  1. The La Porte Community School Corporation would never be able to afford your consulting fee.
  2. We all went to the IU - Ball State game last week, I am the white guy in the back corner making my presence known. Last season Markice played at Notre Dame stadium, last week he played at Lucas Oil stadium. No other athlete from Michigan City, Indiana can claim that.
  3. They have a very large extended athletic family.
  4. That is how it was explained when I listened to the Region Kickoff show a few weeks ago.
  5. La Porte had a search committee to replace Dave Sharpe. The position was first offered to Bob James who turned it down. Then the committee consulted with Paul Condry and asked him for a list of 5 coaches they should reach out to and Jeremy Lowery was at the top of the list.
  6. Markice Hurt Jr. and Marquan Hurt are brothers. They are also Aryuan “Buck” Cain-Veasey’s cousin who absolutely lit it up Saturday in his game for Grand Valley State University on Saturday rushing for 200 yards on 11 carries and scored 3 touchdowns including the 3rd longest run in school history from 94 yards. He was named the Great Lakes Intercolligiate Conference (GLIAC) player of the week. https://www.facebook.com/100000466601769/posts/3598591256833059/
  7. Article in The Times about the potential relocation of the Andrean High School campus to I-65 and US 231 in Crown Point. https://www.nwitimes.com/business/healthcare/new-hospital-possible-andrean-move-to-crown-point-part-of/article_f67a48e3-59fd-543a-9132-bf31aee8295b.html
  8. The Times had a great feature story about coach Radtke few years back. They went back to his family farm where he grew up in North Judson. I guess Radtke still owns a collection of antique and vintage farm tractors.
  9. Since taking over at New Prairie, Russ Radtke has compiled a 70-18 record (.795 winning) percentage and is only 8 wins away of becoming the #2 winningest coach in state history. I saw an interview a couple years ago with Bud Wright and he was asked that over the last 50 years hasn’t times and kids changed and he responded of course they have but you have to be able to adapt to those changes and that also applies to Russ Radtke. Honorable mention goes to Craig Buzea from Homewood-Floosmoor on getting his first career win over Penn. Buzea went 0-5 against the Kingsmen during his tenure at Portage and those games were classics.
  10. It was only a matter of time. Brian Urlacher will be on hand at Blue Chip here in Michigan City for the ribbon cutting and place the first bet at the new Fan Duel Sports Book. Bears are +3 point favorites with an Under/Over of 46.5 against the Packers tonight. With a +140 straight bet payout for the Packers and a - 160 for the Bears.
  11. Army and Washington State according to Rivals.com. Opened the scoring with a FG from 46 after MC was intercepted on the first play from scrimmage and booted the game winner from 51. All his KOs five yards out of the back of the EZ each time making MC go 80 yards all the return man could do is stand at the goal line and watch the ball sail over his head.
  12. Check out Warsaw High School senior kicker Harrison Mevis. #2 ranked high school kicker in he nation. This kid will be playing on Sunday’s in about 5 years.
  13. Warsaw is going to have a great year in the NLC. Bart Curtis has really turned things around for the Tigers.
  14. Warsaw's kicker Harrison Mevis was amazing tonight. Booted FG's from 46 and the game winner from 51 and put all his kickoffs 5 yards out of the back of the EZ every time. Definitly a D1 caliber talent. Great game for both teams.
  15. Last 2 seasons MC got their sectional championship wins over La Porte. This season it will even get better as the Wolves have the potential of getting sectional wins over La Porte and Valpo. That would be sweet.
  16. Michigan City was up on Griffith 41-0 the end of the first quarter. Both coaches agreed to start a running clock. Last year of the contract between City and Griffith. I would like to add the Michigan City Wolves Wolfpack marching band performed a stunning halftime rendition of one of the greatest compositions of American music of all time. Rhapsody In Blue by George Gershwin.
  17. After a two year hiatus from the sideline former Andrean and Lake Central 2004 3A state champion head coach Brett St. Germain will join coach Phil Mason's staff at Michigan City. He has also taken an assistant principal position at the school. Very impressed how coach Mason has been able to hand pick and attract several successful former head coaches and athletic directors from other such as St. Germain, Roy Richards, Ken Bye and John Maurek to Michigan City and also the school administration for hiring them. https://www.thenewsdispatch.com/sports/article_51f1e435-8e9e-511f-8496-604a7baeff95.html
  18. http://laportecounty.life/article/michigan-city-high-school-football-players-rush-for-yards-outside-the-field/?fbclid=IwAR2C3eqU4QpN50pikMjLgkC4Q5AsFmy2is65iW3Rbfy3ibRPCkwq039texs Awesome project being done by coach Phil Mason, his staff and the players and parents at Michigan City High School.
  19. Should be interesting what 6A north will be in the coming years once the Hammond schools ever consolidate.
  20. Easton grad Mike Hackett did not apply for the recently filled Michigan City High School boys basketball head coach position because I was told he makes 6 figures at Munster and did not want to take a pay cut.
  21. According the Jim Peters from the Michigan City News Dispatch Twitter page. Former Portage and LaPorte head the MCAS coach Tom Wells is expected to be named the new Michigan City Wolves varsity boys basketball coach. Another great hire by the Michigan City Area Schools.
  22. Michigan City has been doing this since coach Mason and coach Richards took over, It is a great event. I always like going and just visiting, chatting and hanging out with the parents and family members of the players.
  23. Since Lake Central reconstructed their facility 5 years ago all 8 member schools of the Duneland Conference has made the tradition from natural grass to artificial surface.
