  1. I know it's possibly not something to make a topic of... but I know he was a member here are one point, prolly still was. He was an assistant for a while as well at Linton. But mainly he was a lifelong friend of mine, my partner in the radio booth for many years of Linton Football... including both those losses to Ritter in semi state... both his sons were Miner standouts.. Josh thru 2008 and Tyler thru 2016 winning the state in 1A. He was a fixture at all sporting events in Linton... but football was his love. He had been running the scoreboard at the Roy in Linton these last couple years. He himself was a terrific athlete at QB and RB thru 1983 taking the Miners to new levels that really set Linton into a football mentality. I know a lot of football coaches and former players in the area will know him... Unfortunately, he was found deceased in his cabin after not showing up for work. Apparently heart related. He loved his kids, loved Linton Football... Godspeed to you John Paul Meurer.
  2. Well I think my MIners will be very compe…. what?.. oh... oops...
  3. There's the big plays LuHI needed-- 41 yard deep pass TD ,,, But they still need to show they can slow down LCC
  4. LCC moving the ball with ease.... Lutheran NEEDS to answer or this will be a long day for the Saints..
  5. Linton Coach Brian Oliver posted this on Facebook... In memory of Coach Bowsman, we will be joining schools across the state and turning our lights on at The Roy tomorrow through Saturday. This is to honor a great man who brought so much passion to High School football . Miner nation is sending their love and prayers to Coach Bowsman family & to the West Washington Community
  6. Tremendous Idea. Coach Lowe you have my thoughts and prayers as well. Phillip was a great guy to talk football with, and I'm guessing was a great guy to have any conversation about actually! I only know him from conversations we had about Linton/West Washington and many other contests over the years in my research. Such a sad story all the way around. Watching the video of the game and seeing the other coaches talking the the Senator Players on the break before 2nd quarter.. heart-wrenching in the harshest form. I would hope schools, particularly those with ties to Coach Bowsman.. as well as those like ourselves in Linton.. who had some battles on the field but respect off it... would partake. I don't know though if this being Thanksgiving week.. anyone will be around the school to do it. I know there is great sadness is Linton over the terrible news.
  7. I would wonder why team leadership itself in the locker room didn't seize this situation early on, and get that behavior stopped from the get-go.
  8. This is absolutely terrible news. Coach Bowsman always went out of this to talk to me the times Linton faced off with his Senators. And we had great discussions on social media about football and small school sports in general in past years. I was very happy for his success and know that he is very respected and liked by the whole community. I had send him a personal note just a couple weeks back as the Senators rolled thru their regional win. WW is in the middle of nowhere, but what a place it is to be on a high school football Friday night. I know this has to be so hard on his family, his team, and the whole WW area. My lasting memory was after Linton beat WW in one of the tourney games at Cambellsburg how we talked for 45 minutes in an endzone after everyone had left the field. JUst hate to hear this happening to someone so young and who gives so much back to his community. My prayers to all affected.
