James Banks, Chris Graham, (WC Linebacker played at Michigan) Jerimy Finch, Desmond Tardy,  Cameron McGrone, Blair Kiel

From the home team - Jeremy VanAlstyne (Michigan) and Jovan Swann (currently Stanford senior)

Good call on VanAlstyne, he was a beast.

Van Alstyne, Chris Dittoe at Dwenger, James Banks at BD, Randy Gregory at HSE, Bryant Fitzgerald at Avon, all special players I saw in person.

Jamaal Williams was a dominating RB for Merrillville. He ended up starting at Safefy for one of the best college defenses of all time, the '94 or '95 Nebraska team that annihilated Florida. I think one of the DL on that Nebraska D was from Lake Central.

Too young so I missed the Rod Woodson era in Fort Wayne.  Would have loved to see him play.  Assume he was a 2-way player, no?  I know he was also a nationally hurdler in track and field.

I saw Rod play numerous times. I think I recall he scored a TD on an INT, punt return and kickoff return, plus had a rushing or receiving TD in one game. Now this would have been almost 40 years ago, so I may be adding one that may not have happened??

Jared Tomich is the DL. 92 grad of LC.

I only saw Jaylon Smith as Frosh/Soph

Kyle Adams QB West Lafayette is the toughest QB I have coached against.  

Nick Zachary is the toughest Running QB I have coached against 

George Karlaftis is the toughest Defensive Player I have coached against 

Danny Anthrop was the toughest running back I coached against 

Martin Brothers at Chatard was the toughest OL i have coached against (if summer Team Camp counts) 

2 of my best players I have coached:  QB Jake Kiger and DE Austin Fleming 

 

Jake man.

He could throw a bomb for a td, run one in, kick a 40 yard field goal. I don't know if he returned kick returns or punt returns. If he did, he could return one each. Great player and solid dude. 

Fleming. I watched you guys 3 times that year both LCC games and at state. That play he made against Mater Dei is something I won't forget.... What a motor!. His senior year in bball he showed up in sectional final with some big buckets, he just couldn't hang with one of our sophomores that year (luke pugh). They made us earn that sectional title! (Still cant believe claussen missed that free throw). Talked to his dad a couple times. Nice guy.

I'm going to go with someone not mentioned and leave out players I have saw at state.

Curtis Painter was a STUD at the HS level.  Unbelievable athlete and a rocket for an arm.

What about this guy!?

Dude was a legend in Idaho. He had one of the fastest releases ever and I heard he had a rocket for an arm. Sources say he could throw the pigskin a quarter mile. Some people believed he could throw it over mountains. Brett Favre's and Patrick Mahomes' arms have nothing on his.

Morgan Newton, Brandon Peters, and Gunner Kiel are 3 of the best qb's I ever saw play against CG. Overall though, I would have to go with Jaylon Smith or George Karlaftis. They were just studs every play

Hes tied with Jackson Anthrop. 

Slightly behind Jacob Kiger and Danny Anthrop. 

I was a big fan of Danny, but Jack is the best player I've ever seen at the 1A level, hands down.

Thanks. I wanted to mention a RB that played against Snider in the 92' semi-state but couldn't recall the name. It was Jamaal Williams. He was a beast. Not sure how Snider held that team to 7 points.

James Banks was probably the best player that I ever saw in person.  Rex Grossman was pretty good  too.  I didn't see him play in person, but saw some video of Sheridan great Brett Law (wow!!) Former North Central RB Lars Tate was very impressive too.... Went to Georgia and was the Hiesman runner up.

Here is a pretty good list from Lincoln City:

Bruce King  Kansas City Chiefs

Chris Sigler  Ottawa Rough Riders CFL

Ken Dilger  Indianapolis Colts

Jade Winchell  Ball State University  (NFL talent derailed by concussions)

Jon Goldsberry  Buffalo Bills

Jay Cutler  Denver Broncos

Cole Seifrig   Miami Marlins  (NFL talent, drafted 5th round out of high school Miami Marlins)

 

Not bad for a small school in southern Indiana.

Yes....I remember Vagas Ferguson playing at ND.  He was awesome!  I don't remember his playing days at Richmond HS, but have to assume he was pretty special.

In Evansville I would say Levron Williams and Deke Cooper are at the top of my list in the 90's.  Also saw Zach Martin for Chatard in 2008 and prayed the kid who got Beetle Bailey'ed by him all night wouldn't be permanently injured and lose his commission to West Point.
