His job had taken all over the US and Canada setting up these huge lifts. Racing was perhaps his greatest hobby! He was extremely talented, involved from the ground floor of building the car, doing the mechanics to racing the car. Hobe and his family traveled to different places in the US enjoying racing and just being together as a family. As he grew older, he followed NASCAR racing on television, shouting the loudest for Jeff Gordon which was his favorite.

How would you like to coach a team made up of these 5 players? Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett (Park Tudor High School), Northwestern’s Bryant McIntosh (Greensburg High School), Indiana’s James Blackmon (Marion), Ohio State’s LaQuan Lyle (Evansville Bosse), and Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan (Homestead). As you can see, all 5 of these played their high school ball in Indiana.Two of these players were in Batesville’s regional lineup. They were Bryant McIntosh and LaQuan Lyle. Another interesting fact is that most of these still have more than one year of eligibility left.I found a lot of this information from an Indianapolis Star article. It makes it a lot more interesting watching college games when you easily recognize some of the players involved because they played their high school ball in schools near you. It will be fun watching these athletes play this year, because they all play in our area.

Everybody is talking about IU graduate Yogi Farrell. For the start of this year’s NBA season he was playing in the NBA Developmental League. Farrell was drafted by the New York Knicks but was recently traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Due to injuries on the Maverick roster, Yogi was called up with a 10-day mini-contract.This mini-contract was suddenly changed to a 2-year deal after Farrell poured in 33 points in one of his early games. The diminitive Farrell was believed to be too small to play in the NBA, but when you are quick and can shoot you can play basketball no matter what the league is. It is hard for a Purdue graduate to talk positively about IU athletes, but Yogi Farrell is definitely the real thing!
