Little Axe: Tony Smith back in, home games TBA...
By Robert Przybylo
When will it stop for the Little Axe athletic program? The Indians have been through so much in the last couple of months and really have a heckuva lot more to still overcome.
The last time I checked in with Little Axe, the future was still up in the air and Jason Wheeler was excited about the future of the team.
Well, checked in with athletic director Paul Elkouri, and Wheeler is out and former coach Tony Smith is back in the saddle.
Wheeler has taken a job in DeSoto, Texas, and Elkouri said there are no hard/bitter feelings about it. Wheeler’s wife is from around that area, and it made all the sense in the world for him to accept the spot.
Can’t see it being too hard of an adjustment since Smith has been the leader of the resurgence of the program, but the Indians still have more issues to deal with.
Elkouri said at this point, it’s all about insurance money. Oy, everybody knows how that goes and you have no idea when that will get all settled.
He said, obviously, the bleachers, scoreboard and lights need to be replaced after all were destroyed in the tornado May 10.
The playing field is actually pretty good, but the bleachers will be an issue as Elkouri said it could take as long as two months for that project to be complete.
