    Monrovia vs Triton Central

    Both teams will be well coached up and ready. Good luck to all the ICC teams tonight!

    Cascade defeats Danville

    Congratulations to Coach Spinks, Coach Engel and the rest of the Cadet staff and players. Great coaches and even better men!
  3. A sincere thank you to the brave men and women that have served and continue to serve. Your service and sacrifice are greatly appreciated!
  4. There have been many programs that have been on the brink of cancellation and have found a way to work hard, resurrect themselves, and be very successful. Just because a program is falling on hard times, doesn't mean you teach the kids that are coming out and fighting day in and day out, its ok to quit on them. There are many important life lessons that can be learned, even on a losing football team. Lessons like perseverance, teamwork, accountability, responsibility, and just all around respect for fellow teammates and coaches. If you're looking at the almighty win as the most important lesson learned, you're missing out and you're doing the kids you coach a disservice. Im not saying winning is not important, it is very important, but I am saying that being a part of something bigger than yourself is more important. If you continue to tirelessly teach the lessons talked about above, winning will, eventually take care of itself.
  5. I'll explain this to you when I have time. Right after my enshrinement speech in Canton.

    Im not sure about Centerville as a program, but they have a good Coach. Coached against him many times and is a quality coach and a class act.

    Tough being a coach these days

    I completely understand, and it is a risk-managmewnt issue. However, if you have kids that do not have the means to get to practice any other way, sometimes you take that chance. I would hate to not have the opportunity to positively impact a kids life strictly because he, nor his family could afford transportation to and from practice. And as I said, I understand the legal issue here, but I also understand changing lives and providing young men with tools to be successful in life, not just football.

    Tough being a coach these days

    This is not only a Coach problem, this is a society problem. I know there are many great parents that are teaching their kids to be gritty and do things the right way, but on the other hand, many are too worried about hurting people's feeling instead of teaching them the right way. If we teach our athletes anything as coaches, it should be that life is not fair and you have to persevere through tough things in life to be successful. We are are doing our kids a disservice teaching them the world revolves around them and preparing them for a warm and fuzzy real world that doesn't truly exist!
  9. Getting to play on the varsity football field with both of my brothers. All 3 of us playing the greatest game ever created together was something special!

    Coach Moyers to Warren Central

    Coach West and Coach Moyers together. That sounds like trouble to me! Congratulations to both of you, two great coaches and even better guys!

    Not preaching to anyone. It can be used as a teachable moment to teach a kid to not make the same mistakes that you have made. I am sure everyone on here has made mistakes, the only difference is some get caught. I'm sure Coach Fine learned a life long lesson from this and will not let something like this happen again. If one kids learns a lesson from his mistake it was not wasted. Coach Fine has admitted his mistake, and is accepting responsibility, and in the end accountability for your actions is one of the most important lessons you can teach a young adult.
  12. If you are using a team as your motivation that would seem that they are trying to get to their level. You are taking it as a form of disrespect but actually it is a form of respect. The Whiteland strength coach and entire coaching staff is one of the classiest, most committed group of coaches out there. If you need locker room material you can twist it how ever you want, but I am sure the coaching staff at Whiteland is well aware of the level that Cathredal plays and is trying to match that level. Good luck to both teams and stay healthy. GO WARRIORS!
  13. Excuse me sir, there have been 2 posts by people involved with the Beech Grove football program. Go back and check them, they are both under the screen name of Coach Freimanis. They both say that we were flat out outplayed in every facet of the game and dominated on both sides of the ball. We have to get better or get used to it when it comes to playing that level of competition, and get better , we will, through hard work and dedication. So before you start saying people are whining at least know what you are talking about please. Good luck to all schools still competing and the New Pal - Roncalli game should be a good physical game. Good luck to both teams and classy programs.
