INDIANA CUTTERS FOOTBALL TO PLAY BENEFIT GAME FOR LOCAL VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER
The Cutters will play June 12th at Edgewood High School to benefit local Emergency Medical Technitian Jeff Hockett. Jeff is also a member of the Jake Dodds Band and Jake will play a show prior to kickoff.
Here is a little about Jeff and his recent successful battle against cancer, this was written by a friend of Jeff's and posted on Facebook.
Jeff was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma November 7, 2014. In July of 2015, Jeff was told by doctors in Indianapolis that this cancer was going to take his life and there was nothing left for them to do. Shauna and Jeff loaded up on a plane that was provided by their parents and traveled to the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Jeff received a stem cell transplant that came from his brother, Benjamin Hockett the fall of last year, and we are ECSTATIC to share that Jeff is CANCER FREE!!! Hence our #MiraclesStillHappen motto. The faith that Jeff and Shauna possess is nothing less than amazing in the eyes of their friends. When they could have easily given up, given in, and let go - they prayed harder, they dug their feet in, stood up taller, and fought tirelessly. They fought together to save Jeff's life, and with the help of the community, family and friends, endless prayers, and continuous faith - God showed this town what He CAN do!!!
In addition to the show by Jake Dodds, there will be a silent auction, face painting and a fully loaded concession stand.
Indiana State Representative Peggy Mayfield will conduct the coin toss for the game.
Jake Dodds Band will sing the National Anthem.

Cutters Start Season on the Right Foot
The Indiana Cutters opened up their Minor Leagues Football Association season Saturday against the Marion County Rockets. This game marks the start of the tenth season for the Cutters, and the team hopes to make their eighth playoff appearance come seasons end.The Cutters led the entire way and took charge of the game from beginning to end on their way to a 34-12 victory away from home.
The team has aspirations of relying heavily on their running game, and that's exactly what they did Saturday night.The Cutters cut through the Rockets' defense, running for 165 yards on 35 carries, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. Jamar Johnson led the way for the Cutters, running for 90 yards and a score on 10 carries.To keep those running lanes open for Johnson and others, the Cutters established a bit of a passing game despite the unexpected departure of former starting quarterback Robbie Colon.The Cutters overcame that adversity and question mark by taking advantage of their five completions in the game.The competitions accounted for 81 yards and two touchdowns to help widen the gap between them and the Rockets.
The staff and players are happy to be 1-0 on the young season, but there are also may improvements to be made heading into their next game. One point of emphasis to improve upon is penalties. The Cutters had seven penalties against them accounting for 105 yards on Saturday night. If the Cutters can clean up those penalties for the remainder of the season, expect offensive drives to be more fluid and the defense to get the opposition off the field more consistently. While the development of the quarterback position continues, the Cutters will look to continue using Johnson and the rest of their backfield as the backbone of the offense heading into their home opener. Johnson and the rest of the Cutters now have a couple weeks of preparation before hosting the Tri-City Outlaws on Sunday, June 12 at 11 a.m. at Edgewood High School.
