SF rule for 6A. Get 6 points your program sits out post season for 2 years. That way the other schools in 6A have a chance. 

Still love it when p/p folks chime in on these topics.  Classic.

Born on third base thinking they hit a triple.

How much of this is "on" individual schools to put some systematic support pieces in place that we know enhance athletics.  Things like appropriately sized weight rooms, strength and conditioning coaches, well thought out teacher hires so that coaches are in each building to get kids out to play and coaching staffs have continuity, reduced schedules for Varsity Coaches, etc.  

Many of you keep talking about Elkhart rising up, and I hope that they do,........but its my guess that the systemic support that is in place at Carmel, Center Grove, or even Westfield, looks a lot different than what is in place at Elkhart. 

 

With all the hardships in public education today, how many schools even have an interest (and by interest I mean putting there time and money where their mouth is) in competing for state titles in football (which is the most resource driven sport of them all)?

I dont think its a priority.  Out of nearly 40 high schools in Northwest Indiana, Id suggest maybe 5 or 6 are true football schools that have a year round state championship mentality

Id rank them in the following order :

Andrean

Lowell

Hobart

Michigan City

Valparaiso

Merrillville
