Rockie Youth Football League to kick off this fall

March 26, 2011

PLYMOUTH – Youth football players in Plymouth will have a new league to hone their skills this fall.
The Rockie Youth Football League will begin play this coming season. The league will be run in conjunction with the Plymouth High School football program and will play on Saturdays in the fall. The idea is to operate the league as a “feeder” program for the team.
“The focus is going to be on fundamentals,” said Plymouth head football coach John Barron. “We have some very basic things that we think it’s very important for kids to learn and we want to be there to help out.”

The Trojan Way: Community rallies around Triton basketball

March 25, 2011

BOURBON — Much was made of “The Trojan Way” at Triton’s boys basketball pep rally Thursday.
True, you can’t talk about the boys basketball program’s recent success — the Trojans will make their third appearance at state in four years at Saturday’s Class A final at Conseco Fieldhouse — without mentioning in the same breath the culture of hard work and high expectations that sixth-year head coach Jason Groves has put in place.

Little 5 crowd has Barron to thank for Weezy show

March 24, 2011

BLOOMINGTON — Plymouth High School graduate (2007) and Indiana University senior Meredith Barron will undoubtedly remember many special events from her four years at I.U., but the one scheduled for April 12 will more than likely be a standout.
Barron persuaded rapper Lil Wayne — real name Dewayne Carter — to perform at the college’s Assembly Hall during the annual Little 500 activities in April.
“I’ve been a fan of Lil Wayne for four or five years,” Barron said. “My friends have been talking about trying to get him to come to our campus for a long time. So, I decided to give it a try.”
