  1. So many variables on this one to sort out for me. It depends on the parent, the kid, and the situation. Most youth teams are going to have dads & step dads coaching. A few middle schools and high schools as well. Luckily, I have saw more positives than negatives in that regard. Most negatives don't focus on the child, but the team just losing in general. I've coached with dad's in our youth league and they've been able to not cross the line and do a great job. I was coached in youth baseball by my dad, and didn't enjoy it. He would come down hard on me for anything, but we had an awfu
  2. I think it's going to depend on what style of offense they run, as to how the game will go. Curious to see how AC looks vs Bluffton. Hopefully like the last how many years, but hard to say.
  3. What should we expect to see? Know nothing about them other than where they're from and what you've provided.
  4. Guessing state line traveling was frowned upon as Covington OH also had an opening.
  5. I've not heard anything yet about a game this week. The radio last Wednesday hinted at a home game, but not announcement has been made to my knowledge. My guess is it will be a bye week at this point.
  6. Not sure if he's out for the year or what the status is. The game turned once he went down. AC had started to run and control the game. Once he went out the offense stalled and basically was just giving the ball to Heyerly. It went very conservatively as if the Jets shut it down completely to fight another day. I do think SA would win a rematch this time if it occurs due to the weapons they have. However, they probably will be ranked #1, but neither SA or AC played well enough to be a top 3 team this past Friday. Some would say officiating, but SA had way too many penalties and undisciplined f
  7. Final in Berne: South Adams 29 Adams Central 9. South Adams is in the driver seat and most likely wrapped up the ACAC conference crown in a very down ACAC.
  8. South Adams makes another stop and puts another drive to lead Adams Central 29 to 9. The AC offense has stalled after losing Currie in the 2nd quarter.
  9. South Adams takes advantage of the Jets stalling and blocking the punt. They take it down the field and score and did have a 2pt conversion that was called back. Elect to kick and lead 22 to 9.
  10. South Adams scores to end the half & gets the 2pt conversion to lead Adams Central 15 to 9 in the Rural Rumble. It looks like we will have a barn burner in Berne.
  11. Wonder how much of the MS numbers are because he moved from their and varsity assistant to varsity head coach? For the youth league, it appears the numbers have improved each year for Bellmont. The first year or two was pulling teeth to get enough teams (2 for Bellmont) for our league on their side, while little AC had probably 95% of the boys in each grade coming out. Also noticed more parents willing to help out as well from Bellmont in the latter few years. It's going to take awhile, but I think he will bring a change of culture that was much needed. Not to stray too far off topic, but the
  12. Was he able to get Trent, Billy, and Joel to name a few, to come back and help?
  13. From the one game I've saw, I think Coach Hall is on the right track. They hung tough with Norwell for the 1st half until the conditioning kicked in. I was really impressed by that effort compared to the last few years. I hope our youth league will start turning out more studs for Bellmont like we have for AC. It'd be nice to have all 3 schools in different classes like it was for awhile. Could you imagine if that were the case and all 3 made it to LOS the same year?
  14. Blood is thicker than water. It won't feel right, but I have to do it until my son is playing for the Jets (if he does). My step son will have to play across the line due to his parents' shared custody agreement before I met my wife. Will be hard to support his Crestview Knights, and will be just as hard to support my other cousin's kids being Parkway Panthers. We have the state line covered as both of the cousin's I mentioned are Bellmont grads. I grew up on the state line with my mail box being in Crestview district but the house in AC district. Less than 3 miles north is the Bellmont/AC bor
  15. Yes, I thought losing Stutzman was the biggest reason. Like you said, instead of two vertical threats it was one, thus allowing more attention to Miller. Although, I think Cook's speed could help this year. The biggest impact will be the AC defensive end position as no one has matched Voirol's output. Collier has shut down his side of the line, but the youth hasn't on the other. This is the make it or break it year for South Adams in my opinion. AC has some good juniors and freshmen, but I'm curious to see when this years freshmen class becomes juniors & seniors. They have some talent and
  16. After the regional game last year, that turned out to be the biggest set up of all time. They gave SA a 10 to 15 yd cushion to pick them apart in the regular season and put up that score. I don't think they'll play that soft this time, but I don't think they will stop SA's pass offense either. I could see 35-21 Starfires or even 28-14 Starfires depending on special teams play as well. If SA has their way though, they'll try putting 70+ on the board.
  17. I know the local news stations in Ft Wayne will have this as their game of the week. Being a proud Flying Jets fan/alum, I have a feeling the Starfires get a repeat of last year's regular season game. Maybe not as wide of margin as last time, but South Adams will be out for blood. I think South Adams offense will be too much for the Adams Central defense to handle in the end. I'd like to see AC's defense hold South Adams like Monroe Central did in the first half last week. I do think AC will be more potent on offense this year compared to last year's regular season match up. It does appear tha
  18. Depends on how you're breaking the state down if they're NE Indiana or EC Indiana. This is coming from someone who is near the edge of NE/EC Indiana separation area. The IHSAA regionals for football would consider most of them NE but HS basketball (girls especially) have them in the South for tournament (Winchester vs Central Noble).
  19. Don't fret it. My NE8 picks this week make me look terrible. EN losing to Leo and then Norwell took it to New Haven. Plus CC had to escape DeKalb. Some teams came to play and others didn't. It happens to all of us. Just tells me that NE Indiana shouldn't look for a 4A champion this year at this point. Looks like Mooresville will be the team to beat in that class. Dwenger vs Carroll should be a good one but they're high school kids and the routine has changed so it's a crapshoot.
  20. Bellmont at Huntington North-Huntington North ends up by 21+; Braves will stay close for a quarter maybe 2 and then the 2nd half slips away from them like last week. Columbia City at Dekalb- Columbia City pulls away as DeKalb just hasn't played as much East Noble at Leo- Taking East Noble in a close one if healthy enough. Think they'll be a little more battle tested if it is tight. New Haven at Norwell- I'm taking New Haven by 7 to 10. I've watched Norwell the past two weeks against inferior opponents and there are some weak areas on the defense. The offense just isn't consisten
  21. Might be a little hard if AC runs the play clock down on each snap and runs the ball non stop.
  22. Right now that is fair, but I think that is whom AC needs to strive to beat. I don't see a repeat of last years Regional outcome, but would like to see it be a rematch at least. Curious if Southwood is the same as 2017 or if they were like the last couple of years.
  23. 1. Carroll 2. Dwenger T3. Homestead T3. East Noble T5. North Side T5. Leo 7. New Haven (Pioneer win puts them ahead of SA & Eastside for now) 8. South Adams 9. Eastside (Week 6 SA vs AC could vault Blazers up, but think SA will have better victory over common opponent) 10. Coumbia City (Would have been nice to compare Bellmont result against SA & AC's cancelled games vs Bellmont) In the mix.. Northrop, Concordia, Snider, Norwell, Adams Central, Southwood, & Angola
  24. I guess I'm basing my top 10 different then the rest of you. I wasn't factoring head to head comparisons, but who will have the better season in their respective schedule. I'm only positioning based off class and schedule, giving the respect for the bigger classes as a tie-breaker so to speak.
