The state's leading returning passer is changing schools just a few days before the opening of the 2014 prep football season.
Like many success stories, Rich Kallok's coaching career started by coincidence.
Dave Templin grew up on the east side of Gary, near the steel mills. Before graduating from Emerson in 1966, a blue-collar lunch-pail district, he would drive south with his pals.
By the eighth grade, Paco Jordan realized he was too short to play the sport that Gary athletes are known for.
GARY | Gene Johnson had a simple plan for the boys track and field team at West Side. The Cougars coach knew he had a sprint star in senior JonVea' Johnson, no relation.
HAMMOND | Bowman Academy has speed, athleticism and quickness that can't be duplicated.
HAMMOND | Neither West Side nor Hammond wants to limp into the boys basketball postseason, but a sluggish first half of Friday's season finale left both coaches shaking their heads after the game.
GARY | When it comes to public school basketball in Gary, West Side is still the big cat in the yard.
GARY | The 34-degree weather would be forgotten if the Lew Wallace-Roosevelt game would have been played outside on Friday night.
GRIFFITH | One glaring statistic stands out in Wednesday’s Class 3A Griffith Sectional first-round game between Gavit and Lew Wallace.
CHESTERTON | West Side’s girls basketball program has a bright future.
GARY | It’s called living up to the hype.
DeJah Joshua's journey to the University of Houston began when the first person told her that she couldn't achieve a goal.
Last year: 17-4, (2-0 NWC)
EAST CHICAGO | It was power vs. speed. Blue-collar vs. speed. Lunch buckets vs. speed.
GARY | It’s been a tumultuous week for the West Side football team, with the IHSAA probing its facilities and ruling it unfit for hosting a sectional game.
GARY | West Side didn't dwell on last week's last-second loss to Morton.
GARY | You can be up to your chin straps in Division I recruits, but if you don't play lock-down defense, your postseason will be shorter than alligator arms.
EAST CHICAGO | E.C. Central might have been somewhat unfocused Friday night to start its homecoming matchup against Lew Wallace, but the Cardinals eventually found their rhythm en route to a 34-0 victory over the Hornets.
