  1. I love it. With attendance dwindling in a lot of cases charging 5 bucks an event just doesn't seem right. Nice Job Maconaquah I am totally with tango a student activity fee is a great way to go as well. I have said that for years.
  2. I agree that lay head coaches can be at a disadvantage and present a few more challenges than having a teacher as a head coach, but I do not believe that it impacts one's ability to be a mentor or "teach life lessons" to these young people. If you are engaged with your athletes teachers and have great communication with those teachers and administrators that effort can cover what a teacher head coach does during school. Having the knowledge not just about the sport but about what goes on in your athletes lives shows a willingness to go the extra mile and earns the kids' trust and respect. Any person dedicated to putting in 20 plus hours a week to make the student athletes better as a WHOLE PERSON will do a great job whether they are lay or in school all day
  3. The PAC Conference 2018

    Talented skill positions throughout the PAC. Line play is always understated but really is the difference maker in solid team a nd the really good ones
  4. Southridge Sectional

    Congrats to the Raiders and Coach O'Brien. You could see this team really gel during these 2 tourney games
  5. 3A Sectional 32

    Top half of the draw should be 2 fantastic games
  6. Princeton 17-4 at Heritage Hills 19-2

    Huge credit to Princeton, I thought they played great D, thought they adjusted quickly to the defensive changes made by HH, and they shot well from behind the arc in the 2nd half(I think they made 6 three pointers).
  7. Princeton 17-4 at Heritage Hills 19-2

    Hopefully even though it's a Tuesday, the Patriot crowd will turn out, especially with it being senior night. Should be a great game, 2 very talented teams
  8. I would expect both teams to be relentless playing defense. I feel this game will come down to rebounding and which team converts their easier opportunities into actual points(my guess is those will be limited)
  9. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    Mitchell Becher did exactly everything that was needed. His decision making was outstanding and has been all year. A senior doing whatever it takes.
  10. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    I cannot wait to feel the atmosphere of this game. 2 really good teams. I would guess the largest attendance at HH in quite some time. Better get there early.
  11. Combining South Gibson Basketball Teams

    Many great points on both sides. IHSAA rules are guides but not the law for middle schools and our 5/6 elementary teams are not actually considered "school" teams. Coach Sisley several years ago redid the HH feeder system when we could not field a freshman team(only 4 kids showed up). Our combined group starts in 7th grade and I believe that to be the right age to do it not that you can't wait until later but IMO it makes complete sense from not just a competitive standpoint but from a cohesive standpoint(this way you have a united program before getting to high school level). A little background we have 4 elementary schools that go to 6th grade. Chrisney and Lincoln Trail(south end). David Turnham and Nancy Hanks(north end). Before coach made the changes we had two 6th grade school teams North and South divided by geography. Our 2-5 grades were instructional league. First he got 5th grade teams established(playing other schools) and paid coaches for both 5&6(all of our coaches 2-6 are reviewed and selected by the head coaching staff). It isn't much but the booster club pays them a stipend so there are two 5th and two 6th grade teams(each have an A&B) with a season of about 12 games playing other schools. The feeder coaches have a meeting with coach to understand what he wants taught as to develop each kid and make the program better.We do NOT cut anyone. We no longer use geography but balance these teams competitively. We have seen these kids since 2nd grade so divide 2 best ball handlers, shooters, bigs, etc. These teams practice 2 times a week for about 90 minutes. Our 2nd/3rd grade teams(we usually get about 8 teams with 7 kids) practice 1 or 2 times a week and play games on Saturday and Sundays from Mid December to Mid Feb. (there are a few days off about 14 games). There is no score or scorebook kept and no 3 point line for 2/3. And we stop the game for teaching moments. The 4th grade is the same only 4 teams and we keep the score/fouls but still no 3 point line. At the conclusion of this(mid Feb) for all grades 2-6 a tryout is held for the travel team. Generally we keep 8(sometimes based on skill we may get to 9 or 10 but that is hard since these parents paying $), however ANY kid that tries out is invited to all practices. This rule also goes for our 7th and 8th travel teams. The result is our numbers are very good and no doubt we have some very talented kids going thru our program right now but I believe the skill development and competitiveness of the entire program is definitely related to how this program is being run
  12. Heritage Hills at South Spencer

    No doubt this team is young, talented, and deep. My guess is that the top 7 going against the next 7 makes for some pretty spirited practice sessions and most importantly makes the team better. It's all about roles and responsibilities and right now HH has an entire group connected and doing theirs.
  13. Evansville Career Scoring Record

    All of the basketball skills this young man has are incredible, but the continuous leadership and toughness he displays are just as admirable for me. He seems to always make the right decision for his team.
