MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Fans lined up early Saturday morning to send the Mishawaka Cavemen off to Indianapolis for the 4-A Indiana State Championship in football.

At least one former player whose son is quarterback Sam Schrader remembers his time as a player on the Cavemen football team.

"I played in the early 1980s. I played wide receiver at Mishawaka," said Joe Schrader. "We were never able to get down here to get down to that game. We're just so happy for the kids, so happy for the community, so proud of my son and the whole team."

Mishawaka played Indianapolis Cathedral.And the mascot for Catherdal is the Fighting Irish.
