Like many success stories, Rich Kallok's coaching career started by coincidence.
CARMEL | In between the two games Saturday at the ICGSA North-South All-Star Games, state awards were announced, and a Northwest Indiana person earned one of them for the first time in seven years.
MERRILLVILLE | After a third straight loss in the regional round of the postseason, Dave Pishkur asked around about how to fix what was ailing the Andrean baseball team.
It's been written that life is a vapor. Boy, it sure seems that way. It seemed like yesterday we were putting out our football tab last August. Now, we're planning the next one.

MERRILLVILLE | Early in Dave Pishkur's coaching career, he hoped that any player on his Andrean baseball team would pick one sport and stick to it.
MERRILLVILLE | As the baseball season started, Andrean's David Cox was told he'd be a backup on multiple positions on the field.
PLYMOUTH | Centennial Park and Andrean baseball have a history, and it has been mostly unglamorous for the 59ers.
As senior Patrick Terry came to bat in the fourth inning Saturday, Andrean led 13-2 and not much was at stake.
PLYMOUTH | It was a fluke of the typewriter, marking Matt DeSomer's name on the Plymouth Semistate roster as "KeSomer."
