  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. I forgot they call it the Prime 25 now. Very prestigious honor for all these young men.
  6. 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.
  7. 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."
  8. Both our boys and girls boys basketball coaches at Michigan City has coached against their alma maters and their team where they led the school to a state championship as head coach: Michigan City boys basketball coach John Boyd VS. Gary West Side (won 4A in 2002 at West Side) Michigan City girls basketball coach Mike Megyese VS. South Bend St. Joe (won 3A in 2005 at St. Joe)
  9. Thanks Coach Snyder!!!
  10. I see the IFCA state coaches clinic was this weekend. Does anybody have the list of the North-South All Star selections. Am interested to see who we are going to be Cheering on in July.
  11. Ryan Stefanko 6'3" 255lbs Guard/Tackle from Michigan City High School (Class of 2019) has received a football scholarship from Ball State. Stefanko is also the all time school record holder in the shotput.
  12. Way too common in the region, prime example of the coaching carousal moves from point A to point B we have had throughout the years: Some right off the top of my head: Chesterton's Mark Peterson VS. Portage Former Hammond Morton coach Roy Richards VS. East Chicago Former Michigan City coach Craig Buzea VS. Portage Homewood-Flossmoor (IL) Craig Buzea VS. Michigan City New Prairie's Russ Radtke VS. Griffith North Newton's Jeff Bean VS. River Forest Former Hammond High coach Eric Schrieber VS. Hammond Noll Former Hammond Clark coach Eric Schrieber VS. Hammond High and Hammond Noll Former Hobart coach Wally McCormack VS. Andrean Former Andrean coach Phil Mason VS. Wheeler Former Crown Point Coach Dave Egofske VS. East Chicago Former South Central coach Dan Klimczak VS. Wheeler Former Crown Point coach Brad Smith VS. Highland Former Calumet coach Ivan Zimmer VS. Andrean
  13. Having your high school building and your football facility located in 2 completely separate parts of town is a logistical nightmare, it really has an adverse effect on your away games. Lots of players will be skipping practice. It has been that way at Michigan City for decades. I highly suggest your practices and workouts, equipment storage and team activities needs to be based out of your new high school building and Rice Field stadium should only be utilized on game night, that is what Phil Mason has done since he came over from Andrean and it has worked out really well..
  14. Chase Triplett (Michigan City High School Class of 2019), 6'3, 205LB linebacker has verbally committed to Purdue. Michigan City High School has now had a Division 1 college football recruit 3 years in a row: Class of 2017: Markice Hurt Ball State Class of 2019: Braden Fiske Western Michigan Class of 2019: Chase Triplett Purdue https://www.landof10.com/purdue/chase-triplett-commits-purdue-football
  15. If the property is prone to flooding the Elkhart schools need to relocate their facilities to drier ground.
