New high school to open on West Side


evsclogo

***HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!***

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — The Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation made a surprising announcement at last night’s school board meeting. By a 4-3 vote, the EVSC has decided to add a second high school for the West Side of Evansville.

The new school, to be named Byers High School, will be built on land not yet currently owned by the corporation near USI and will most likely open in the fall of 2016. Construction could start as early as this fall.

“This is a great day for Evansville and the West Side,” according to EVSC attorney Matt Shoulders. “While the West Side didn’t necessarily need another high school, we foresee much growth in this part of town in the next few years. Naming it after one of the West Side’s most loved figures [Herman Byers] was a no-brainer.”

How the new Byers High School will affect F.J. Reitz and the EVSC district boundaries has yet to be discussed, but more importantly, how this will affect Reitz football is very much up in the air.

“This is certainly news to me,” admitted Panther head coach Andy Hape. “Will they play at Reitz Bowl? Should we play them instead of Mater Dei for the Nut Club trophy? Which of our kids will wind up at which school?”

Also there has been a lot of speculation that Tony Lewis, the former Reitz head coach, will return to the West Side to lead Byers.

These are questions that cannot be answered, at least for the time being. All that is known is that things are going to be getting very interesting on the West Side here in the next few years.

Two Panthers Honored at 2014 Griddy Awards


Griddy

Jordan Summers and Malik Higgins were honored Sunday night at the 2014 Griddy Awards held in Indianapolis at the Farm Bureau Football Center.  Jordan Summers was honored as a Big School All State selection which is selected out of all class 4A, 5A and 6A schools. Malik Higgins was introduced as a Indiana High School Football Prime 25 Player which is selected out of every high school in Indiana that participates in Football.

The Griddy Awards were held for the first time in 2007, at the Indianapolis Colts® practice facilities and pavilion in Indianapolis. Although it was the first year, the concept started well before that first event.

Indiana High School Football authority, Paul Condry, and his team at the Indiana Football Digest as well as Regional Radio Sports Network collaborated with the Colts organization as well High School coaches to create a celebration of Indiana High School Football once per year. This event would become the Oscars® or ESPY’s® of football in Indiana.

Each year, over 400 attendees to this banquet and award ceremony gather together to recognize the best players, coaches, and media representatives in Indiana High School Football. These award recipients are chosen after a panel of media and coaches review over 18,000 varsity players in Indiana.

Football in Indiana is the passion of student athletes and their families, communities and schools from North to South and East to West. The sport has been played in Indiana since the 1880′s and the Griddy Awards carries on the tradition of recognizing the importance of the team sport of football in Indiana High Schools.

Congratulation to both Jordan and Malik on their prestigious awards.
