  1. It's been a great off season for the Rocks...... Maxes coming in. Probable starting line squat numbers are: 655, 600, 545, 545 and 475. We got some Beef!! Strength Coach Tavio Henson has done an Awesome Job!!!
  2. Westfield is not rebuilding.. last years junior class has been one of the best in Westfield history. They were undefeated in JV as Sophomores. Last years JV lost once.
  3. I am hearing Westfield, NC, Carmel , Zionsville are going to be together. Jeff going to region, Noblesville to Ft. Wayne and HSE/ Fishers go South.
  4. Anything in the MIC or HCC is a great 6a job. 1a Sheridan 2a Pioneer 3a: West Lafayette ,Western 4a: East Central 5a: Snider - Tech if anyone ever gets in there and is allowed to do it right.
  5. When I teach it to those kids, I don't over complicate it. I just teach: step, punch, RUN RUN RUN!! LOL.. Seems to work. Teach the block backwords : start them in a good run fit and practice the Run ( drive) part then work the step and punch work the step Then try the whole block...... You can work step punch on air as well. You will be amazed if you repeat the same drill several days in a row, how well they will eventually get it. Just teach the drive step and don't worry about which step to punch on at this age. just get them off the ball stepping, punching and RUNNING:)
  6. We never talk about low man winning, because that tends to encourage kids to have their heads down and lead with their heads. We talk about striking with a double upper cut, landing our hands first on a specific target and keeping our eyes below our hands. Some people like the 2 pt. stance, but you rarely see it amongst the best in college football. I would argue as well that the older and better an athlete gets, the easier it would be to get away with the two point stance. I just think most younger players like to play high already, and do tend to stand up too much and I have found the two point stance encourages that. Just my experience. If you can make it work for you, awesome. However, against the dudes we have to play, want to have strong and quick footwork out of our stance and like to strike our defenders on the rise. We use a balanced stance with little weight no the hand.
  7. I work a number of Youth Camps at our High School and Coordinate the O-line portion of the Bishop- Dullahan Youth camp and have not had much trouble teaching stance. USA football has a very easy method of teaching the stance. We use a few simple commands and it is done. I do agree that with kids below the 3rd grade level, it does tend to get more difficult though. I have played with the thought of going from a two point stance with my varsity guys, but it is my opinion that you lose your angles of leverage when coming from a two point stance in the run game. I also will say, that we never lead with the head. We lead with the hands and want our eyes below our hands.
  8. Dr. Rob Bell a local sports psychologist has written a book about how to deal with kids in today's ultra competive tavel, AAU and 7x7 world. It is called, "Don't Should on your KIds". I read it trying to figure out how to motivate a player, and came away with so much more. I'd highly suggest it for all sports parents and coaches.
  9. Westfiedl does the testing on athletes, drivers, and all extra-curricular students randomly.
  10. Who is New DC at Zionsville? Did they bring Spear back?
  11. Non Conference oppoments Westfield Non-Conf : Harrison and DC BBurg: Has BD and Cathedral? Fishers:NC and Pike HSE: NC and LC NHS: Cathedral and Carmel FC: DC and Roncali Zionsville: Pike and Lebanon
  12. Who comes out on top of the HCC in 2019. Zionsville has a new coach and Noblesville and HSE coaches in their 2nd year. Is Franklin Central better after getting their feet wet in year one? Brownsburg and Avon still extremely talented. Fishers always a tough out and Westfield trying to get to the top. Whats your predictions...... 1. BBurg 2. Avon 3. Zionsville 4. Fishers 5. Westfield 6. Noblesville 7. HSE 8. FC
