  1. Michigan City High School student l body was given a list of nicknames to vote on when Elston and Rogers consolidated and Wolves was selected. I thought they should have become the Cohos as for decades Michigan City has been renounced as the Coho fishing capitol of the Midwest.
  2. Whiting has hired former East Chicago head coach Mark Hildalgo as their new field general. He was most recently coach wrestling and was a football assistant at River Forest. Many recall he was an assistant on Craig Buzea's staff at Portage in 2006.
  3. Just heard LP school board member Jim Arnold on the radio yesterday morning. He said that they held an executive session on Monday to discuss the matter an La Porte will have a new football coach after their next school board meeting on Monday.
  4. There is now a Facebook page:. Support coach James as the next football coach at LPHS. https://m.facebook.com/groups/1215952405842295/
  5. 96-7 The Eagle radio station is giving away these posters from 10AM to 5PM today. I am going to get one and have Bob James sign it for me.
  6. What a cakewalk for Merrillvile in class 5A sectional 9 and Crown Point in 6A sectional 1.
  7. When is the IHSAA going to announce the sectional assignments? They usually have them out by April.
  8. Buzea is a master recruiter and Dave Ortiz has three middle school aged sons. I think that is why he wanted him to come and rejoin him on his staff at Crown Point. When Buzea left Portage for Michigan City the program was on probation from the IHSAA for recruiting players from East Chicago.
  9. Valpo is not in La Porte's sectional anymore.
  10. David Ortiz was a senior wide receiver on Portage's 1994 5A state runner up team. Nick Wellman was his quarterback. Ortiz led the state in receiving the that year. Was also a great baseball player. Had a great college career at the former St. Joesph college. Was a member of Buzea's and Mike Karpinski's staff at Michigan City before moving on to La Porte. Very well liked guy among all the players he coaches.
  11. Per Michiana Football After one season La Porte Head coach David Ortiz has resigned to join Craig Buzea's staff at Crown Point Slicers will be looking for the 4th head coach in 5 seasons.
  12. He has not graduated yet. He was supposed to graduate in December. The way style between the style of offense Grand Valley runs, the weakness of the schedule and the overall weakness of the conference that Grand Valley plays in he just does not get enough carries to showcase his talents. Most of of his games are halftime blowouts leaving him standing in the sidelines in the 2nd half watching the sophomores and redshirt freshmen play.
  13. Going into last season Buck was named as one of the top Division II running backs in the nation. He was was limited with the number of carries on 2021 due to the running back by committee style of offense that Grand Valley State runs. He will have to transfer to another D2 or D3 program because if he goes to a D1 program he will have to sit out another year. He would really like to transfer the University of Georgia. Aryuan Cain-Veasey and Bulldogs CB Kelee Ringo are cousins.
  14. Just wanted to pass along that RB Aryuan Cain-Veasey (Michigan City '17) has decided to transfer from Grand Valley State for his senior year of college football.
  15. So you are telling me that D1 recruiters cannot attend high school camps, combined and 7 on 7s but their campus can host tournament games?
