Former Tippecanoe Valley football coaches Charles Smith and Scott Bibler, Smith's son Scott and champion racecar driver died in a plane crash in Oconee County, South Carolina, Friday.
There were multiple reports of a plane crash in South Carolina Friday night and that the flight emanated from Warsaw and that there were no survivors. Federal Aircraft Registration details reported that the plane, a Piper Saratoga, was registered to Smith Family Aviation LLC, Warsaw.
Connor McLochlin ran for 142 yards and a touchdown, and Alec Holland also ran for a score, and the Rochester football team staved off a Tippecanoe Valley second-half rally to win 17-10 and retain the Bell at Barnhart Field Friday.
The 29th Bell game is the one that will live in infamy.
Rochester defeated Tippecanoe Valley 17-10 Friday to keep the Bell in black and gold for another year, but that became unimportant when news spread throughout RHS' Barnhart Field that a plane had crashed in Oconee County, S.C.
Not to worry, Zebra fans. Gavin Bennett did not reinjure his toe late in a 35-12 loss to Northfield last week. He simply lost his shoe and had to exit the field while some sideline help helped put the shoe back on. In fact, RHS coach Mike Zehner said Bennett, while not 100 percent, is feeling as well as he has since initially suffering the injury against John Glenn on Aug. 21.
