  1. I had no input as to who the next HFC would be at NHHS. Coach in question certainly has credentials and undoubtedly would do a great job wherever he goes, but I am happy to see a loyal and dedicated assistant get rewarded for 13 years of dedicated and passionate work at NHHS. Jimmy Linn is as good a person you will come across, and I wish him and the Bulldogs nothing but the best! Both of these men are going to mold players through the game of football. I have no doubt about that! Go 'Dogs! Coach Rowland
  2. Always found Ron to be a true professional and advocate of high school sports. He will be missed!
  3. The fact that Dwenger has bounced 4 of our best teams I've coached out of the playoffs in the last nine years proves that it would NOT be a lateral move football wise. However, the point is moot. I didn't just give lip service when I stepped down. I'm going to be coaching my 4th grade son and his friends for the next few years! In my eyes, that's not a lateral move either. I just want to hang out with my kids while they still want to!! As for Dwenger, I have a ton of respect for the Saints. Better men than me have done both, but I'm happy to step back and be more involved with my family. I'm young--plenty of time to coach on Fridays again if that's where the Lord leads me!
  4. Maybe New Haven had something to do with that. Game was even but special teams played its part. Take away the turnover on the punt and the questionable 3rd and 10 pass interference, and we may still be playing! Was a great game between two good football teams. I have nothing but respect for Coach S and the Dwenger football program. It's an honor to try to match wits with this program! We fell short this time around!
  5. Was one heck of a defensive ball game! Special teams was the difference. Hats off to Dwenger. Proud of our kids tonight, but we fell a bit short. Good luck the rest of the way, BD!
  6. Great Coach and an ever better man. Best of luck Coach!

    CIC Week 2

    I don't post often on here, but I just wanted to say that I was very impressed with the Indians tonight. Coach Funk had his team well prepared and his players never backed down. What a great game! I think both teams benefited by a playoff atmosphere tonight! Best of luck to Ole 'Miss the rest of the way. The CIC should take notice--this team has the "it" factor!

  8. Great one-day team camp. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested. With today's summer rules, it was the best opportunity to enjoy competition and get good team work together in one day!

    DeKalb Barons

    If I remember correctly, that game was a forfeit--can't remember why. Either way, as I said after we played DeKalb, I felt DeKalb would surprise some teams this year. They are well-coached, and the kids are believing. A competitive DeKalb team is good for the NHC!

    DeKalb Barons

    I was very impressed with Coach Kempf and the DeKalb players. DeKalb will surprise some teams this year! We were lucky to come out with a victory this week. Coach Rowland

    North South Game?

    I was on North staff. Petkovich was North's MVP as far as I know.

    North South Game?

    Petkovich was the North MVP. Defense actually played pretty well--they were put in bad spots all night. Unfortunately, the offense could not move the ball much at all and gave up a pick six early in the game.
  13. The BD staff informed us Ryan would not be able to play in the all-star game.

    Homestead Vs Snider

    We are better with the Harding players. I'm not sure what you two kids are arguing about, but this is a Homestead/Snider thread. Any team would be better with an influx of talent like we got from Harding. Argument over. Irishman, take your meds. Coach Rowland
  15. Great coach! Garrett is in very good hands! Best of luck, Chris!
