Sometimes a fresh start is exactly what a person needs. A new day with fresh flowers and unknown experiences. Take an easy breath.
RENSSELAER | Coming into Friday’s Hoosier Conference game between a pair of state-ranked teams (Rensselaer is No. 2 in Associated Press poll in 2A; Lafayette Central Catholic was No. 3), something had to give.
RENSSELAER | The afternoon started in Hobart. Got stuck downtown by the Brickies' homecoming parade. This stuff is still cool to me. Made a sign of the cross when I drove by the Brickie Bowl.
DEMOTTE | Very few goals separate Boone Grove and Rensselaer on the pitch.
RENSSELAER | It was a clash of state-ranked titans with supremacy in the Hoosier Conference at stake on Friday night at Harrison Field.
Back in 2009, Rensselaer put together a 24-play scoring drive that covered the entire third quarter and one snap of the fourth in a 21-18 sectional championship win over Wheeler.
WHEATFIELD | Big plays were the rule rather than the exception in No. 3 Rensselaer’s dominating 60-34 victory over host Kankakee Valley on Friday night in the season opening game for both teams.
When the Rensselaer coaching staff huddled over the summer about switching to a five-man defensive front, coach Chris Meeks knew he needed a good nose tackle to make it work.
You'll find his name on Rensselaer's football roster. He's listed as No. 3, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound senior running back-defensive back.
As bus rides go, there are no short trips in the Hoosier Conference for Rensselaer, ranging from a 45-minute hike to Twin Lakes to a two-hour trek to Tipton.
It's hard to under-value what Austin Hooker means to the Tipton offense.
On the football field, success is measured by yards and points kept track of on scoreboards by people like Steve Roberts.
It's common in smaller towns like Rensselaer, where the community wraps its arms around the high school football team.
When you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.
Situated roughly halfway between Northwest Indiana and Lafayette, Rensselaer doesn't draw great attention from either media market.
It's rare that you find a coach and a son in the same program, but it's even more rare that the two find success.
RENSSELAER | The Rensselaer student body stormed Harrison Field after Friday night’s 20-6 victory over rival Kankakee Valley to reclaim the Cracker Barrel.
Emilie Ziese saw her senior basketball season flash before her eyes when a doctor said three simple letters: ACL.
Back when Chelsie Meeks was in seventh grade, her father, Chris, the Rensselaer Middle School track coach at the time, brought a discus home from practice one day.
