  1. I just watched the mix tape of De’Ron Davis. He looks like a baller. The sad thing about the video was seeing those kids playing in empty gyms. It’s all bout recruiting now. As a kid in southern Indiana I watched my friends play every game in gyms overflowing with thousands of rabid fans screaming their collective lungs out.

    Now, you get mix tapes and games that don’t mean anything.

    No wonder some kids have maturity issues. They play for themselves and for coaches and recruiting vultures in the stands. They can’t possibly imagine the experience of playing a sectional game between Jeffersonville and New Albany. They used to televise that game 40 years ago. It was crazy.

    Anymore, the best kids leave their hometowns and play for Oak Hill Academy or some other glorified basketball camp.

    I think that one of the best things about high school football is that no one has found a way to steal it away from the schools…yet.

  2. HC, I am old enough to remember when Norm Ellenburger coached at New Haven High School. He was born in my home town Fort Wayne Indiana. Knight thought enough of him to give him a second chance after his troubles in New Mexico and he did not disappoint. Rest in peace Norm.
