Coach (Brett) St. Germain has been really sick this week. We want to the Indiana Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday night and he didn't go. He stayed home and slept.

But he's recovering well. That's why he's a good coach. I haven't brought him any chicken soup yet, but if he asked me to I would.

I've been at Eastern Michigan the last two months. It's nice to get home for a week and see a lot of guys I've competed with the last few years.

I saw Nick Testa's picture at the Hall of Fame. He's a Lake Central guy and he was my coach at L.C. my freshman and sophomore years. The pictures there were cool.

It was funny to see the different styles of uniforms back in the day. I saw a picture of Munster coach Leroy Marsh, too.

We're looking forward to Friday's North-South All-Star game. It's going to be fun. Then, I have to go right back to Eastern on Monday.
