This hasn’t been brought up today but Washington Township (North Central High School) in Indy announced that school will not be reopening and all extra curriculars have been suspended.  That includes fall sports. That’s an awfully big domino to fall.

I think it was brought up in another thread but not here. As many know North Central is actually like a small college in terms of student population....3700 or so. If reaction is the basis or judge of anything I'd say 8 of 10 parents are outraged. Ripple effects we all know. Parents staying home. Have to lose jobs or choose to stay home and watch kids vs working,etc...

No clue on season. We'll see what happens 4-5 miles up the road.

Well... it was nutty in the Jackson Bowl tonight...  We trailed 35-21 with 6 mins to go, converted a 4th and 10 with a 30 yard TD pass.  Got a stop.. marched 91 yards in 2 mins and 30 secs t

From the bottom of our heart... Every single person: nurses, doctors, other health care workers, school admin, teachers, custodial staff, coaches, athletic trainers, etc... we thank you for every

Both the states of California and Texas, large schools at least, have suspended the start of football season. Obviously, those are two very "hot spot" areas, but wouldn't surprise me if many other states follow suit.

In Illinois, the IHSA has a meeting on the 29th to decide the fate of fall sports.  I'm not very optimistic.

Just my humble opinion.  Just as with college ball. Not reason why there can't be Spring football, while we get past this pandemic.

We lost an entire season of spring sports already. I think people don't want to lose 2 seasons of the same sport, and moving football to the spring would likely do that to baseball.

Love ya an your inputs. However.... again IMHO.... better to lose parts of a season.... than a young player.  No doubt, it is a tough way to go, either way.

Was texting with some friends last night on this. Not optimistic at all....and lower level colleges is sounding more and more like Spring from what my buddy said.

Here is what the IHSA said a little bit ago about Illinois sports.  Why do I feel like I'm going to have 75 kids on the golf team now.

No high school football until at least October 1 in Marion County.  No volleyball or soccer either.

Is that a decision by the County, the State, or the IHSAA?  The soccer postseason is scheduled to start early October.  If the IHSAA does not postpone the tournament, those teams will be going straight to the postseason.

Down here in the southern part of the state, we have not received any official word about delays or postponements.

It appears the Marion County Health Department may be backtracking a bit,  Sports can continue to practice and the situation will be re-evaluated in a couple of weeks.

I heard on a South Bend station that fall sports are a go?

Just as I said above.  Why not move FB to the Spring ? 

As here on Colorado.  Tennis is opening up now.

If they had it in the spring you would have players who were college recruit sitting out the season.  Also it seems like some players are graduating mid term and going to college in January.  I would bet if college was played in the spring you would lose all NFL prospects on your team because they work out for the draft in the spring.

I am our teams fullbacks coach... and my position group is STRUGGLING(youth/inexperience/lack of practice/talent) for the first time in ever....so I'm in my head it was a good idea to show them how to position themselves on a certain blocking scheme, had a kid run half speed at me "blocked" him yada yada... well in the process I caught his face mask right below my eye and I have an AWESOME black guy eye right now lol its impressive and if I can get a good picture I'll post it. 

The kids absolutely thought it was the greatest thing in the world lolol 

Silly story but it's at least bringing a smile to their faces and thats wonderful to see.

How much help do you need with two hand touch? Techniques of the three Mississippi rush?

If my fullbacks from last year hit you, you would be praying for 2 hand touch.

Fullback is becoming a “lost” position in the day of spread, multi-wideout offenses.

Glad to see some old school football, but kinda surprised 

We are shotgun single wing/spinner series. Smash mouth with little bit of flare to it. Top 10 in the state in scoring in 10 of the last 27 years and 6 Top 10s in margin of victory. 

Center Grove, but not as traditional wing T as them and in the Gun.

I fell in love with football watching Larry Csonka.  Before my time, but I love watching Jimmy Taylor on highlights.  My favorite Csonka moment was that he got an unnecessary roughness flag while he was carrying the ball.

Yep. On his ESPN show, Peyton Manning did an episode on the “death of the fullback.” He interviewed Csonka and showed the clip of that play

I think this is the first season in like 8 years that Colts have a legit FB in Roosevelt Nix who they signed from the Steelers.
