Lew Wallace football schedule still up in the air

The John Harrell football website is one of the most useful websites in the state and rarely, if ever, is the information assembled there incorrect.

As the 2013 Indiana high school football season kicks off this Friday, every schedule in the state can be found there. Lew Wallace's mini-schedule is there. It only has four games.

"That's not true, that's not true at all," Wallace football coach Al Williams said Tuesday night. "We've got seven games, maybe eight, which is good for us."

Williams searched and found his schedule and told The Times what it is. The problem is there are two games that are doubtful at best.

According to Williams, the Hornets will play at Indianapolis Howe on Aug. 30, at Ross Beatty on Sept. 13, home against St. Francis de Sales on Sept. 20, at Roosevelt on Sept. 27, at E.C. Central on Oct. 4, home against West Side on Oct. 11 and at Fort Wayne South on Oct. 18.

"And we might have one more, we're just not sure yet," Williams said.

The problem is Indianapolis Howe is scheduled to play at Evansville Harrison on Aug. 30. Also, St. Francis de Sales does not have Wallace on its schedule. De Sales is scheduled to play Chicago Leo on Sept. 21.

"I spoke with de Sales' athletic director in December so I believe we're playing them," Williams said.

Also, on Beatty's schedule on their website, the Michigan school does not have Lew Wallace listed. So it is possible the Hornets will only play four games this fall.

Crown Point native and IHSAA spokesman Jason Wille said there is no minimum requirement of regular season games needed for postseason eligibility.

So even if the Hornets ended up having zero football games this fall, they would still be in sectional play.

Wille also said that the IHSAA is aware that Gary Lighthouse has dropped football for this fall.

"These games have been scheduled," Williams said. "It's hard to get games when you're not in a conference."
