  1. Coach Hummer was my freshman coach in 1969 at Rensselaer Central. Coach Siderwitz, Coach Geisman and Coach Hummer all influenced the direction I chose. Coach Hummer was an outstanding classroom teacher and an inspirational coach on the gridiron. I remember his wit and smile as if it were yesterday. My prayers go out for him and to his family! What a great man… George Gilbert, retired coach

  3. Please keep retired coach Dale Hummer in your thoughts and prayers. He’s battling the big C and the outlook isn’t looking good. His head coaching career started at Fountain Central in 1973. He led the Mustangs to back to back undefeated seasons in 75 and 76 and playoff spots. In 1978 FC was 1A runner up to Lawrenceburg. He left Fountain Central after the 1980-81 school year and went to Bloomington South. He didn’t have the success there that was expected and from what I remember didn’t have much support for the administration. He ended up at Dekalb and led them to a state title. Coach Hummer was responsible for launching the coaching careers for several successful coaches including, Gene Jellybean Rowe, Rick Malone, Brian Moore and one of the best in Myron Mo Moiarity. I’m sure there’s many more. Thanks everyone ✌️💙

  4. Coach Hummer was my 8th Social Studies teacher and what a GREAT one he was as he was also my Freshman Football Coach at Rensselaer in 1967. What a great Teacher and Coach with a wonderful sense of humor. As I moved on to varsity football under Coach Siderwicz Coach Hummer was always there supporting us and pushing on. As Coach Gilbert stated Coach Hummer, Siderwicz, Geesman, Burvan, and Brandenburg had a big impact on the community of Rensselaer and my future in coaching. As I entered coaching Coach Hummer was also a person I could talk with for guidance. My Prayers also go out to him and his family! God Bless.

  5. I have long wondered why the state final broadcast doesn't bring in the folks who have covered the team involved all year to the broadcast. Perhaps not as the main guy, the main play by play guy, but to add the knowledge of what the team does...who is who.. because I am amazed at how many times the wrong kid is named... and I know mistakes happen...and they don't really have much time to dive and research a whole season's worth of games. I know I'd much rather hear the voice of someone who really understands who the team counts on, who gets it done and what a team is about. I'd love a 3 man team....one from both sides and a neutral host.

  7. Jerry is a very kind and generous person. I know he spent time over the years with my young broadcasters walking them through his notes and his research for games. Jerry's one of the few people who can still make me starstruck. He may have lost a step or two, but that's a step or two no one else had.

  9. Yes they would have. Coyle great kid and had a terrific season. I would bet money there are 3 other RB's behind him that know Coach Moore's Wing T system and can run it in their sleep (they've only been doing it since the 2nd or 3rd grade). Wheat went down Coyle stepped up. Thomeson was moved from defense to offense. Regardless of any of that Hansen still had 1,008 more rushing yards in 1 less game (and yes the dogs were called off in games at Roncalli too just like CG) and 13 more TD's. Both were even in receiving yards as well. ANyone that says stats don't matter for a position award is fooling themselves While some CG fans were very upset Russ Yeast did not win Mr. Football over Hunter Johnson, that was less of a travesty than Luke Hansen not being the RB award and it isn't even to the Mr. Football award. When talking schedule strength do NOT use Sagarin as Sagarin does not take Out of State opponents into consideration (good or bad). If you want to debate Strength of Schedule you should look at Calpreps (which takes all opponents into consideration). Roncalli's SOS was 20.5 and Center Grove's was 36.8 (lower the number better the SOS) Roncalli's opponents were 108-62 Center Grove's were 83-74. (Shortridge, Attucks, and Southport definitely brought down Roncalli's SOS both teams had no choice in who they played especially in the Tournament). It can be spun however anyone wants but this was one of the biggest travesty moments for the position awards. I take nothing away from Coyle as he is a good kid and good football player, but he wasn't better than Hansen this year. Yes the CG fans would be super upset if the roles were reversed and that was evident from the year Russ Yeast didn't win it over Hunter Johnson (which was even less of a travesty because Yeast at least got the position award).

  10. Correct. Did that last week when I sparred with @Coach Nowlin. Look, plenty of guys have rushed for 2500+ yards (don’t have the numbers in front of me) and not won the award but 3100 yards on a 12-2 team that played a top 20 schedule and to not even win your POSITION award is unheard of. There has to be more to the story.

  15. Uh, no. In 2019 Brock Combs dominated the 4A state title game on both sides of the ball, but was referred to as "Luke Combs" several times. Brock was a helluva football player, but he couldn't play guitar or carry a tune at all.

  16. LCC has no advantage. They had bad teams for years. Many Catholics in the area go to Jeff. About every 10 years they have some good players come through the system. I think public schools have gone down hill in the past 50 years, and the Catholic schools haven't changed. LCC can't seem to beat WL. Maybe we should just get rid of class sports. That might make everybody happy. LCC is in 2a and if they went to 3a they would probably never win. But that's what some people want.

