LC Bears ranked #1 in HS FB

This the first time Warren Central, Ben Davis and Center Grove were eliminated in the first round of Sectionals since Indiana tournament football started in 1985.
I witnessed the mighty Warriors (defending State Champs) fall to Lawrence Central last Friday and surprised how fun it was to watch HS football. Tre Roberson is the QB - and he just might be the starting QB for the Hoosiers next year. I had gone to two whole games in the 10 years since I graduated, but I'll probably be doubling that total this weekend as LC hosts Perry Meridian. I felt as much pride as I do attending IU football games and its awesome to have a solid team to support. I'd be a real treat to see them make it to Lucas Oil next month.
Some interesting matchups this Halloween weekend:
  • Fishers @ Carmel
  • Valpo @ Merrillville
  • Avon @ Brownsburg
  • Bloomington North @ Columbus North (Week 3 rematch, Cbus won 27-24)
  • Terrible Haute North @ Pike (Patriots beat a good Zionsville team last week, Pike took down BD in OT)
  • Laf Jeff @ HSE (Jefferson won its first game of the season last week. This game will be a blowout)
  • Whiteland @ Columbus East
The final regular-season Coach's poll had these 5A teams ranked:
[WC, Valpo, Carmel, Mishawaka, CG, LC, HSE, Merrillville, Fishers, Pike] but the Freeman Rankings have da Bears ranked #1 - followed by WC, Carmel, Evansville Reitz, HSE, Pike, Bishop Dwenger, CN, Fishers, Cathedral, CE, CG, Elkhart Concord, Avon, Valpo, Mishawaka, Brownsburg, BD, Whiteland and Zionsville.

Hoosier golfer unlikely Ryder Cup star

Although the Americans eventual fell to the Europeans, one Ryder Cup rookie was screaming "Boom Baby!" after holing out from the fairway for Eagle on the 8th hole.

While Tiger and Phil had difficulty matching their counterparts, Jeff Overton not-so-calmly led the fight to keep the US hopes alive.

Maybe it was his Midwest golfing background that suited him well in chilly Newport, Wales. Or maybe he's just hungrier? After all, he still hasn't won a single PGA tour event.
Either way, my new favorite golfer will surely be tearing up the courses for years to come.
