I was covering Friday night’s Class A semistate football game between Central Catholic and Sheridan, a game in which the Knights defeated the Blackhawks 13-3 on the Blackhawks home field.
The win means that Central Catholic Head Coach Kevin O’Shea, his coaching staff, and the Knights players are one win away from winning their fourth consecutive Class A state title, which they can achieve by defeating Indianapolis Scecina Friday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Friday night’s win by the Knights showed once again that not only are the Knights a talented bunch, but they’re extremely tough and can win under just about any kind of circumstances. To Sheridan’s credit, they turned the game into a limited possession contest. But the Knights adapted and, thanks in large part to a tremendous defense and a superb evening by punter Andrew Hubertz, are headed to the home field of the Indianapolis Colts for the fourth year in a row.
This is a coaching staff and group of players, both past and present, that I’m most impressed with. And that’s why I’m very confident by this time next week they’ll be hosting yet another state championship trophy.
