The Indiana Football Digest's Insider – 2015 Volume Ten

BY PAUL CONDRY AND MATT KOPSEA

HOT OFF THE PRESS

Indianapolis Bishop Chatard athletic director Mike Ford announced last Thursday that the team's regular season finale against Indianapolis Shortridge was cancelled. It would have been Chatard's first home game at the school's on-campus facility. Ford said Shortridge had safety concerns due to a limited number of players.

Lafayette Central Catholic ended West Lafayette's 11-game regular season winning streak with a 38-20 triumph.

Tri-Central completed its first unbeaten regular season in program history and captured the outright Hoosier Heartland Conference title with a 20-14 win over previously unbeaten North White. Other teams going unbeaten in the regular season for the first time are Northview and West Washington.

On the other side, Hammond Bishop Noll, Indianapolis Marshall, Martinsville, Marion, and Switlerland County went winless in the regular season for the first time.
