  1. The Left DE has been held ALL GAME by SA's OL and they finally called it.
  2. What a great story for Gage Coffey. I'm sure something will be written about him. But he was the starting TB last year for CC before Wilson moved on over to CC after Howe closed. He became the backup Running back and now he possibly has the game winning TD run for CC in the state championship game.
  3. South Decatur vs Oldenburg has been canceled due to a positive case at SD.
  4. I had the exact same question for your reason and ALSO because it's indoors. I could also make an argument that tennis should be in "low risk" as well.
  5. This following is the first paragraph in the document that was just created last week. It specifically says "Opening up" of high school athletics across the United States. I take that as meaning once we open up July 1st, will start with Phase 1.
  6. From my understanding, the phases proposed by the NFHS is a separate one for sports. I don't think it has anything to do with Indiana's plan.
  7. Here is a cliff notes version for those that don't want to read the whole thing. Remember, these are just guidelines and ideas for the states to abide. Preliminary Questions to ask state associations They start off asking 4 preliminary questions to state associations. The jist of those 4 questions are essentially: Are you willing to do sports if Public schools are closed? Will the state itself host a tournament if there is an outbreak in your state? Will your state only allow "lower risk" or "moderate risk" sports as suggested by the article? (Will get to this later.) Points of Emphasis Strongly recommend following CDC guidelines with face cloth coverings (doesn't have to be medical grade.) in Phases 1 and 2 of their plan (Will address below). Swimming, distance running are excluded from this. Schools must be prepared for periodic school closures. Scheduling contests with less travel should be considered. "Vulnerable individuals" are those defined as 65 and older and others with underlying health conditions.(Will address later) Phases of Reopening (Understand, each state will vary but this is what they recommend) Phase 1 Pre Workout Screen: All coaches/players should be screened for symptoms prior to workout. Responses to be recorded. "Vulnerable individuals" should not participate in Phase 1 Limitations on Gatherings: No more than 10 people at a time (inside or outside) No Locker room use. Workouts should be conducted of pods of up to 10, but the same 5-10 groups. Smaller pods for weight training (Doesn't give a number) Minimum distance of at least 6 feet at ALL times. Facilities Cleaning Pretty much your standard stuff. Sanitize each and everything that was used. Students encouraged to shower immediately upon returning home. Physical Activity and Athletic Equipment No sharing of towels or equipment. Resistance training is emphasized as body weight and sub maximal lifts. Examples: Football players shall not do anything that requires the passing or handing off of football. No sharing of tackling dummies, etc. Hydration: Players are to bring their own water bottles. Nothing is shared Phase 2 Pre Workout Screen: "Vulnerable individuals" should still not oversee or participate in Phase 2 Limitations on Gatherings: No more than 10 people INSIDE. Up to 50 allowed OUTSIDE. If locker rooms used, social distance of 6 feet required. Workouts should be conducted of pods of up to 10, but the same 5-10 groups. Smaller pods for weight training (Doesn't give a number) Minimum distance of at least 6 feet at ALL times. Facilities Cleaning Pretty much your standard stuff. Sanitize each and everything that was used. Students encouraged to shower immediately upon returning home. Physical Activity and Athletic Equipment "LOWER RISK" practices and competition may resume. (Track, swimming, golf, CC, etc) "MODERATE RISK" Basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer, etc (Modified practices may begin) "HIGH RISK"Wrestling/Football: Nothing stated Hydration: Players are to bring their own water bottles. Nothing is shared Phase 3 Pre Workout Screen: All coaches/players should be screened for symptoms prior to workout. Responses to be recorded. "Vulnerable individuals" can begin to participate but with social distancing guidelines in place. Limitations on Gatherings: Gatherings of UP TO 50 people allowed INSIDE and OUT. Facilities Cleaning Pretty much your standard stuff. Sanitize each and everything that was used. Students encouraged to shower immediately upon returning home. Physical Activity and Athletic Equipment "MODERATE RISK" sports and competition may resume. "modified" practices for "HIGH RISK" sports can begin (Use epidemiology data to determine when your state may resume practice) Tiers of People Allowed into Events: Tier 1 (Essential personnel): Athletes, officials, coaches, event staff, medical staff, security Tier 2 (Media) Tier 3: Fans, vendors Thought I'd copy and paste this because it's important for football.
  8. I think the bigger issue is this: If schools only let students go back to school 2-3 days a week, how can a Superintendent justify going to practice 5 days a week? Here's an even better question: What about busing? No way they allow kids, or very many, to ride buses. Transportation is going to be a nightmare. The more questions you ask, the more questions that appear.
  9. Let's say we have some semblance of a football season. Do you foresee us having an even larger shortage of officials due to many being considered 'high-risk' of the virus?
  10. It will be interesting to see how the IHSAA handles all of this. I'm sure most of it will be determined by the DOE and Governor. The biggest question is: Will schools even be allowed to be 'open' during the summer for sports. 2nd thing, Even if they are allowed to open, it takes until Phase 3 before "GYMS" do NOT have to adhere to STRICT physical distancing. I would think high school weight rooms will have to adhere to gym rules. It's going to be very hard to police. I'm sure some schools won't being adhering to the use of the word "STRICT" if weight rooms are allowed open but I just don't know how the IHSAA or other state organizations are going to handle this. 3rd, On top of all this, how many coaches will stop coaching even if we're allowed to restart?
  11. I'd like us to go to a 10 WEEK (Not games) regular season and throwing out the Scrimmage. With as much practice time we have in the Summer w/ 11v11 and 7v7, we could do this. 1) We'd still start the season on the same Monday we always do. 2) Each team gets 1 bye week. 3) Allow teams to play on Thursdays. (We could still do this even without the bye.) 4) Coaching Burnout: Season is still same amount of time, but you give coaching staffs 1 week "off" during season to rest
  12. IMO, basketball coaches are the worst at this. But yes, I agree with you.
  13. Mike Dum a former LB for Chatard? His number used to be a single digit number like #5 or something. His name sounds familiar from when I coached against him when I was at Batesville. I think the other inside linebacker was also a single number guy. I don't know why I remember this.
