Cavs will take on Knox at CCHS Homecoming 2015

Culver Citizen

Friday night is Homecoming for the Culver Community High School Cavaliers, and of course that means all the accompanying festivities will take place as well. That includes the longstanding tradition of the school's Homecoming parade, with lineup at the school starting at 3:30 and the parade taking off at 4 p.m. and heading through downtown Culver and back again to give the community plenty of chances to cheer on the Cavs. Of course the Homecoming halftime show and queen crowning will take place during the game as well.

The team will face off against Knox this week, and our sports editor, James Costello, did a "deeper dive" piece (including coach comments) in the Sept. 24 Pilot News previewing the match-up. For those who missed it, the entire edition can be yours for 75 cents at, but some excerpts:

After scuffling to an 0-3 start and suffering through a slew of injuries, Culver Community finally seems to be on a roll.

The Cavaliers come into Friday’s Hoosier North Athletic Conference game with Knox riding high on back-to-back wins over West Central and Triton, and they’re looking to keep the momentum going against a team that is better than its one-win record suggests.

With Everett Krueger still sidelined for the next couple weeks, Josh Krsek will continue to play behind center along with sophomore Ben Myers. The Cavs will continue with direct snap-type runs from Krsek — who put up 114 rushing yards last week — but Lance Beaver has also emerged as a threat out of the backfield, running for 111 yards and three touchdowns in the win over Triton.

For Culver, the challenge will be trying to stop Knox senior back Jake Krause, who has recorded more than 100 rushing yards in all but one game this year. The Redskins will also air it out if they have to — in their Week 4 loss to Starke County rival North Judson, quarterback Drew Dan threw 14 passes for 137 yards — so Culver’s defense will need to stay disciplined.
