This Mishawaka Memory is presented by: Celebrations Palace. 1974 was a special year for Mishawaka. The Maroons won the Northern Indiana Conference and finished 10-2 with kids like Scot Shaw and Tim Dawson playing their hearts out. The Cavemen and Head Coach Bill Doba made it all the way to the 3A State Final. A few Assistant Coaches that year were John Danaher, Larry Stillson and Al Smith. Mishawaka battled to the end in the state championship but fell short 19-12 against Indianapolis Washington. Tonight we celebrate the 45th anniversary of that magical season.
