  1. Michigan City is defending their first regional championship.
  2. Mishawaka to NLC

    Freeby mentioned that two schools applied to fill the vacancy left by Memorial, Mishawaka and New Prairie. Would not be surprised to see New Prairie try to become the 7th member of the Northwest Crossroads and basically fill the spot left by Griffith when they bolted for the Greater South Shore. It is apparent that New Prairie does not want to be in the NIC.
  3. Just across the state line from us in Michigan New Buffalo and Bridgman High Schools are going to co-op programs and become the South County Cougars. The report states that if were not for the merger both programs would fold due to lack of players on the roster. http://wsbt.com/news/local/bridgman-bees-combining-with-new-buffalo-bison-to-create-south-county-cougars https://www.heraldpalladium.com/sports/local/time-to-co-operate/article_4fa203cc-5bc5-591f-8611-d18b9f644d54.html
  4. Condolences and deepest sympathy goes out to the Sharpe and La Porte Slicer football family. Coach Sharpe and his wife Kristen infant son Jacob passed away yesterday at 9 months old after battling dural sinus thrombosis and arterio-venous fistulas in the brain. http://www.thenewsdispatch.com/obituaries/article_73aeca19-e238-55eb-b18d-727599e96235.html
  5. Just responding to your statement that nobody want to take any of these coaching jobs and the ADs are clueless. Our AD at City holds a BA from the University of Illinois and 2 masters from DePaul and Loyola and prior to coming here held positions at the professional, Division 1 college and some of the top tier High Schools in every section of the Chicago area. We were not just going to hang around until the end of the school year and promote from within and hang him with the interim tag.
  6. Long time region high school football and basketball Broadcaster from the Regional Radio Sports Network Dave Miller passed away Monday from a massive heart attack over the Memorial Day weekend. Dave had a real love and passion for providing coverage to our kids games and was always fun and joyful to listen every time we tuned in to listen to a game. He was always a regular that called into Indiana Sports Talk with Bob Lovell to give the recap on the game that he called. He was the radio voice of Michigan City Wolves boys basketball for the past several seasons and the last game I listened to him call was the Michigan City Marquette basketball teams 1A state championship win over Vincennes Rivet.
  7. Not true. Michigan City had 40 applicants after Mike Kapinski resigned in 2015, the pool was narrowed down to a handful and Phil Mason was the one that stood out. I was very flattered that so many guys wanted to come to Michigan City and be our boys coach. We stayed right on top of our AD during the entire hiring process and he could not have been more transparent.
  8. Jason Grunewald is only the 3rd head coach in the history of the Munster Mustangs football program which started in 1966 succeeding John Friend and Leroy Marsh. Hopfully Munster does not become another program that cycles through a new head coach/coaching regime every 4 or 5 seasons like Portage and Valpo has now seem to become.
  9. Since we are in the doldrums of the off season I thought I might be fun to try a topic that I have never seen before in all my years on the GID. Who are all the athletes you have seen play LIVE at each level: high school, college and the pros. Mine are: Jeff Samardija - Valparaiso High School, Notre Dame and for both the Oakland A's and Chicago White Sox Skylar Diggins - South Bend Washington High School, Notre Dame and the Tulsa Shock
  10. They all train with a with a guy named Eric Griffin who runs the Elite Performance Academy at the Northwest Athletic Club in Michigan City.
  11. I read that Dave Coyle has joined new Brickies head coach Craig Osika's staff at Hobart. Coyle serve as the defensive coordinator which was the position he held at Valpo before taking over after Mark Hoffman retired. Hobart also hired former Valpo/Purdue quarterback Jason Renn. Sounds like the Brickies are putting together a really good staff and might be one of the surprise teams in 4A north this year.
  12. Is there any former Indiana high school football players expected to be selected in this years NFL draft or are we going to get skunked again?
  13. I forgot they call it the Prime 25 now. Very prestigious honor for all these young men.
  14. Does anyone have any information on the 2018 Indiana Football DIgest? When is the Tremendous 26 going to be announced? Am interested to find out who will be honored to grace the cover of the magazine.
  15. Wait a minute, How did Michigan City High School go from being the program that was supposed to be leaving the Duneland conference for the NIC and Munster take MC's place in the Duneland to become the "new defacto Division 1 breeding ground in Northwest Indiana and leaving other Duneland Conference schools in the dust when it comes to developing young talent for next level competition."
