  1. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/charles-stanier-obituary?pid=197567019 Gary legend and Hall of Famer Passed away. Charlie Stanier, all state football player at Gary Horace Mann and then legendary coach at Valparaiso High School during the state championship in 1975 passed away recently. May he rest in peace. Charlie, a giant of a man, as a coach, teacher, and human being, was a legend in the Region. All of you who remember him know of what I speak.
  2. This CP coaching comment line going to light up soon....admin rules apply
  3. With the right coach and staff both programs could be be good. Maybe CP better job at this point for next year as they could compete more quickly. People talking about Mason...should be talking about Roy Richards as possibility as well. I don't disagree that City will have a decent team next year with some returners coming back, but to place them as a the conference leader I think is premature. Even with losing some players, Valpo and Mville will still be tough to beat. Mville has best talent in conference, Valpo has not lost in over 21 games. Chesterton has their star quarterback back
  4. Certainly athletic ability crucial to winning football...and getting your athletes (no matter the race) to play is the key. Let me remind you as you place Mville as the standard bearer of Dac football that Valpo has won over 20 straight Games in the DAC. Too bad that game was canceled this year.
  5. Counting the minutes til DT gets reprimanded from admin about coaching hires speculation and we get to have that debate again!
  6. They play mville I believe in first game...with the bye week they will have 3 weeks without a game
  7. I appreciate BOBref and his honesty and insight about this mistake. Refs are human and make mistakes. The problem is this.. There are two possibilities with this issue. I assume Bobref was at the game since he said he said they had a nice chat after the game. 1. They conferred and not one person on the crew knew the rule. BOBref has said there is no excuse for not knowing the rule. 2. The 2nd possibility is worse. Members of that crew knew the rule, but just didnt care enough or have the courage of their convictions to tell the others what the rule was. That is totally sad i
  8. I know refs make mistakes, but it is difficult to believe an experienced varsity crew did not know that rule on kicks.
  9. 'There had to be a couple Hail Marys': Calumet gets green light to resume fall contact sports James Boyd On Monday night, the Lake Ridge school board held a meeting and voted to restart fall contact sports. Calumet will resume practice later this week but can't play in its Week 6 home game.
  10. Boiler mentioned Valpo was just in the state finals for 5a (2019) last year and also in 2001. So that would make Lowell, Andrean, Whiting, and Valpo with state final appearances. I guess most region people don't see Laporte county as part of the "region" but I should mention the Slicers run to the state title a few years back and New Prairie under Radtke made it as well.

  12. dmizers is a very smart man....with a long season...covid and everything else its just projection now....but we all know the following in 5a that Cathedral, new pal, dwenger, and Valpo (Michigan city might be there too) all very good... lets all hope we keep on playing...
  13. This beginning of the season thing is so jaded for the covid stuff, that everyone needs to relax and just enjoy that you have football to watch. There are kids from both teams that are quarantined or dont have enough practices and guys are playing who might not even be starters. remember these kids only really started practice 3 weeks ago and had no real summer or spring to practice. For at least this one afternoon, we had a dramatic ending to a good football game on a Saturday afternoon. We better enjoy it, because there are no guarantees going forward.
