    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 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 […]

    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 […]

    Colts receiver Reggie Wayne ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Steelers

    INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 24, 2014) – After spending most of the 2013 season without the services of Reggie Wayne at least the Colts will know what to do when it happens again on Sunday. On Friday afternoon head coach Chuck Pagano said that the veteran receiver will miss Sunday’s game against the Steelers with an elbow injury suffered in last week’s win over the Bengals. Wayne was not able to practice this week and will be held out because of it. […]

  • Football Friday Night – Week 8 (Segment 3)

    The Game Plan for Football Friday Night for Sectional Week 1

    INDIANAPOLIS – The long road to Lucas Oil Stadium begins with a single step this Friday. Every team from around the State of Indiana has a chance to come home with a championship since everyone qualifies for the IHSAA State Tournament. But getting there is grueling – five or six games await a team if they have a dream of a state championship and progressively the contests get more difficult as time goes along. Football Friday Night will be going […]

  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton takes off downfield after making a 2nd quarter  catch against the Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    This year it’s fast starts that are the key to Colts victories

    INDIANAPOLIS – If you were a Colts fan in 2013, it might have been a good thing if you choose to arrive fashionably late. In tenĀ of their regular season games last season, the Colts started out trailing their opponents. Sometimes it was by just three points while others were double digits. Somehow Chuck Pagano’s team was able to pull out a rally in six of those gamesĀ  for a victory and then in the playoffs against the Chiefs in epic […]

  • Ben Davis defeated Pike 53-50 in September in a game in which the finish was delayed till Saturday morning due to weather.

    Even as they move forward, Pike and Ben Davis can’t help but look back

    INDIANAPOLIS – When the Sectional Pairings were announced, there was no doubt where the minds of football fans in Wayne and Pike Townships went immediately to the night of September 5th and the early morning of September 6th. For Pike receiver Rashad Medaris, the memories of the latter immediately popped into mind. “A day doesn’t go by without me thinking about that,” said Medaris of an unusual yet thrilling match-up between the Red Devils and Ben Davis at Pike on […]

    Zionsville family helps put Manning’s 509th TD football in Hall of Fame

    CANTON, OH – Somehow someway, there will always be some Indianapolis connection to the man currently quarterbacking the Broncos. After throwing his NFL-record 509th touchdown pass on Sunday at Sports Authority Field in Denver, the ball which Peyton Manning set the record with is already at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. Ironically the first visitors to the facility on the day it arrived at the facility were from a suburb of Indianapolis. Keith Rossell of Zionsville […]

    Even if Reggie Wayne is out, Colts aren’t worried about their receivers

    INDIANAPOLIS – This is nothing new for this group-and that’s both good and bad. First off the bad: Reggie Wayne has an injury that may require him to miss sometime. Head coach Chuck Pagano said on Tuesday that an MRI didn’t reveal any major damage to the elbow he injured late in the Colts’ 27-0 win over the Bengals on Sunday but that the receiver’s status is “Day-To-Day.” But if the injury ends up keeping him out a little or […]
