Central Catholic vs. West Lafayette Photo Gallery

Here are some of the pictures that I liked from last night’s great game. The one that makes me sick comes near the end of the gallery. Danny Anthrop made a great run for his second touchdown of the night which included a nice leap over a couple of players. I got the shot, but had my camera set up wrong after taking some pictures during a timeout. I guess you learn a little each time you shoot, and I learned that you have to always check your camera settings.

Central Catholic Takes One Away From West Lafayette in a Battle of #1’s

This was a hard fought game all the way through

With nothing else to do tonight I grudgingly drove back to Central Catholic’s field to watch the game between #1 Central Catholic and #1 West Lafayette. Who am I kidding? When I realized that I would be in town this weekend I knew that I would be at this game. Two of the top schools in the state going head to head is not something to miss. When they are on opposite sides of the town that you live in you have to go. Continue reading

The Danny Anthrop Show

Danny Anthrop finds himself all alone on his way to an electrifying punt return

Tonight I continued my tour of West Lafayette high school stadiums with a trip to see Central Catholic play. Being an hour and a half away from home it really doesn’t make sense to drive that far to watch a high school team play. Instead I thought that I would check out a couple of the many schools in my area. Tonight I went across the bridge to see Purdue commit Danny Anthrop and his Central Catholic Knights. Going to the game Anthrop was the only player that I knew on the Knights. I remembered some of the Rensselaer players from seeing them at West Lafayette a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading

Purdue Wins the Preseason WNIT!


Sam Ostarello cuts down the net after the game

Early today I changed my plans for the day to head down to West Lafayette for a men’s and women’s basketball double header. I was curious to see if the Lady Boilers could beat Depaul to add some new hardware to the trophy case. Although the final score was 67-58, Purdue did not have an easy time with Depaul.  Continue reading

Games Notes: Purdue Boilermakers vs. #7 Wisconsin Badgers

We may see this flag a lot on Saturday

Well this post will be tough. The Boilers have lost the last two games by a combined 93-10. They have lost their last two to the Badgers by a combined score of 61-3. That does not inspire great confidence in me as I prepare to head down to West Lafayette. A lot of people are talking about how we were in a similar situation last season with #7 Ohio State coming into town. This is not the same situation. The Purdue team last season had lost some tight games in their tailspin. This team has gotten their butts kicked the last two games, and are showing no signs of coming out of it.  Continue reading
