If you want to play, go outside

By Andrean senior offensive lineman Adam Kopil

We practiced in the Crown Point Dome on Monday. The air always feels thinner inside. It makes my throat burn and the rubber gets into your shoes. But we have to get ready. We're going to Lucas Oil Stadium (today) for our practice. The Crown Point Dome is weird because there's a baseball diamond in the middle of it. When planting on that stuff my foot seems to slide a little more. But everyone's quicker on it, even offensive linemen. I would hope my 40 time is under 5.

Hometown heroes

By Andrean senior offensive lineman John Zemkewicz

Walking into school was amazing on Monday. Right when you walked in the building there was a big sign that said, "Win State." There were a lot of congratulations from the students and teachers. The football moms decorated our lockers. They showed a slide show at lunch on Tuesday with highlights of the season. I had a chicken wrap, some chips and a water. Oh, and a cookie. The whole atmosphere is, well, big. We had mass on Tuesday and they talked about what we did and what we're hoping to do on Friday.
