  1. Freshman Teams Disappearing Fast

    Good point -- I wonder what % of kids that go to PP carry on private High Schools?
  2. Smack Talk

    Keep pointing backward........NWA, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy!
  3. Smack Talk

    That wasn't hip-hop......Prodigy is EDM (Electronica) and/or Alt Rock. Some would call it Techno (which would be wrong) but not Hip-Hop. I'm not being a smart butt....just trying to help educate. They are in this guide considered the gold standard of the history of Electronic music. http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/
  4. Freshman Teams Disappearing Fast

    This touches on an issue that has needed be addressed for years. Kids grow and mature at different rates.....the kid that was shorter and heavy in 5th grade can mature into a 6'4" beast. Likewise the taller quicker kid in 5th grade can end up small and slow by the time he is freshman. Unfortunately these kids get pigeon holed at a young age and don't play multiple positions. Sometimes the rules say if your are (X) weight you can only play line. So the bigger kids that really need to participate are already limited. Fast forward a few years and who is playing QB? The kid that already has experience doing it?.....or someone who has never touched the ball. Football is going to have to adapt to attract more kids.
  5. Freshman Teams Disappearing Fast

    HSE frosh numbers down -- even in populated area like ours the youth participation rate had dropped about 15% and we are feeling it.
  6. I don't see much to disagree with here except positioning and maybe Chatard?.....but I am sure you guys will have other valuable insights. http://www.maxpreps.com/news/Tv04U0d4c0KOIdd2X6kQfw/high-school-football-dynasty-ratings--indiana.htm
  7. seems logical but everyone wants to show how smart (they think) they are

  9. 8-10 Scrimmages

    I'm sure you do....but I think the competition is cooling. Classes of 2015 to about 2020 had some high defections but it has really tapered down. In some sports they don't have the dominance or selling points they had before. Academically HSE (and Fishers) have the new academies built in and more AP/college options than private schools so that has helped.
  10. 8-10 Scrimmages

    Yes....at Chatard, and I agree a good match-up. Truthfully I worry sometimes about taking our kids and having parents interfacing with a private school. It can almost be "marketing" for them. They have a great field there. However, not many HSE kids end up there as it is just not an easy drive. We lose most to Cathedral, Gueirn, and Heritage......and out of that group when it comes to top athletes it always seems to be Cathedral. I mentioned in a post earlier I think there are 5 or 6 varsity players at Cathedral that would be HSE kids. 3 of them are top athletes. (Sanders, Elliott, Kaufman)
  11. 8-10 Scrimmages

    HSE at Chatard 7PM
  12. Cathedral challenges?

    "Disinformation" probably was the wrong term My main point really being that the early word in circles has been that the offense will be much improved. They were apparently disappointed in the Purcell kid (not sure if that is why he left). The new QB (Edwards) apparently throws the ball better and played some last year so that's possibly an upgrade. They have two quick running backs with experience. Two huge recruited OTackles (Elliott and Kaufman both 6'5/285). According to article they are moving a scholarship kid (Sanders) from D to receiver. Add to all of this what is supposed to be a much better Offensive system! Maybe the Star just kind of mailed it in and didn't dig deeper?? On a side note --- the reason for interest is that they have 7 kids playing there that would be at HSE. In the past years several kids have left Cathedral after starting there to come back to HSE. If they are not getting the experience they planned for the doors are always open for them to come back.
  13. Another interesting Star article. I thought the big deal with new coach (Peebles) was his offense? They really seem to be downplaying it here. Maybe purposeful disinformation? It also mentions Rick Strieff is now the AD! That one kind of slipped in there. Gotta wonder if that was in the works last year? https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2018/08/01/high-school-football-countdown-no-9-cathedral-has-new-look/882561002/
