September 21, 2015
By

This week when Batesville plays Lawrenceburg in football, it will be a good chance for you to see their new “turf” football field.  It is a beautiful orange and black color pattern around a green field which replaces the old “Mud Bowl”.   It should be a good long-term investment for Lawrenceburg. Hopefully, their new gymnasium...

By

There are so many college athletes getting in trouble these days that sports writers and commentators have a debate going on as to who is to blame for all of these bad actions.  Is it the coach, the academic advisor, the college recruiter, or the player himself?

One time when I went to a coaching clinic I found an open seat in the front row.  I had only been coaching a few years at that time.  When I looked over to my left, I was amazed to see who was sitting next to me.  It was John Wooden!  He was coaching...

Good Interview

September 14, 2015
By

I was recently asked what makes a good interview?  I thought of 5 things that probably make an individual a good interviewer.  They are: 1.  Be yourself and don’t try to copy someone else’s style.  Not everyone is a Marty Brennamen. 2.

High School Athletes

In my job as the host of Coaches’ Corner, I get to interview high school athletes from the area.  What a difference it is interviewing these student athletes today than when I started over 30 years ago. Today the athletes are not afraid of the microphone nor are they at a loss for words.  Only...

Spencer Haywood is the Curt Flood of basketball.  When Curt Flood brought about free agency in baseball, he changed the game forever.  Spencer Haywood did the same for pro basketball when he left college early.  Even though he had to go to court to do so, he left the University of Detroit and was...

When Batesville and Milan played their annual “Bell” game, both teams were missing their top running backs.  Michael Thompson of Milan, I understand, has an ACL injury and is probably out for the season.  This is not only a blow to the Milan football fortune, but a sadder end to a great high school...
