  1. I got the honor of coaching in this game. A lot of folks did not expect us (South) to win. The facts are on Friday July 9th 2021 the South was the better team. Up front it took one possession to see that the South players came into the week in very good physical shape. Additionally as a coaching staff, we had the South kids ready to play. I cannot speak for the North, but we as a staff felt we had a solid game plan for selection of our team, position selection of those who made the team, offensive and defensive install, and subbing/personnel rotations during the game. The North had won the game several years in a row. Our goal was to win the game. Our kids made some great plays and a number of those were not from MIC schools (Centerville, South Dearborn, Bloomington South). AND a late replacement from 1A Covenant Christian was named MVP. I think it is a good format. The South Team won this year.
  2. In my opinion you get a great view from up top. If you are an OC the top view helps with game day alignments, coverages and depths of the 2nd level players. You can also find the game day "human tendency" Meaning my Jimmy is better than your Joe, so run the ball here or throw the ball there. Or a certain player over runs the flow of the run or jumps a given pass route, Thus you can make your adjustments accordingly to capitalize on these areas. As a DC it helps to know offensive formations, depths, and alignments. I will give our up top coach a list or I will verbalize what to look for and to let me know how the offense flows and their sub patterns or packages they are utilizing on 1st and 3rd downs. And it also helps when we have a weakness on defense and need to make a change due to a player being overmatched physically or dare I say due to lack of effort. So to reinstate my opinion... Up Top Is Good
  3. Half the schools in Indiana get to play 10 games in a year. Then 1/2 of the remaining half get to play a 12th game. In other words 75 percent of the teams are done by week 11. This is not very many times to learn how to compete. Football Coaches are generally the ones that want to share athletes. We want competitors. We want to develop scholar athletes in as many sports as possible. As a parent, I want my kids to "Honor Their Talent." Meaning if they are blessed with the skills and the abilities they should play multiple sports. It may not be their favorite sport, but they should still play to help their school, their friends/classmates, and their community to field a competitive team. Meaning if I am a D-1 or D-2 QB for example and I can throw a baseball 85 plus, I should be playing baseball as well. If I have decent speed, I should help the track team as well. Some kids will specialize but I am truly not a fan.. Ironically as a football coach I do not want my kids around me all year long. You have to be multi skilled in the job market Why not the athletic field.

  5. I called about this camp and never got a call back. Anyone help me out on who to contact about this camo? Thanks!
  6. Columbus East- The powers that be back in the beginning liked the Cleveland Browns and USC Trojans. Hence the brown and orange uniforms. The school song is the USC tune . The school began in an Olympic year so they are called the Olympians.
  7. I believe that nominations were due this past Friday. Things may be behind schedule due to COVID. A lot of meetings are being conducted on how to have meetings if that makes sense. Hopefully the All-State process can be completed promptly.
