Center Grove’s football program literally will explore new ground this afternoon the instant three chartered buses whiz past the “Welcome to Ohio” sign.
Tonight’s game at Cincinnati La Salle marks the first time in 58 seasons of Trojans football a game has been played somewhere other than on Indiana soil.
With a share of the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference title assured, Center Grove could take a number of approaches once it sets foot on the all-weather surface of 5,500-seat Lancer Stadium. The most obvious being: Playing as many players as possible. Considering it’s a nonconference game and Class 6A sectionals begin next week, no one would blame CG coach Eric Moore for resting his starters for as long as possible.
