  1. I must admit....the one GO DEEP (game-winning play) and little sisters of the poor won them a semi-state. But they can make themselves even better....hope they don't listen to me lol. I hear the DeLong kid has decided to pass up multiple scholarship offers to follow his older brother into Mechanical Engineering locally. The guaranteed internship and industry connections were more valuable than the scholarship dollars in his view. It appears that football needs some kids more than they need it. I'll be in the corner sobbing if you need me. Don't ever marry a girl who is a math wiz.

  2. it stinks what is happening to mid majors as the rich get richer. If mid major lose some/all of their sports programs, will take away so many opportunities for young people to have a student/athlete experience...and will ultimately prevent many from the opportunities of a college education. Its one thing for mid majors to not be competitive...but to not compete at all would be terrible...only for the big to become more wealthy.

  4. Luke Goode started as a sophomore at Homestead. After our season was over, we watched them play Carroll for a sectional title. Luke could have easily been a D1 QB. That was his last year to play football though.

  5. He's a conservation officer now. Imagine being in the woods and thinking it is a good idea to run away from him.

  6. Providence will have Christian Academy (Tenn) coming to town in week 1. Crazy seeing a team West Washington used to play now on schedule of Heritage Hills.

  10. I hate that a local school can't offer both Mechanical Engineering and FCS football like they did 25 years ago.

  11. Sounds like that DeLong kid made a decision based on maturity. I don't know, but I think if I had a chance to speak to his dad, I'd tell him that he had done well raising that kid. I mean ultimately what is going to pay the bills, right? Maturity wins.

  12. With the way HH runs an offense who knows lol. The best athlete on the team is usually the QB so maybe I just assumed he was QB when recalling him playing

  13. It’s funny how concerned you’ve been on how HH runs things lately! Worried about the pass routes being called, the strength of schedule … LOL. The Semi-State champs seem to know what they’re doing. 🤫 On another note, where will Sean be taking his talents in the fall?

  14. My guess is the total football attendance is about the same. I would disagree. The old big 8 schools typically didn't travel well to Jasper (VL included) unless their teams were good, which for that last 20 years was few and far between for most of them. If I had to choose the current schedule or the old schedule, I choose the current schedule.

  15. We miss this game on our schedule. Terribly miss it. This is historically one of our best rivalries (SR would be the next) as we were 11-10 against them....so at least we can always say that we got a game on them. Not to mention that not one Jasper coach has a winning record against HH. Love that one! I laughed too hard at this....because it's true. By the way, not everyone enjoys that schedule.

  16. They also picked up MD by moving to SIAC, so the "new" good gates would be MD, Castle and Reitz (but I honestly don't know how well Reitz fans travel to Jasper). No question Bosse, Harrison and Central would be much less gate than Wash, BV & Mt. V. Bosse did have some decent crowds last year being that they were competitive. Coincidently, Kyle Sokeland has an article on the 5th anniversary of the SIAC expansion in today's Courier. https://www.courierpress.com/story/sports/high-school/2024/05/21/a-look-at-sw-indiana-athletics-five-years-after-conference-realignment/73726204007/

  17. In the old PAC schedule, you only had room for 2 non-conferences games. I believe there was a stretch there (maybe 4 years?) when SR had Eville Central on the schedule...was one of their (Central's) best 4 year stretches in school history as luck would have it for us lol. And then obviously our other "non conference" game was filled with county rival Jasper. I know HH routinely played Jasper as well (although there was a time when they took a break from each other) ....so that only left 1 non-conference game. I don't recall who they filled that with...but don't remember it being any Eville schools .

  19. Zero percent chance there are 12% of kids using steroids lol

  20. I’d be willing to bet that most kids are referring to creatine and weight gainers. When asking kids if they use anything to enhance their appearance that leaves a lot to interpretation. “12% of boys reported using products to enhance appearance, muscle mass or strength” vs “12% of boys reported using steroids” would have been more in line with the clickbait headline. The author clearly doesn’t know the difference. And he refers to “one study” for his data set. A quick peek at his LinkedIn says he has “research experience”. This article might be the full extent of that experience. This is the actual cited reference from the article “According to a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the prevalence of PED use among high school athletes in the United States ranged from 2.7% to 4.0%, depending on the specific sport.6 Another study found that 8% of girls and 12% of boys used products to improve appearance, muscle mass, or strength, and 3.3% of high school students admitted to using steroids.7 “3.3% of high school athletes admitted to using steroids” is the actual number. This is the cited study: Dandoy C, Gereige RS. Performance-enhancing drugs. Pediatr Rev. Jun 2012;33(6):265-71; quiz 271-2. doi:10.1542/pir.33-6-265 It’s from 2012. Not sure that it qualifies as “still a major issue”. Why did I waste my time going down this rabbit hole? I must be bored out of my skull this morning.

  21. I wasn’t alive but did we have a fair and honest, balanced media when Jefferson was around? The way the actions of these two buffoons who we have to choose between in November are covered by the mainstream media could not be more different. One is Hitler, no matter what decision he makes or what he says, and the other is a poor old man whom we should feel sorry for.

  23. Warsaw has had almost 2 decades of really good kickers - I may be missing one or two, but off the top of my head, I can remember the following kickers in the last 20 years that have gone on to play at the collegiate level: Jeremy Sharp - Rose-Hulman Jordan Quiroz - Butler Jake Rogers - Cincinnati (made it to the final cut in 2 or 3 NFL preseasons, but never made an NFL roster) Matt Franco - Indianapolis (I think he played on the Greyhound soccer team too - or maybe he only played soccer in college) Andrew Mevis - Fordham / Iowa State (was cut by Jacksonville Jaguars during training camp and has bounced around the UFL and IFL) Harrison Mevis - Missouri (currently signed by the Carolina Panthers) Mason Smythe - current Warsaw kicker that will most likely go D1 8 kickers in 20ish years of football going on to play at the collegiate level, 3 at the D1 level and another likely headed that direction is honestly pretty crazy when you think about it.
