High school football: Warren Central QB Williams leads Warriors to 28-21 win over Ben Davis

indystar.com — The Warren Central athletic administration might want to consider a song to play over the loudspeakers to signify Mykelti Williams' arrival at quarterback. Maybe something along the lines of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" for former New York Yankees' great Mariano Rivera. Different sport, same idea.

Guess what weapons are illegal in Indiana?

indystar.com — Earlier this week, an Indianapolis man was charged with shooting his neighbor's cat several times with a blow-dart gun, killing it. He was preliminarily charged with beating a vertebrate animal, but not for his unusual choice of weapon. That's because in Indiana it's perfectly legal to own a blowgun, even though in some states, such as California, they're illegal.

Bishop Chatard cruises past Cardinal Ritter 49-0

indystar.com — The Bishop Chatard football team didn't waste any time putting last week's loss to rival Cathedral behind them. The Trojans scored early and often en route to a 49-0 win against Cardinal Ritter Friday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. A week after getting stuffed for just 16 rushing yards against the Cathedral Irish, the Chatard offense exploded for 271 rushing yards.

Is Pep Hamilton's offense right for the Colts?

indystar.com — Offensive balance. Power formations. Three-tight end sets. In Indianapolis, where Peyton Manning made 4,000-yard passing seasons practically passe, the mere mention of such terms is near sacrilege. But, like it or not, there are games when this is a Colts fan's reality under coach Chuck Pagano and offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.
