    I hope the search committee will now seek out a young, ambitious winner that believes in a modern day spread offense as the way to success. Someone who can teach his knowledge of the game to each individual player to make them and the program the best they can be. Someone who can work with all the coaches in the lower grades to begin pulling everyone in the same direction toward building a winning program that both players and fans will be proud to be a part of.

    Thank you Coach Lowery for sharing your love of the game with the boys and the La Porte Community. Your energy, passion and knowledge will be missed. Wishing you best of luck at West Washington, they are a very lucky school. We appreciate everything you have done while here.

    Maybe next time who hires coaches at Laporte will get it right. . I had a flash back to when Stan retired It took two hires to get it right Maybe they need to ask New Prairie how they do it. Get it right , hire someone who wants to be part of our community.

    In the 22 games he coached, LP won 7 and lost 15. Over that span, LP scored an average of 14.77 pts/game and gave up 25.55 pts/game. These averages are bolstered by a 56 to 9 beat down of Munster (3 wins and 27 losses over the past 3 years). Take away this game and LP scored an average of 12.81 pts/game and gave up 26.33 pts/game. I don’t know the coach…he may be a nice guy, but a football coach he is not.

    Coach Lowery has been a blessing for La Porte football and if anyone has anything bad to say about him is absolutely not true at all. He has given these kids some life lessons that they will forever remember those lessons. The La Porte football community wish him the best

      There are plenty of coaches that can teach valuable life lessons and win significantly more then 31.8% of their games. Taking a deeper dive into the stats…of the 7 games won, 6 of them came against teams with losing records. Michigan City had 4 wins and 3 losses in 2020. They did not play Valparaiso or Merrillville due to the pandemic…2 likely losses. They also did not play Crown Point, which could have gone either way, giving MC a likely record of 5-5 or 4-6 if they had played a full schedule. Additionally, LP was shut out in 4 of the 22 games. Of the points they did score, many of them came in garbage time…the other team had pulled their starters and LP left in their 1st string…scoring against backup players. This town used to know what a good coach was. Anyone remember Ken Schreiber? How about Stan Klimczak? Even Bob Schellinger was a far cry better. Will anyone remember this coach in 5 years? Forget about it.
