Big Games Highlight Week One in Indiana

The hype has already started. The first poll is out to the public and menus are being planned for the first Friday night tailgating session in Indiana. Scrimmages are over and players have a pretty good idea who is starting this coming Friday night. It is high school football season in Indiana. Right off the bat there are some big games and you can read about them here first.

We will list a few for a quick read through so you can plan just where you may travel to see Hoosier high school football - Indiana's team game.

Cathedral @ Carmel 7:00pm

I am not sure if this game will continue for the next few years, but it does match up two of the most storied football programs in Indiana high school history. Some believe that Carmel may be a little down this year and that Cathedral (class 4A) may have the edge. But Carmel will simply reload. The question is, will it be 22 caliber or 45 caliber players?

Carmel was last year's 5A state runner up in one of the most exciting state final finishes in the history of Indiana. Cathedral was the 4A state champion in a close call with Ft. Wayne Dwenger. Part of the information you will find here will let you know where the Indiana "scout.com" players will be exhibiting their talents.

Cathedral will boast several scout.com players and maybe that is why many are giving them the edge. Kofi Hughes, who has verbally committed to Indiana University, will be the starting Irish quarterback. Scout listed players also include senior running back Nick Najem 5-10 190; Cameron Beard 6-6 245, a defensive end; and Jake Zupancic, a safety. Junior linebacker, Kyle Kennedy, is 6-3 190.

Carmel would claim this is a rebuilding year after they found themselves the last 2 years in the state finals. The defensive side of the ball will be anchored by Brian East 6-4 and 200 lbs. Chase Varndell will roam the defensive backfield at 5-10 and 185 lbs. Two quick tackles, Josh Yoder (5-11, 225) and John Wood (5-10, 215) bring speed and quickness at the defensive line spots.
