New North Harrison football coach Greg Burton thinks that knowledge of the game of football is important, but he sees something else as just as important.

Borden All-Stars State 1st Runners-Up PDF Print E-mail

It all happened in a place called Hope...Hope, Indiana that is. Among farmland scattered with silos and miles of cornfields, a dream came true for the Borden 12-year-old boys baseball team. They became the first Borden Youth League Boys team to advance to a state championship game.
“If you build it, they will come” is a famous line from the movie “Field of Dreams”. Coach Justin Vollstedt did just that. He built a team that focused on teamwork and building individual skills to enable this team of boys to believe in themselves and their potential. He took a team of boys and taught them baseball and life skills. Coach Vollstedt focused on hard work, respect for leadership, perseverance and putting individual difference aside to benefit the team.
The team practiced for two and a half hours every evening in 90-100 degree temperatures for weeks preparing for the district championship tournament. Borden advanced from the district tournament to the Indiana South State tournament. Advancing to state competition was a milestone reached by only one other Borden team in recent history.
At the State tournament in Hope, Indiana, Borden (pop. 818) faced teams from larger cities, including Vincennes (pop. 18,701), Sullivan (pop. 4,617) and Linton (pop. 5,774). After pool play, Borden emerged as a #7 seed out of 8 teams. Borden defeated #2 Sullivan, who entered the tournament with an impressive 23-0 record, in the first game of tournament play. Borden then defeated #3 seed Linton in the next game to advance to the state championship game. Borden lost to #1 seed Vincennes in the final game with only nine players and exhausted pitchers.
The Borden team would like to thank all the noisy fans who brought cowbells, vuvuzela horns and cheers of encouragement to the tournaments. The parents and players give a special thanks to the coaches this season: Head Coach Justin Vollstedt, Coach Brian McCormick and Coach Alan Thompson for their commitment to the team.
Many years from now, the players on this team will look back to a hot summer day of their youth, when they worked together to beat the odds. A day remembered with a smile, as they recall a dream that came true in a place called Hope.
