The Andrean football locker room is not rife with pictures, but one new wall adornment stands out this fall.

It’s a team picture, reproduced from the IHSAA’s 2012 state football program, of Fort Wayne Bishop Luers. The distinctive background image is Andrean’s scoreboard.

For the program Luers used its team photo from the aftermath of its 35-21 win over the host 59ers in the Class 2A northern semistate last fall.

Now it’s a reminder of how close Andrean was to state last year.

“I’m not angry, and I don’t look at it as disrespectful,” Andrean coach Phil Mason said. “But if that doesn’t inspire you, if that doesn’t burn a hole in your chest, I don’t know what will.” — Paul Trembacki

Scout time: Hobart junior Noah Smith is one of the Brickies' most passionate players. Coach Ryan Turley said some college coaches from Wisconsin and Miami-Ohio were in to look at senior Nicholas Bokun and they saw Smith and wanted to meet him, too.

The team got done doing their Brickie Jacks and Smith started hollering and jumping around. That's when the coach spoke.

"Man, that kid has passion, I have to shake his hand."  Steve Hanlon

New, but not new: Cole Teal is Chesterton's new starting quarterback, but the senior isn't a rookie. He was thrown into the fray as a sophomore when Chris Katsafaros injured his ankle and ran the show for several games. Teal is also a two-year starter in basketball, so he's not lacking experience in pressure situations.

"That maturity will help," coach Mark Peterson said. "Cole's a really savvy player. He's demonstrated that in game settings. He's a guy who can help us stretch the field, brings things in space. He's a dual threat, passing or running, and he'll make good decisions to benefit the team." Jim Peters 

Valpo hosts scrimmage: Valparaiso will host Griffith in a scrimmage at 7 p.m. Friday. Admission is a food or monetary donation to the local food pantry.

RRSN kickoff show Monday: The Regional Radio Sports Network will conduct its 22nd annual RRSN-Indiana Football Digest Region High School Football Kickoff Show from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday at Gelsosomo’s Pizzeria, 5023 U.S. 6, Portage.

The event will broadcast on WEFM-FM (95.9) and www.rrsn.com. Coaches and players from 14 Northwest Indiana teams will be on hand to talk about the upcoming season. Scheduled to appear are Merrillville, Boone Grove, Chesterton, Hobart, Crown Point, Lake Central, Valparaiso, LaPorte, Lowell, Morton, Portage, Kankakee Valley, Michigan City and Munster.
