Bishop Noll coach Mike Juscik has some decisions to make before the Warriors take the field for their first game this season.

One of those is quarterback, where Nick Thrasher and Anthony Fundukian have battled this summer.

Thrasher has the edge to start, but Fundukian could still see some time at QB and other offensive positions depending on the team's needs.

"If Nick did not start at quarterback, Nick would start at receiver," Juscik said. "The question we've had to ask is would we rather have him at receiver or quarterback right now? It's possible, early on, they'll both take time in our first couple games and see what works best."

On the defensive side of the ball, there are holes to fill at defensive end and linebacker.

Fundukian and Thrasher are two of those guys who could start, along with Anthony Mayers, Josh Rosario, Mark Feliciano and Elijah Golumbeck.

"We probably have six guys battling for four starting spots," Juscik said. "We have some heavy-duty, good battles going on there." -- Matt Douthett

Whiting will practice on new turf: For the last four years, the School City of Whiting has hotly debated whether or not to acquire artificial turf for its football facility.

Now that they have it, the Oilers are going to put it to good use.

"Whenever we practice, we'll use the new field," Whiting coach Jeff Cain said. "All of our football teams will use the field, and the good thing is it will be in the same shape when we get back out there." -- Paul Honeycutt

Stewart to face longtime mentor: A lot of eyes from Northwest Indiana will be on the North Judson at Kankakee Valley contest Sept. 27.

The game will pit Brad Stewart’s Kougars against his longtime fellow coach Kirk Kennedy, who’s now the head coach of the Bluejays.

“Kirk and I are friends,” said Stewart, who was an assistant under Kennedy for 19 seasons at Lowell. “We have great respect for each other, and when we strap it on, we’re going to run into each other.

“I, for one, want his respect, and the way to do that is to beat him.”

Kennedy, who spent the last three seasons at Bloomington South, compiled a 161-70 mark at Lowell from 1991-2009. Stewart said North Judson is already a rivalry game and will be even bigger now.

“North Judson is the next district over, so the kids are going to be fired up for it,“ he said. “Obviously, it’s going to attract some media attention.” -- Christopher Breach
