Steve Hanlon Column
CEDAR LAKE | It was a Christmas many years ago. A great joy from that season wonderfully still lives with us today. Read on.
It seems like only yesterday that it was 100 degrees and we were walking from one grid to another taking mug shots for our 2013 football preview edition. The season's over already? Dang.
INDIANAPOLIS | Things looked bleak in 2009. The IHSAA was looking to move the state football championships potentially outside of Indianapolis. Or, outside. How would Andrean fans think of that today in Indianapolis.
FORT WAYNE | Nearby, the Fort Wayne Dwenger Saints were jumping up and down, screaming about advancing to the Class 4A state championship game.
There are two things Andrean quarterback Matt DeSomer won't do tonight. But Niner Nation can relax. Neither have anything to do with football.

EAST CHICAGO | Last Friday night Denzel Thruston had a slice of pizza. The E.C. Central offensive tackle was celebrating his Cardinals' 46-44 win over West Side in the Class 4A Sectional 17 championship game, the first sectional title in school history.
EAST CHICAGO | TreQuan Burnett has hands of gold. His legs and the speed they generate is also in that priceless category.
GARY | Dana Evans, in one way, is your typical high school freshman. A little shy. Probably got lost trying to find the algebra classroom after leaving the history classroom. Traditional stuff.
In two years Lake Central will have a new football complex, with the ever-so-popular turf surface that's all the rage with big schools in Indiana.
ST. JOHN | When a mother talks about her daughter in a loving way, it will cause the average person to need a hanky. If they have a soul anyway.
This is an American story, even though it's a little different than in past times. It's a reflection of a well-known region football family.
EAST CHICAGO | In the middle of September an old buddy called and laughed about The Times Football Preview Section. The guy said we had it all wrong.
Back in the day, Roz Howell used to love to talk about Hobart football. The wife of Hall of Fame coach Don Howell didn't talk much about the 19 consecutive sectional titles, the 11 trips to Indianapolis or the four state championships the Brickies won.
So can you believe the regular season has flew by this quickly? Did you have fun watching great region football on Friday night?
Like waiting for the federal government to finally reopen again, or hoping that it stays shut down for the next 100 years like some are pulling for, region football fans were still waiting for word from the IHSAA on Thursday night.
ST. JOHN | It hasn't been a piano. It's been a continent of pianos that has been on the back of Lake Central's football program.
ST. JOHN | It's something any high school football player in Indiana would love to do. To run out onto the football field in front of a standing-room-only crowd with a conference title on the line is what dreams are made of.
GARY | Ten minutes before the biggest game on West Side's schedule, Cougars coach Jason Johnson wasn't preparing for Morton's offense. Or defense. Or special teams.
We're about to head into our sixth year of "Hope and Change." Here's hoping we all have more than just change in our seven-year-old ripped Wranglers in the near future.
