  1. In his 3rd year as assistant principal. Has not been coaching at Mt. Vernon during that time.
  2. That loss was brutal, I agree. I'm still not sure how NV won that game. During Crabtree's tenure, they have certainly pulled out a lot of close games. They find a way to win. Was impressed with how much poise they displayed in the last drive. In particular, #11 Ellis was nails on the last drive. NV has gritty kids. Even though it was satisfying to see Rockville & Coach Moore get beat, I did feel bad for the PH kids. They played a great game. The way it happened would be hard to digest. Losses like that leave a mark. PH kids were valiant throughout and had a great season. They will be back again next year. As for this week, NV will have their work cut out for them. They will be a decided underdog. However, they've been in that position before with Lutheran.
  3. So often the sequel does not live up to the first meeting between teams. Each game is different, yielding different results. With that being said, it's hard to envision either one of these teams blowing the other out. Most expect it to be nip & tuck throughout. This game will be decided by one factor and one factor only- Can Parke Heritage manage NV's run game? Everything else is secondary. At some point, in order to win high school football games at this level, you have to be able to run the ball and defend the run. If they can slow the NV run game down, they have a great chance. How many points their offense can score is insignificant if they are unable to do that. As always, you hope injuries do not swing the game one way or another. Since I'm a contrarian by nature, I predict something will happen to make the sequel not as interesting as the first meeting. Since everyone is expecting a ton of points and a close game, I'll go the opposite direction Falcons 28-14 **Sorry for partial repeat of my post.

  5. I like that.....you have it covered either way. Bold. North Vermillion's best defense will be their offense. Get first downs, and slow the game down. Two contrasting styles here, really. It is suppose to be cold on Friday night, which probably doesn't help the passing game of PH. Final Thought 2 Thoughts 1.- NV hasn't been as sharp lately, and seems as though they have fell into a little bit of a lull. And, that could be because they have been favored to win. Friday will be a different story. They will have to be much sharper Friday to beat PH. 2. In my opinion, situations like this is when NV has been most impressive during Crabtree's tenure. They find a way to game plan opposing teams even though they might have less talent. PH will have more athleticism on the field. Will the NV staff be able to do it again? NV kids know how to win, and seem to rise to the occasion. Can they do it again on Friday?
  6. If I remember correctly, last year's game wasn't really that close. However, this is a different year. Will go 34-6 Mater Dei. Once again, would love to see Linton win and be wrong about this outcome.
  7. Mater Dei big, unfortunately. Will be impressed if Linton can make it a game. Hope my prediction is wrong.
  8. It should be mentioned that NV played PH without their best CB in L. Cook who was out with injury. They were also missing G. Dice one of their better OL/DL. Having their services next time can’t hurt. What makes NV hard to beat is they adapt on a weekly basis based on what the other team is or is not doing. They do it better than anyone else in the WRC, even in years when they haven’t had the best talent. NV QB Ellis has proven himself of being more than a capable passer. If you slow down the run, they can still beat you that way. Throwing the ball allowed them to stay in the game against Linton. Hopefully all teams can stay healthy, and may the best team win.
  9. The Fighting Chuck Sorrell's. It will take talent but also discipline to beat NV. South Putnam doesn't play NV very much, and I think that is even more of an advantage for NV. That is, if they beat Covington. Good news for PH is that they essentially get a week off, and NV does not. I would think Attica & South Putnam would be a good comparison, in that they are probably similar in caliber. Many times these games can be won by the team that remains healthy. Good question on how physical South Putnam will be, and if that might impact the following week. Assuming everything plays out as it should.
  10. Correct. That's because they didn't even attempt to tackle the fullback on veer for the entire 1st quarter.....and some of the 2nd quarter as well.
  11. GS had no clue how to stop HH in the first meeting. The good news is if they can learn how to play with some defensive integrity in the next meeting, they should be right there. Integrity meaning alignment, assignment, and understanding the importance of leverage when playing defense. Not sure why you would ever plan man coverage against a team like HH who rarely throws the ball. Totally pointless to do so out of their base sets. A poor defensive performance. The positive side is that Gibson did attempt to get back into the game in the 2nd half, and was able to move the ball against a stout HH defense. GIbson will be able to move the ball in the rematch. Offense will not be the problem. The question is...... will they have some clue how to defend veer, midlne, and a couple counter actions HH runs? They have the talent to beat HH. Will the defensive staff have them in position to do so?
  12. I hope I'm wrong, but I think Mater Dei is a bad match up for Linton. Would love to see Linton win the sectional. North Posey does not pose a problem.
  13. This just in......South Vermillion is terrible.
