Since Hanover Central (Cedar Lake) is about 2 miles from Lowell, that's a lot of hardware from both towns that are very close to one another!

Mount Carmel's Mount Rushmore should be called Mount Weick for their legendary coach Bill Weick. Not many high school coaches are members of the Olympic Team Staff. If I recall, Bill was a coach on every Olympic staff from 1972-1988 and perhaps before that even.

I see Coach Weick quite often, he's at Brother Rice HS, still in the Chicago Catholic League. He's a legend for sure but our current coach John Kading is not so bad either, 4x NCAA D-1 AA at Oklahoma and National Champ. Gable cites Coach Weick as being one of the most influential people for him personally during his career. During the break at the CCL tournament, I gotta a chance to sit down with Weick and you could literally listen to him for hours, he's got stories on top of stories! LOL

I'll take a shot at Mater Dei.

 

Mike Goebel

Randy Helfrich

Blake Maurer - "modern era"

Chip Elderkin - "Old school era"

 

I think you would have to have both Goebel and Helfrich.  That leaves only 2 spots.  I think Maurer gets one based on being a 4x state champ.  That last spot could be debated for a long time and there are so many worthy contenders.

Who says your Mt. Rushmore can only have four guys on it?  Maybe MD's is just a little larger than some others.

Possible Prairie Heights faces (no particular order):

 

Aaron Ramey (state champ and 3rd place)

Travis Barroquillo (3rd place, 5th place and qualifier)

Danny Hamm (5th and 7th)

Toss up here: Mike Levitz (3rd), John Levitz (4th and qualifier)...maybe they could have wrestle-off for it

 

Many others to choose from, but this is pretty good start

Ah, Jim Blake, yes I believe he did. That was the late 70's, I will ask Todd tonight whether or not he place and if so, what place, as he was good friends with Jim. He came into the room a couple times when I was in high school, the guy was an animal on top. Columbia City is one of the few schools to have multiple placers but never had a state champ
