New Prairie football

Ian Skornog will be one of the key skill players returning next season for New Prairie, which will begin a search for a new head coach with Russ Radtke’s departure for Portage.

So where does New Prairie go from here?

The school hit it out of the park back in 2010 when it was able to hire Russ Radtke away from Griffith. Now that the Indiana high school football coaching legend and his 368 wins are going to Portage, Cougars Athletics Director Ben Bachmann and a soon-to-be formed selection committee are tasked with finding a successor who can keep the program rolling in the right direction.