  24. Bama lost 2 games...beat Texas by 1 (TCU beat them by 7), beat a 5-7 Texas A&M team only by 4 at home, and beat Ole Miss by 6. The game they lost to Tenn, Bama gave up 52 points. This was not one of Bama's finest years and I am just fine they are on the outside looking in. Had to chuckle at Saban's argument they won their last 3...yes it was their last 3 because they lost to LSU before to cap the streak at 3. Those 3 teams were Ole Miss (solid team), Auburn (bad year...they fired their coach) and Austin Peay (FCS school). That was not an impressive winning streak.

  27. Don't let your new association with Merrillville and @Piratefan101 diminish your ability to think. Sure, 5A as a whole wasn't very appealing to the eyes; however, Valpo, Whiteland, Snider and North Side were VERY good football teams.

  32. This does not matter. Mutiplier's do nothing but try to address a couple of teams because they had success, while punishing some others. Prime example how much more success has Gibson Southern had compared to Hammond Noll. Hammond Noll has won a grand total of like 3 games over the last 10 years. It is easy to just say "Slap a multiplier" and turn your head. Success Factor is a much better idea. The current success factor is flawed because it looks at 2 years only.

  35. You seem at least reasonably intelligent. Are you are really going to deny the difference in student populations and that it should merely be ignored and/or that it isn't a huge advantage in a enrollment only based system? To your earlier point, many family make this "sacrifice" based on educational opportunities.....that really doesn't matter at all. Whatever the reasons are it results in a completely different student population with drastically less deadweight. I am ok with all of that, but if we want the classes to be as close as we can get them to like for like.....this situation has to be accounted for. I think it says alot about the real motives of private parents who are staunchly against it.

  36. Catholics have more “athletes per capita” due to all of the calisthenics they do in mass. Stand, sit, kneel, sit, stand, walk to the alter, genuflect, walk back, turn and shake hands, sit, stand…Did I miss any? Now we know the real secret to their success.

  37. They are split to certain HS as feeder schools. West Deanery would be Cardinal Ritter, East would be Scecina Memorial, South Roncalli, and North Bishop Chatard. You also have long standing and legacy students that will go to the 2 Private Catholic schools Brebeuf Jesuit and Cathedral. Here are all the Deanery's https://www.archindy.org/parishes/deanery/index.html

  44. Yet another example of why a two year cycle is stupid. If SF points is going to be the system, it needs to be AT LEAST 3...preferably 4+. You could reclassify by enrollment every 2 years, and apply SF points every 4 (or even a rolling 4 year cycle).

  46. As mentioned, Lburg graduated an "incredibly talented QB/receiver duo just last year". Yoon, the QB part of that duo threw for 9115 yards and 95 TD's over his HS career so there are playbooks in the coaching office that have a few pass plays in them. I also like mentioning that Yoon ran for 3649 yards and 51 TD's because those are nice complimentary numbers for a throwing QB at any level. I thought LBurg may try and pass the ball more this year but the Tigers were looking at a new starting QB, a completely new offense, majority of the O-line as first year starters....they didn't know what they had on offense. We already knew RB Bennett was good but he missed games earlier in the season with an injury so I'm guessing the coaching staff was just trying to win games. RB Witte really didn't start running the ball outside of some wildcat short yardage situations until the end of the regular season and start of the playoffs. As far as run heavy, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" I guess. The run heavy game plans got the Tigers to the state finals and after three quarters, they were still sniffing at a championship. If anyone didn't notice, Chatard has a damn good football with gamers and playmakers that, for those first six minutes of the fourth quarter, made championship winning plays. RB Bennett is back next year so LBurg will still be run first. QB Ahaus has no problem with arm strength and it looks like there's WR talent available for next year so with a year a varsity experience under his belt, I think LBurg will throw the ball more next year. I know South Dearborn, Batesville, and others will have something to say about it, but LBurg would love to battle Heritage Hills, Southridge, and/or Gibson Southern again for a chance to win those blue ribbons next year.

  47. Actually, Jerry was first a DJ at WIFE radio when they first went on the air, and that was 1963. Jerry is from Sullivan, IN, and often has talked about when he was driving up to Indy for the job, he found out that his DJ name would be Jack Sunday. He has to be closing in on 80 years old, if not already there. Jerry also was the person who introduced The Beatles for their first of two shows during the 1964 Indiana State Fair. He was hired in 2017 to be the Pacers PA announcer after long time PA guy Reb Porter (another old WIFE DJ) retired. I never was at one of his games, but I heard it didn't go well. He was replaced the following season. The link below is about 2 minutes, starting with Jerry's introduction of the group.
