  • Wild ending sends Little Giants to Quarterfinals
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:49 PM

    What is it about second-round NCAA playoff games at Hollett Little Giant Stadium? It was a come-from-behind win on a 2-point conversion over North Central in 2011. Saturday's come-from-behind overtime victory over No. 9 Thomas More was thanks to a fumble recovery and 75-yard touchdown return, 33-27.

    Wabash trailed 27-13 late in the third quarter. Wabash's defense stepped up in a big way to shut down the potent Saints' offense and then turned in the game-winning play. Tied at 27 all in overtime, junior LV Bowden crashed into Saints' quarterback Brenan Kuntz causing a fumble. Ethan Buresh was right there to pick up the loose ball and run 75 yards for the score.

  • Athenians fend off Bison
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:46 PM

    The Crawfordsville Athenians (2-0, 0-0 SAC) defended their home court Saturday night, fighting off the Bison of Benton Central (1-1, 0-0) 76-67. Crawfordsville finished the night with five players in double figures.

    The Athenians got off to a stifling start, jumping out to a 21-7 lead after the first quarter led by a pair of sophomores in Jack Sommer with eight and Cameron Harris with seven.

  • Chargers raided
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:44 PM

    WEST LAFAYETTE – After defeating Class 2A Speedway Wednesday evening by 10, North Montgomery travelled to Class 4A West Lafayette Harrison Saturday. The Raiders used a suffocating defense, and strong first half, to defeat the Chargers 68-42.

    “Our first two games are out of the frying pan and into the fire, as far as athletes,” said North Montgomery head coach Joel Grindle. “They’re (Harrison) a good basketball team, and they put a ton of pressure on you defensively, and I though we handled that better in the second half.”

  • Danville rains 3's vs. Athenians
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:39 PM

    Danville's Hannah Newby poured in all of her first four shots from the 3-point line, and chipped in two more as the catalyst of a 29 point first quarter, leading the visiting Lady Warriors to a 69-23 SAC victory over Crawfordsville.

    “I told them to come out with intensity,” informed Danville (3-3) coach Kaley May. “There has been a lot of things we need to work on, and starting games is one of them. It really pleases me to come out with some fire.”

  • What a comeback
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:36 PM

    Saturday was a wild day of football, across the country, to say the least. Notre Dame scored what most would’ve thought was the game winning touchdown with 0:30 left in their game against Stanford, only to see the Cardinal drive down the field and kicker Conrda Ukropina nailed a 45-yarder as time expired to dash the Fighting Irish chances at making the BCS Championship with a 38-36 win.

    Or, you could go to West Lafayette for the Old Oaken Bucket game. Indiana, needing a win to make a bowl for only the second time in eight years, when Terry Hoeppner had the reigns, almost let another one slip away late. Back on October 17, they led Rutgers 52-27 midway through the third quarter only to see the Scarlet Knights rattle off 28-straight for their only Big Ten Conference win 55-52

    What's your mental approach when you are in a slump or having trouble getting playing time? Do you sulk? Do you feel sorry for yourself? Do you blame the coach or take accountability? How do you react in game time situations, especially in rival games?

    Gary Danielson, color commentator for CBS and former college (Purdue) and professional quarterback, said something during a recent broadcast that makes plenty of sense.

    "In the biggest games it's the littlest things that make all the difference." Sometimes when we look at the big picture, we forget about all the little things that can lead to success.  Pay attention to those little things along the way to lift yourself up when it really counts!

  • North’s dynamic duo, Parsons and Adams
    Friday, November 27, 2015 3:05 PM

    It all started in sixth grade. Two boys joined the same football team and the rest is history.

    Seven years and thousands of yards later, these same kids are graduating after receiving The Paper’s 2015 Montgomery County Football Players of the Year.

    Alex Parsons and Baylee Adams both received the award this year after a record-breaking 2015 season all around for North Montgomery.

    The Paper’s 2015 Montgomery All-County Team divides the county’s players into different positions on offense and defense with several doubling up on both sides of the ball. A total of 24 players made it onto the team filling 29 positions. Five players including Alex Parsons, Jordan Banta, Zach Worm, Trent Johnson and Ryan Barr were voted for both offense and defense.

    A 13-6-5, North-South-C’ville ratio makes up the Team. Starting with North, Alex Parsons (Player of the Year), Devon Zachary and Cole Clore graced the First-Team skills positions. These three contributed 47 touchdowns to North’s 68 during the season. Parsons had 11 receiving and 9 rushing, Zachary had 16 receiving (the most touchdown receptions in the county) and Clore had 8 rushing and 2 receiving.

    Amid the joys of family and memories this Thanksgiving, our attention begins turning to the many traditions, obligations, and demands on our time at the Holidays.

    I’m going to add one more. I need you to watch a football game, Saturday.

    Oh sure, watching football has long been among the citadels of Thanksgiving traditions––even for nonfans. But this year, I want you to start a new family tradition, and watch this Saturday’s game in person –– at Hollett Little Giant Stadium, Wabash College.
