  1. Whiting has been attending this event since the beginning and it's extremely well-ran and organized. Our guys and coaches have a blast and we've made some friendships along the way. Highly recommend it.
  2. Whiting has Mishawaka Marian Week 2 next year. Then starting in 2021 we will have Highland Week 2.
  3. BG is physical and have three athletes in the backfield you need to stop. Everyone knows about Vann but #3 QB Mayersky is a tremendous runner, quick and elusive and adds an element to their offense that's difficult to stop. Then there is the mountain of a man, FB #41 Eriks. He is physical, blocks well, and runs the ball pretty well on a counter. I don't think people is giving BG enough credit but clearly I'm biased. I kinda wish I was heading to this game since no one is streaming it online but it is what it is. BG has improved in Coach K's three years there, he's done a great job. Hope the place is packed tonight.
  4. The ball leaves the blocking zone so fast I don't ever see how the block can be legal. The ball is in the holders hands by the time the block occurs making it illegal by your definition. I didn't think it was legal regardless but I learned something. Thank you.
  5. Can an offensive lineman block below the waist on a PAT? When I asked about it I was told it was a scrimmage play and that it is legal. Is this correct? Anyone?
  6. Met Coach Goebel this year on our excursion down to EMD, class act. In fact, we still email each other every now and then.
  7. Whiting HS and Clark HS are bitter rivals are play in a game called the Battle of 119th St, the street the two schools sit on literally a half mile apart. The rivalry entered its 86th year this year making it the second longest continuous rivalry in the state. Whiting has won the last 8 games and lead the all time series by a couple of games. Below is a picture of the trophy a student at Whiting created. The boundary for the two schools go north and south between our two communities and every year we have a BBQ a couple of days before the game. Pretty neat affair. Another trophy game I'm starting is between Whiting and Hanover Central. This summer we had a kid who needed a 2X helmet but we ran out so I borrowed one from HC whose head coach is a friend of mine. I told him I'm not giving back his helmet unless he beats us. 😆
  8. I appreciate that. While the overall reason we played the game because we literally couldn't find anyone else in four states that was a good fit to play a game with besides EMD, there were obviously other factors we considered. in spite the thrashing we took, the kids loved the experience including the traveling. I'd consider something like this every other year or so. Next year we have a one year contract with Mishawaka Marian Week 2 at our place. It's official but we haven't put it out there... until now!
  9. We're lucky to have him here in Indiana. The IHSAA should contract out to him and throw him some money for his work. Either way what a tremendous resource for coaches, players, fans and the media.
  10. Our fans enjoy beverages... I will relay the info! Thank you.
  11. We are driving. We've been struggling to find an opponent because a team in our conference has refused to play a varsity schedule the last 3 years. We've looked at Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin and EMD was the best fit. 5.5 hours is long but we're going to make the best of it. We're excited to play in the Reitz Bowl against a great opponent. The alternative, a bye week, isn't in our best interest.
  12. You've never met the locals... we try changing the mascot and all hell will break loose. You're trying to get me fired!
  13. We at Whiting do have a large oil refinery but that is not the source of our mascot. Our mascot actually came from the railroad. Railroad tracks surround Whiting and apparently large dudes called "Oilers" used to oil up the wheels of trains as they were stopped in Whiting. That's why our mascot is an oil can. The more you know... 😄
