Darrick Cox

October 24, 2013
By

With the start of winter sports, a familiar face will be on the scene but in a new role.  Darrick Cox has taken over the girls basketball program at BHS.  Darrick was a sports star at BHS in the late 90’s.  He also coached boys basketball and track at BHS.  He takes over a girls...

The Misfit

October 23, 2013
By

My wife and I were watching a new sitcom on TV the other day called “Back in the Game”.  It dealt with those kids who are always chosen last in any athletic event.  In fact, these kids weren’t even chosen to be on a Little League Team.  If you have ever coached at any...

Fund Raising

October 22, 2013
By

Anybody who has ever coached or taught for any length of time has been involved with some type of fund raiser.  I have already talked about several of the ones that Batesville and other area schools use.  On vacation to visit the grandchildren in Iowa we ran into quite an unusual one.  This particular fund...

Fall Foliage

October 21, 2013
By

This is one of my favorite times of the year.  Whenever you have a rainy summer, the fall leaf color is beautiful.  In my days of coaching cross country I remember the trips to places like Rising Sun, Union County, and Columbus where we were able, not only to see the changing leaves on...

Football Friday

October 18, 2013
By

Believe it or not, tonight is the last regular season football game  for area high schools.  Next week starts the playoff system which this year contains 6 divisions.  The super schools are now classified as 6A and it goes down from there to 1A.  Football is such a numbers game that the 5A class...

Baseball Bats

October 17, 2013
By

The other day David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox showed up for batting practice with a metal bat.  Of course, these are banned in major league baseball, but he wanted to put on a show for the fans during batting practice.  He supposedly hit several balls completely out of Fenway Park–even some over...

Dusty Baker

October 16, 2013
By

I  was out of town when Dusty’s tenure in Cincinnati came to an end.  After their loss to Pittsburgh, I am sure his dismissal came as no surprise to most baseball fans.  You can’t fire the multi-millionaires who do not perform up to their potential, so the scapegoat is always the manager first.  I...

Education vs. Fun

October 15, 2013
By

All people my age can remember getting out of 7th period class to go to an athletic contest.  We also can remember, if not weekly, at least bi-monthly pep sessions.  It seems that all of us graduated on time and most of us did quite well as we went on to further our education. ...

Good Old Days

October 14, 2013
By

Before I get into today’s topic, I would like to add a clarification to an article I ran last week.  In the conference football championships, the scenario I was trying to report that one team could win a championship in their division and wind up with an overall 2-5 conference schedule (I think I...

EIAC Football Split

October 11, 2013
By

Yesterday I explained the reason for the EIAC split in the football portion of the conference.  To me, when you have a 9-game regular season, it is not that difficult to schedule the other 7 schools and have a single conference champion.  Theoretically, someone could win a single game in their portion of the conference...
