  1. Tim was an amazing man. Most of our communication was through email or on here, but when you saw him in person, he was just a warm, personable and larger than life individual. A little background, in Nov 1999, Rivals hired me to be the Indiana high school football editor for Rivals and I opened HoosierPreps.com. The 2020 season was my first covering football and I had a message board that was somewhat active but nowhere near TGD levels, even in those days. I can't remember if Tim found my site first or I found his, but we were online "rivals" (pun intended) but had a mutual respect for what each of us were doing. When the dotcom bust happened and Rivals went bankrupt, it shut the site down. I reopened it as AlmanacSports.com but didn't even bother to reintroduce the message board because TGD was already so strong. Tim and I had a meeting set up to talk about merging the sites or at least working more closely together, but it got postponed and ultimately never happened because he passed away 😞 Tim was an awesome guy and I miss him. Thanks @Bobref for starting this thread. Definitely brought back good memories. I would love to see him inducted into the Indiana Hall of Fame. He definitely deserves it for all his contributions to Indiana High School Football. Dan "Rudy" Engler
  2. Thank you for sharing this! Very cool insight and great we have a link to Coach Kelly. Two questions: any idea why they called him Spike and how long did that trip from Linton to South Bend take? 😊
  3. Great question! I looked but never could find an answer. Back then, many coaches seemed to have nicknames but the papers didn’t elaborate how they got them
  4. Check out the first installment in our new series, the Legends of Indiana High School Football. We look back at Paul "Spike" Kelly, the hall of fame coach who guided Clinton, Sullivan and South Bend Riley to multiple championships over 30+ years, including three state crowns. http://www.almanacsports.com/article.php?news_id=2022051301 Please let me know what you think and who should be featured in the next installment? Thanks, Dan "Rudy" Engler
  5. Looks like Waldron joins Blackhawk Christian with plans for an 8-man team!

Thanks, Dan
  7. Is it the Plymouth Rockies or Plymouth Pilgrims? Trying to clear it up for the website and book, thanks! Dan AlmanacSports.com
  8. Yes! I have published over a dozen books about Indiana High School Football. Here’s a link if you’re interested: http://www.almanacsports.com/books.php Working on another one too which I hope to announce soon 😊 Dan “Rudy” Engler
  9. I’ve self published over a dozen books and would be more than happy to help with this process if you’re interested!
  10. Thanks but that’s my website. Trying to update for the book and will update these on the website too 😊
  11. Anywhere it says unknown. Several Win/loss records which would give a more accurate all-time win percentage. Also for several early seasons, I’m missing who the head coach was. Thanks!
  12. Doing research for the Indiana High School Football Record Book that will be coming out later this year. Any Miners able to help me fill in the gaps?

  13. Just for a little historical perspective, the idea originated with the SAC when the league started. From 1973 to 1979, the two division champions would play foe the conference title. http://www.almanacsports.com/football/conference.php?conf_id=summit The Fort Wayne City Series, the SAC’s predecessor, has one in 1971 and 1972 as well. Cool move though that could create some intriguing matchups. Rudy
  14. I'll scan the scores from Harrell's page, usually copy and paste and add them to my excel file using my format. I'll update the standings file too then upload via FTP to our server. Finally I'll run a php script that my brother created which updates everything on the site. Not the easiest way but done it that way for over a dozen years now lol Dan
  15. DM me your email and I’ll send to you. I don’t think it would be too hard I just don’t have the time right now unfortunately. Thanks!
