    Conference Indiana 2018

    BHSS will be pretty solid defensively. Offense is where all the questions are, starting with QB and OL in that order.

    Top 5 Coaches in Southern Indiana

    I can't speak to Keefer, although when you bring in players from places like Terre Haute it'll make you wonder, but my two older sons played basketball for South (one also played football). My youngest is a freshman playing JV/Varsity basketball there currently. I've been around the program for awhile and I don't know if I would call it "recruiting", but there has always been kids who choose to go to either school regardless of the district they live in as long as they enroll before their freshman year. I've seen North kids go to South and South kids go to North, and this is for basketball or football. Usually it's a choice because of the possibilities of playing time early. Johnny Jager lived in the North district but went to South for high school. At the same time North had three kids from Owen Valley and another from Edgewood in their program. Dee Davis went to North his freshman year but then ended up at South his sophomore year on. His family lived in the South district so he was able to do that and play immediately. Going even further back Sean May lived in the South district but went to North. North had a tremendous run with Tom Mckinney in the late 90s - early 2000s with all the talent that went through there and then South did after that. These things tend to be cyclical and it will be interesting to see what will happen when Holmes retires in the near future and with Speer (former Columbus North coach) just starting at Bloomington North. As to kids starting school a bit later or even repeating a grade, I've seen that happen all over the place in Indiana. It does tend to be more prevalent in larger communities and schools, but it happens everywhere. You can look at almost any basketball roster for any school and there will be a player or two who are 12-18 months older than others in their grade. I've never seen this a problem and since it is a choice by the parents for their child at the time I never viewed it as any of my business. It does seem to lend the kid an advantage in the ways you mentioned.

    Week 7 - Conference Indiana

    one quit the team, the other two were disciplinary. I believe one won't be back but the other will.

    It's not as minor as it could have been but not as major as it is. He's relieved to know that it won't have any impact on his future. Sucks that it happened during his senior year. Could be worse, like you mentioned about Sam Night. He started as a sophomore but didn't play again in high school because of those two ACL injuries.

    Conference Indiana Week 5

    Last year was an LCL for #60 in the knee he injured Friday night. MRI today showed a grade 2 partial tear to the MCL, a sprained PCL, a small fracture to the top of the tibia, and a partially torn meniscus. ACL was intact and not damaged. He'll have to have surgery for the meniscus. He'll recover fully and be back to full strength in 3-4 months. It could have been worse, the ortho surgeon said if he wasn't wearing his DonJoy brace his playing career would be over. Shouldn't effect his scholarship offer and commitment to Indiana State to play football. Saw the game film, the safety/OLB dove in to try to tackle the RB. Ended up sliding into his lower leg while at the same time the center hit lineman he was engaged with knocking him down in the opposite direction. His foot was caught under the player on the ground so the lower leg stayed where it was while the upper bent to the right. Wrong place, wrong time for that series of events.

    Not much could have prevented the injury when 500 lbs hits the side of your knee, and he was wearing a DonJoy brace which is what college and pro lineman wear. He was driving forward when it happened so his cleats were in the turf. Sam Night's injury last year was the same type. He took a hit on the side of his right knee when running and his right foot was planted in the ground.

    definitely an MCL (not sure if it's a sprain, partial tear, or tear yet), possible ACL as well. MRI on Monday.

    Conference Indiana Week 5

    Had two defensive lineman crash into the side of right knee, which was the same one he had the LCL repaired last year. DonJoy brace took the hit so hopefully it prevented serious damage, but there was too much swelling to diagnose tonight. Initial look indicates possible ACL, but could be MCL, sprain or tear to be determined. Gets seen in the morning and hope to know more then.

    Pechac may be back next week, but more likely week 7. Depends what x-rays/cat scan show. I would make sure to leave early if you are driving from north of Martinsville for the game. It is single lane both ways a little south of Martinsville for about 9 miles. Knowing Friday afternoon traffic in and out of Bloomington it would take awhile.

    I've heard that rumor, but also heard that it's not true from who I think are some people who would know. Coach Mo is building a new house on some land outside of Bloomington for what it's worth.

    Conference Indiana - Week 3

    James is Chris's cousin. Lots of Bombas running around so it's easy to get confused. South shot themselves in the foot repeatedly all night. Penalties, poor tackling, dropped passes, and some interesting play calling late doomed them. Franklin Central fought back to their credit, stuck with a decent running game, and won.

    Kris is out at least 3 more weeks. He is probably in a boot that long. Freak injury, defender landed on the back of his leg and pushed his foot completely straight. Bomba should play this Friday. Was going to play against Martinsville but tweaked his injury a little during practice earlier in the week. Feeling was they didn't need him this past Friday so decided to rest him. Maveric Thiery has proven to be a solid RB with Pechac out and South seemed to really let Yeskie be the playmaker last Friday. Putting him in space to decide if he wants to throw or run is dangerous. He's a very good athlete.
