New Coach in DM

Post by Bresquire »

DeeMack is hiring Canton's current Head Coach, Cody Myers.
Didn't know DM was looking for a coach, any details?

Job Lindbloom stepped down as coach, but remains on staff as a teacher. Heard several outsiders applied, but current staff were favorites to take over since no teaching position was open. Things changed I presume. IMO this is a great move to get Cody.

With the upcoming schedule, DeeMack needed this win. On road and beating Hal Chido couldn’t get any better than that!

Nice article on Tremont football today. Those from DeeMack who remember Zack said it would take four years to build a solid program at Tremont. Looks like it built it the Jim McDonald way, a big running back, strong line and defense. As for DeeMack, they have Ottawa Marquette on the schedule and OM has 4 teams from the HOI on their schedule. Did their conference go belly up?

Yeah, when you can get a 6' 2", 235 pound running back and a 6' 5", 230 pound tight end at a school Tremont's size, it certainly creates some challenges for defenses.

I've seen Tremont this year and those two are "As Advertised", both sides of the ball. They'd start for any team in the Mid Illini. I know I'd love to see 'em both in a Redbirds uni.

Not to slight any other Turks players, IMHO, as a team, they are for real and have many gamers!!

I attended the game last night at Dee-Mack's new football stadium and it was my first time at the new facility. The artificial turf with the DM logo in the center and red endzones looked outstanding. It is a very nice looking field. Add in the entrance gateway and ticket building along with the large concessions/restroom structure, this is a really nice facility. The pork chop sandwiches and popcorn were also top notch.

I agree. Dee-Mack did a very good job with the facility, especially considering their space constraints.

The LED stadium lights are also over-the-top amazing. I've been all over this state for HS Football, 1A-8A, DM Stadium only one I've been to with LED lights.

Along with Maroa-Forsythe, nicest small school football stadiums in the state. At least that I've been to.

Yeah, they're killer!! .......well, almost. :medic :help :gagl


FWIW, and I know DM folks will think I'm nuts, I love The Concrete Jungle better than the new digs.

Princeville and Chillicothe both have LED lights starting a couple years ago, even have the kickoff lights. Princeville has really upgraded their facility with a brand new 8 lane track, storage sheds, redone popcorn stand, etc... Great small school football atmosphere.


I think Pekin put in LED lights starting this season.

I believe the last time I went to a Princeville game was 2018 playoff. Upgrades were done after 2018 playoffs??

I believe 2019 was last time I went to IVC football game. Those are led's?? I didn't realize it.

FYI ... Been all over this state for HS Football, 1A-8A, Princeville best popcorn I have ever had(4 bag night) and most effeciently run concessions, IMHO. The system they have for cooking brats, chops, turkeys, etc, is a thing of beauty.

Thanks for the Princeville popcorn tip! 1 bag per quarter, nothing wrong with that. I can put away some popcorn myself. :bounce

Please stay away from the pork chop stand, my man!

Sorry … couldn’t resist. :P

Jon said pork chop was really good. It’s now called the GBG Chop! Great win last night against LeRoy. We were trying to figure out why LeRoy tried a fake punt with the lead, at their own 30 in territory midway in 4th quarter. It was blown up, DCM scored and held on for the win.
