Two-A-Days: Same old, same old for SAC champion Snider

The preeminent power of the SAC looks to take home a third consecutive conference crown and 12th straight sectional title. A strong senior class swings out the doors, but it’s next up for the Panthers. With plenty of star power to fill in the holes, one guy, in particular, could set the SAC ablaze. "I’m just a big guy," Snider defensive end Tavareon Scott said at practice. "I’ve got a dog mentality, and the man, above, I just thank God for everything." Scott i…

Former North Side forward Keion Brooks, Jr. speaks on decision

Saying good bye to the Fort is a sacrifice for the homegrown kid at North Side, but in order to make his dream a reality, it’s a sacrifice he is willing to make. "We prayed on it multiple times, and we just came together as a family and realized that La Lumiere was the necessary step to take for me to be successful moving on," Keion Brooks, Jr. said on Saturday night at Fort Wayne’s NBC  After contemplating over the summer, Keion Brooks, Jr. made the choice …

Two-A-Days: Leo Lions not satisfied

Just like the Bulldogs, rival Leo comes off a share of the NE-8 title with a senior quarterback returning under center. Senior A.J.

"Our goals and expectations really don’t change from year-to-year," Leo head coach Jared Sauder said at practice. "We look to get better e…

Brooks family undecided on school for senior season

Final Gym Rats Tournament of the summer, headlined in the Fort by Keion Brooks, Jr., and on Sunday, returning from a bout with tendinitis, the to-be senior superstar hit the game-winning jumper to lead his Indy Heat to a, 79-77, tourney victory. Brooks, Jr., scored a game-high 20 points, closing out his career with the Heat, simply, on fire. With some of the top coaches hoping to recruit him at the college level in attendance, Keion and his family are still determining where the hig…

Throwback Thursday: Southwood Knights first to reach state

A trip to Bankers Life. It was always their goal, but for a Southwood program, that had only advanced passed sectionals three times, was it anything more than a pipe-dream? On March 17, a legendary senior class stood toe-to-toe with the top-ranked team in the state, determined to make fairy-tale a reality. Sure Blackhawk was bigger, but as a scrappy squad composed of football stars, the Knights weren’t about to be bullied. Instead, they brought the tenacity that led to a, 55-53, v…
