Get to Know ’19 Target: Ivory Winters

Written By: Kris Shankle (@Hoosierkris)

It all started when Ivory Winters was just a kid trying to have fun with his friends in the Clevelands apartment complex. They created a game called “killer”, where someone would take the football and throw it up as high as they could. Now whoever caught the ball was by himself against all the other kids, which at times ended up being as many as fifteen kids. The object then was to take on all these kids and find a way to score a touchdown before the other kids tackled you and had to start all over. “Killer” became the reason he fell in love with the game of football. It also taught him life lessons he never knew would end up helping him in the moment.

After much anticipation all spring leading up to today, the Indiana football team concluded its spring practices with their annual spring game. Unfortunately, looming threatening weather kept the game from being played outside and was instead played in Mellencamp Pavilion’s indoor practice facility. The game was closed to the general public and instead allowed only a small crowd of the player’s families and media. The standard spring game format was utilized in the first half of play, as the Cream and Crimson squads (drafted earlier this week) faced off and the special teams units were given an opportunity to put points on the board at the conclusion of quarters. A final score was declared, with Team Crimson defeating Team Cream 37-28, at the end of the first half. The second half utilized a running clock and teams were split into offense and defense.
