RAMBLIN’ RECK: Linton the last Valley team standing

TERRE HAUTE — Then there was one … and it is Linton.

The Miners meet Scecina this week in a Class A semistate football game with the winner earning a spot in the state finals against Sheridan or Lafayette Central Catholic.

 Scecina defeated North Vermillion last week in one regional game while Linton bested West Washington. North Vermillion was one of the other teams in the area still alive in the postseason.

In Illinois, Belleville Althoff edged Casey 19-17 in a Class 2A contest. It was a tough, tough defeat for the Warriors, the last team in the area to lose in Illinois.

Congrats to Casey and North Vermillion for super seasons. Players from the area were among the leaders in Indiana stats released before last week’s games.

 In passing, Austin Karaszia of Linton was third, completing 205 of 288 passes for 2,945 yards and 40 touchdowns, while Payne Fortner of Sullivan was 10th, completing 168 of 304 passes for 2,355 yards and 17 touchdowns.

 In rushing, Chase Vanschoyck of North Central was fifth with 1,944 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Dante Rehmel of North Central was fifth in solo tackles with 109 and third in tackles for losses with 27 while Brett Gierke of Greencastle was 10th in sacks with 11.

In interceptions, Cole Bradbury and Koye Kaiser of Linton were tied for third, each with seven.

Good starts — Missouri Valley Conference and Big Ten men’s basketball teams are off to a good start.

MVC teams went 6-2 in the first two days with Evansville losing to Notre Dame and Indiana State to UCLA. The Irish and UCLA both are ranked in the early polls, with UCLA 10th in at least two of them.

Purdue was nipped by Bucknell in its opener but bounced back to beat Hofstra. Michigan State is ranked in the early polls and lost to unranked Connecticut 66-62.

In Valley games this week, ISU is at home to Winthrop tonight and to Truman State on Saturday. Illinois State opens the season at home against Santa Barbara and Southern Illinois is at New Orleans in its first game. Wichita State is at VCU tonight with ESPNU carrying the action. San Diego State has been ranked in most polls and will be at Missouri State on Saturday.
