    All teams not D1 in Indiana

    Franklin and my Alma-mater Mount St Joe will battle for 1st place in the HCAC this Saturday in Cincy. In my time at MSJ we were never able to get past Franklin but gave them a tough game my Jr. year. This is the best shot at a title MSJ has had since then and breaking about an 8 year streak with out a conference title. Tyler Hooperton who was a senior my Freshman year has taken over a great program as head coach that Rod Huber built. Lions will give Franklin a run for their money Saturday! Fun fact John Pont former IU HC, who took the Hoosiers to their only Rose Bowl in 69 came out of retirement to start the program in the early 90s!
  4. Avon Middle School South is looking for a game for 2019 season to be played on Thursday 9/12/19 for both 7th and 8th grade (this would be our A team but we are not opposed to playing a B team). We would also be willing to play on Wednesday 9/11/19 or Saturday 9/14/19. If your program is interested please email Evan Jaynes 7th grade Head coach at ecjaynes@avon-schools.org so I can put you in contact with our athletic coordinator. Thanks.
  5. Per Kyle Neddenriep not surprising Trevor Lawrence is the real deal, where will Mr. Johnson land?
  6. For those programs that allow 6th graders to play on the 7th grade team how much of an impact do they have on your team? I know the jump from 6th to 7th is not as great as the jump from 7th to 8th BUT I often go watch both the 6th grade Jr Orioles that compete in Indiana Elementary Football League (basically a MIC and HCC combined league) and then the AJAA 6th All-Star team and usually I think maybe 1 or 2 guys would actually contribute to our 7th grade team as 6th graders..... seems it would be more beneficial from a development standpoint for those kids to play 6th grade youth league.

    I could see that as well the name Hardway alone seems to be attracting top tier talent already will be interesting to see if they can build a program . I think Hurst has always been a bit of a stretch, and I think Stewart was a possibility but it just got a lot harder with UK throwing their hat in the ring late. Hope so but you never know he's been pretty emphatic that he's not a lock but then again the media gets less interested when you are or at least these kids think so more attention around undecided (i.e Romeo Langford) at least he doesn't want to draw it out for 6-7 more months. As long as IU doesn't collapse in on itself over the first 1-3 months of the season I think we get a Nov-Jan commitment from TJD.

    I agree but Franklin is just adding depth at Guard for IU, (Green, Durham, and Phinese will all still be around) whereas Newman will have to try and fill Edwards shoes, I think it will also be good for Purdue that he stays closer to West Lay all season by staying at Valpo his senior year, even thought he circumstances that forced him to stay are disappointing. I also believe Izzo will snatch Keion Brooks Jr like he's proven he can do over the years, also its tough to compete for the national prospects consistently with so many wide reaching programs like Duke, UK, and UNC. Also as much as I would love to see Watford continue the pipeline I believe he will stay home and play for Bama especially after seeing that Sexton was able to succeed their. I believe IU's focus for the next few months is and has been Jackson-Davis. I know its not a lock but if Archie does what he did with Romeo its hard to see him going else where but I could be wrong. With a projected class size of only 3-4 I would say Franklin, Jackson-Davis, plus just about anyone else would make Hoosier fans very pleased!

    Figured I would pick this forum up instead of starting a new. Hoosiers add the first member of the 2019 recruiting cycle by napping Aarman Franklin out of non other than Indianapolis Cathedral. Archie continues to live up to his promise of recruiting the state looking to add other Indy talent (Brooks Jr, Jackson-Davis, Newman). He is also keeping a reach nationally with targeting Isaiah Steward Jahmius Ramsey and Trendon Waterford. However no matter how successful right now on the recruiting front unfortunately for Archie he is already in the eyes of many in an important year in Bloomington. I think he needs to finish in the top half of the conference and certainly needs to beat all at home mid-majors! With the arrival of Romeo IMO only increased expectations looking at the schedule and with what the Hoosiers have returning it looks like outside of @ Duke and @ Louisville and vs Butler possible @ Arkansas the non-conference schedule should be smooth sailing. At the end of the day a return to the NCAA Tourney in March I think will keep Archie in the good graces of IU Bball fans Only time will tell a month out for Hoosier Hysteria in the meantime enjoy Football!!!!
  13. I'm inclined to agree having played in that offense I can tell you the rain doesn't benefit as much as you think it would. The ball fakes and the flow of the belly lends itself to potential mishaps on the exchanges if the ball is wet. Obviously the belly is better than a spread throwing the ball offense in the rain but a key for both teams in definitely taking care of the ball a little bit better. another example from 2009 beat South Put 34-0 in the regular season 3 weeks later in the mud and rain second round of sectionals took a 6-3 victory in OT.

    Ben Davis at Avon

    a huge collection of D-1 talent on the field lead on offense for both squads Sampson James (Ohio State) and Delbert Mimms III (Vandy). This is going to be a great game that might very well come down to the last play should be fun can't wait to watch best of luck to both teams! Go O's
  18. Things weren't going well at Mooersville from the get go (some pressure to continue the type success Coach Bless had and the success he built quickly at Monrovia).....I don't think there is bad blood a natural little rivalry but honestly kids from both school are friends and spend a lot of time outside of school together , I think it was just a timing thing really and he realized that his brand of football was just embraced more at Monrovia? Totally speculative though think it just made more sense Fingers crossed I would gladly step away from Avon for a Friday right County Clash at Gordon Hadley Field !
  19. Now if we can just convince the Pioneers to play County school Monrovia all would be good in Morgan County! Seriously though could you imagine a gate for Monrovia vs Mooresville game!!!

  21. wow thats pretty cool any idea whats #1?............ just curious
  22. I think the conferences should make this an actual thing, its always fun to watch these two (especially the last handful of years as the HCC becomes better and better in football) it would be nice to see a few more head to head match-ups and you could have a rotating schedule every year. never the less the MIC currently leads 2-1 after week 1 HSE def LC 21-20 in LOS Pike def Zionsville 27-19 (In a close game where Zionsville had a TD called back) NC def Fishers 31-7 This weeks match-ups are: BD vs Avon HSE vs NC Carmel vs Noblesville Pike vs Fishers Westfield , Brownsburg, and Franklin Central are the HCC school that do NOT play a MIC School. CG, LN and abd WC are the MIC schools that do NOT play a HCC School.

    New Turf In 2018

    Cadets get new Turf Field. I believe that makes the Tri-West Bruins the only Hendricks Co school without it. (Avon , Plainfield, Brownsburg, Danville and Now Cascade) All with Turf.

    It was a cool moment for two of the Bless Brothers to coach against each other a little ....... but ultimately I think this is going to be better for both Avon and Bloomington North
