  1. Bingo. This is precisely why I am leaving my current position at Whiting HS. I teach 3 middle school computer science classes (6th, 7th, and 8th). Then in the high school I teach an AP Computer Science class, a dual credit PLTW engineering class, and 2 robotics classes. I do not have a prep. With this work load I cannot be visible in the building. I tried to get my schedule to be more "coach friendly" but it wasn't feasible. So I finally had to make a change. Whiting is my alma mater and I've been coaching here for 20 years but something had to give. Tough decision but it's the correct one.
  2. We always bring plenty of balls, towels, etc. Initially I was told only 4 footballs and could check more at half. I knew something didn't add up.
  3. Is there a limit as to how many footballs I can have checked before a contest? Also, can I check more footballs at halftime? Thank you.
  4. Appreciate the detailed response.
  5. Question: What sort of protection does a punter have on a quick kick situation if he is in shotgun (5 yards from the center), receives the snap and punts it. Is he treated like a punter and receives the protection as such or can the defense rush him and hit as he kicks.
  6. Gotcha. I do agree that we're not being told everything about the virus. But it's real, my buddy and his wife got it and he called it an "absolute Fn nightmare." Thanks for clarifying.
  7. Yup I remember. It was last year early spring/summer. Too much to go back through.
  8. Why the quotations around the word virus?
  9. Whiting we have it. We love it. Our Pop Warner loves it. Our fans love it. Visiting teams love it. Our maintenance dept. loves it. Our admin loves it. Our community loves it. Cons: everyone wants to use it. We had a semi-pro team play a few times on it last year who left the surrounding area around the stadium a disaster. That is all.
  10. Yes it is. Our entire district basically takes place on one square city block: elementary, middle and HS. The administration building has that green roof to the bottom of the football field and it houses preschool as well as the higher ups.
  11. Being the head coach, I was given last hour prep this year. Other than that, I teach a full load and split time between middle school and high school. In the middle school I teach business and computer science (6-8 grades). In the high school I teach AP Computer Science, PLTW Civil Engineering and Architecture, and PLTW Digital Electronics. It's a full day. I'd give my right arm for a lighter load, just for the sake of less classes to prep for. I've been asking for years but we're a small district and they cannot afford it.
  12. 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.
  13. Whiting has Mishawaka Marian Week 2 next year. Then starting in 2021 we will have Highland Week 2.
  14. 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.
