  1. Adams Central with a special teams score. Let’s see how Coach Pasch and Lutheran respond. AC’s defense played well but was tested on that first series. Great start.
  2. If I’m either one of the Catholic schools in the SAC I tell the IHSAA we volunteer to stay in 5A or 6A. I wonder if there is such a thing as a volunteer bump up? 🤷🏻‍♂️
  3. That’s insane to me. Best pure running back in the area IMO. Honestly, there’s a lot of talent here in the Fort Wayne area with little to no offers 🤷🏻‍♂️
  4. Columbus North is a solid win no question. It’s never easy to beat a 6A team as a smaller school. New Albany had a tremendous run this year but going into the year was New Albany considered a team to watch in 5A?? No. Kentucky Warren. Great pickup on the schedule. Love that GS picked up an out of state juggernaut. Heritage Hills is another solid 3A program and Southridge a solid 2A program. Agreed also that the schedule is much better than it had been in years past. Kudos to GS for that. I just feel that Brebeuf plays better teams is all. I truly believe this will be the best game of the weekend, I just think SOS plays a part, albeit small.
  5. 1A: Adams Central: IF AC can control the line of scrimmage and churn out long scoring drives, I like their chances. 2A: To me this is a coin flip. These teams are very similar in what they do and how the program is run. Mater Dei is probably pumped they don’t have to run into Luers at state again to ruin their fun! I’ll take MD by 3. 3A: Brebeuf Jesuit: Another good matchup, I just think the level of competition that GS plays in the regular season shows here. Still a close game but Brebeuf takes it. 4A: Mt. Vernon: Any team that can take it to Roncalli and that mammoth offensive line is pretty darn good 👍🏼 Northridge has been impressive but the run ends here. 5A: Cathedral: I think these last 2 games are easier to call. Zionsville will make it a better game than last year but still not enough. 6A: Center Grove: See above ⬆️: Although LN did make CG look human a few weeks back 👀 it’s still CG by 2-3 scores. Good Luck and God Bless to all players and coaches this weekend!!
  6. There’s a few different problems with the SAC as it sits right now. I think everyone in this thread can and has acknowledged that fact. First thing I’d like to address is is that as a Luers guy, I would rather play a 9 game schedule where We’re playing the absolute best of the best every week. I can’t and won’t speak for players and coaches there now but 15-20 years ago, we wanted those games and hated that we couldn’t play teams like Chatard, Cathedral, Carmel and Warren. Does Luers benefit from playing in the SAC? Yes. But only 4 of the other 9 teams. The other 5 schools have 0 benefit from a competitive standpoint. Fort Wayne football used to have no problem competing with Indy. That was also almost 2 decades ago. I think a lot of it has to do with the amount of kids in each school (Bigger sample size) but I also think it has a lot to do with teams moving away from a more physical style of play. Physicality used to be a staple here. Now, not as much. Another thing I thought of, someone in another thread spoke of what Adams county football would look like if AC and South Adams were 1 school? What if the SAC were to do something similar? Combine schools to create a couple 6A schools with 2500-3000 kids a piece. I bet that’s a big enough of a sample size. Just my thoughts 🤷🏻‍♂️
  7. Eastside played their absolute best game tonight. Their clock management and offensive line play was top notch. Defensively, that was about as perfect of a game as a team could hope to play against Luers and I don’t think I’m being facetious when I say that either lol. I mean really, that was about as perfect of a defensive game as it gets.
  8. Agreed. We have the athletes in Fort Wayne, we just can’t spew out 6’7 290 linemen at all our schools like schools down in Indy metro. Even the small schools have big linemen down there. That’s where Fort Wayne is behind IMO.
  9. I saw things in the Snider game that concerned me. When we play a good offensive line and good power run attack, teams chew clock and keep our offense off the field. Was it motivation? Yes. Did I honestly think Eastside had a chance to win? Yes. They have what Luers has had trouble with and as we know, there’s always that chance. Well, the chance happend 🤷🏻‍♂️
  10. Congratulations to the Panthers on a hard fought win!! Will be pulling for you the rest of the way!
  11. Forgive me! It’s been some years since I’ve made my way down that way. I do know it was nearby, that’s all I can safely say lol.
  12. Been there a time or two for a basketball regional. I remember having time between games and we ended up at a bowling alley. I think it was the only thing to do in Tipton. If I remember correctly though the food wasn’t bad. Any Tipton folks that would like to send any good eat spots my way that’d be greatly appreciated 👍🏼😆 Now back to the game. Some questions I have…will Tipton be able to neutralize Eastbrook at the point of attack? Can Eastbrook’s secondary contain the pass game of Tipton? Will turnovers and special teams become a huge deciding factor? I think if Tipton offensively can run the ball efficiently up the middle of the defense early, that’ll open up the pass game. Defensively, I’m not sure what Tipton runs but I’d run an adjusted 5-2 that way your covered up front but also covered on the off chance of a play option pass.
