BRAG BLOG JEREMY BARNES – age 14 Jeremy is an awesome athlete and a great student who always gives a 110 percent all the time. He made a great team captain and loves football. I am proud to call him my brother, and I will be always be there to cheer him on! -- Heather Barnes

TEELA TEMME – age 14 Teela is a very accomplished rider and has been riding competitively since she was 8. She has 72 1st place trophies, in ribbons she has 97 1st, 125 2nd, 101 3rd, 69 4th, 55 5th, and 1 6th. Also won 6th and 7th in State competition, 5 Grand Champion and 4 Reserve Grand Champion in 4H, and many, many other Grand and Reserve Grand in local saddle club, and hi-point and reserve hi-point awards which I can forward to you. Mostly she is an inspiration to others and helps them build their confidence. She likes to win but is more interested in the friendships she develops and people she can help. -- Yvonne Temme JOSH PENDLETON Josh Pendleton has 344 yards rushing and SEVEN touchdowns in the Bosse victory over Harrison (score:43 - 34 ) for the Buehler Bowl Trophy, Friday, Oct. 16th.

I’m not sure where his performance ranks as far as EVSC or IHSAA records, but personally, it was the best single game performance I’ve ever actually witnessed/ and/or/ photographed by a high school football player, here in Evansville. Previously, the 297 yards and six touchdowns by North’s Derenzo Bushrod, in a Nov. 2000 Sectional victory over Vincennes, was the best performance I’d seen. Josh is also thinking about pursuing photography in college. -- Anonymous

LESLEY WILZBACHER – age 17 I picked Lesley Wilzbacher because she is not only my sister she is a amazing setter for central high school she stared varsity year freshman year and she was 3rd in the state she worked her butt off and really think she should be player of the month she has one more year and that is it. -- Lacey Wilzbacher
