As has been the case many times over the years, there is a lot of local flavor on the current Ball State football and men's basketball rosters.
On the gridiron, Norwell grad Curtis Blackwell is set to help anchor the offensive line this season. Blackwell started 11 games as a sophomore last year. His Cardinals open up the season with Indiana on August 31st.
It is unclear at this point when BSU basketball will open its season, but we do know there will be a trio of Northeast Indiana ballers on the floor when they do. Former North Side standout Lucas Kroft is set to join Carroll alum Kyle Mallers and Columbia City grad Brachen Hazen on the Worthen Arena floor this year. James Whitford and the Cards are hoping to bounce back from their first losing season since 2015.
