    The Game Plan for Football Friday Night Playoffs Week 2

    INDIANAPOLIS – Get out the jackets, folks. Your going to need it. Winter’s chill creeps into Autumn for the first time on a Friday night where the temperatures are expected to fall into the lower 30s with a snow shower potential for the second week of play in the Sectionals. A regional berth is on the line for the teams in Class 6A which thanks to a lesser amount of teams is a week ahead of everyone else who are […]

    Grigson sees a “Championship Caliber” Colts team-if they are consistent

    INDIANAPOLIS -In the span of two weeks, his belief and concerns were completely justified. The first for Ryan Grigson came on a sunny day at Lucas Oil Stadium on October 19th against the Bengals. The Colts were tricky, quick and agile in pitching the team’s first shutout in six years while their offense struck at the right time to produce a 27-0 win over Cincinnati. Seven days later it all crashed. That defense that was stellar the week before was […]

  • Pacers players celebrate their opening night win over the Sixers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    Pacers opening night win a start to a long process

    INDIANAPOLIS – The massive big screen at center court screamed out the achievement in the brightest yellow it could pump out. “Pacers Win! Pacers Win!” over and over again it showed–lighting up the green seats at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win” blared across arena to a collection of cheers as they people grabbed their belongings and headed for the exits. The Pacers waved as they went off the court–sans a pair doing interviews following their […]

  • Carmel hits the practice field to prepare for their Sectional 4 Final against Fishers.

    Carmel’s defense creates its own identity as the playoffs continue

    CARMEL – True die-hard prep football fans had no trouble identifying the stars on offense who would don the bright yellow helmets for the team in south Hamilton County. Viktrup, Paschall, James, Perkins. All specialists for the Carmel’s offensive unit that earned plenty of publicity during their run to a 2013 Class 6A title game performance. They were all back to make sure that the Greyhounds finished the job in 2014 after losing in the state championship game to Warren […]

    Roethlisberger has career day in Steelers’ 51-34 win over the Colts

    PITTSBURGH – The joy of six would have to come from a place they haven’t been in six years. It’s not a venue a team would really like to go a lot considering that the Steelers have won over 75 percent of their games they’ve played at Heinz Field. In fact when the Colts won their last game against the Steelers in 2008 it was the first time they’d won in Pittsburgh since 1968. As usual, winning in Pittsburgh is […]

  • Pacers President Larry Bird talks with a fan during the team's annual Masquerade Ball at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    Charity still a big part of Larry Bird’s basketball life

    INDIANAPOLIS – The small town humility still exists even after all the years of big time fame. It’s maybe why Larry Bird says that he prefers to make his donations to charity in a more private matter rather than a venue like Bankers Life Fieldhouse as it was on Saturday. “All my donations are sort of made under the table. I don’t need the publicity-I’m not doing it for publicity,” said Bird of his charitable work. “But I do care. […]

    Candidates for the McAlister’s SPUDtacular Play of the Week for October 24th

    INDIANAPOLIS – It’s playoff time. Finally. It’s truly “Put-Up-Or-Shut-Up” time for high school football teams across the State of Indiana because it’s win or that’s it. That means the plays made by the athletes are going to get bigger as seasons are decided with every snap. While there may be a lot of these plays from a lot of players-only two will have the chance to be called “SPUDtacular.” For a tenth-straight week Fox 59 will award the McAlister’s SPUDtacular […]

  • Ben Davis receiver Chris Evans crosses the goal line for a touchdown against Pike in the Giant's 49-38 Sectional victory.

    Ben Davis shakes off recent playoff struggles against Pike

    INDIANAPOLIS – In all likelyhood, there would be little topping the drama of the last time these two teams took the field in September. There were 96 combined points scored on Friday night-then the lightning came. That meant the final minute was played at 10 AM Saturday morning and the team that came into the finish of the game with the lead didn’t finish with it. “You think you’ve seen everything,” said Ben Davis head coach Mike Kirschner when asked […]

    The Football Friday Night Blitz Sectional 1st Round: Fishers, Southport win rivalry games

    INDIANAPOLIS – Sometimes the ping pong balls bring a chance for rivals to collide with more than pride on the line. That was the case for a pair of foes from Hamilton County and the southside of Indianapolis. Perry Meridian would get another shot at Southport after getting beaten badly by the Cardinals early in the season. Hamilton Southeastern had a similar shot against county rival Fishers, whom they lost to 41-10. But what happened in the regular season held […]

  • Curtis Collins is awarded the McAlister's SPUDtacular Play of the Week Award.

    Curtis Collins wins the McAlister’s SPUDtacular Play of the Week

    INDIANAPOLIS – Their season may have ended on Friday night, but Pike has one award they can take from the 2014 season. In the final week of the regular season running back Curtis Collins used a couple of moves and speed to break a long run against Lawrence North and give Pike a victory heading into the playoffs. That play not only helped his team but was voted by you the fans as the McAlister’s SPUDtacular Play of the Week […]
