CINCINNATI – The City of Lawrenceburg, with a little help from the Cincinnati Reds, honored a true “Hometown Hero” during Tuesday night's game at Great American Ball Park.

Paul (P.G.) Gentrup, 67, a combat veteran of Vietnam who has been a tireless advocate of fellow veterans since his retirement five years ago, drew a standing ovation from the crowd of 33,153.

The former Sgt. Gentrup of the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division (the famed Tropic Lightning Division), based at Cu Chi, South Vietnam, from August, 1967, through August, 1968, and 1965 Lawrenceburg Consolidated High School graduate was hailed in a brief ceremony Tuesday.

After the final out in the second inning of the Reds' 3-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, Gentrup took his spot atop the home team dugout for the brief ceremony, doffing his cap and returning salutes from other veterans in the stands.

Of course, a two-minute introduction didn't begin to tell Gentrup's story.

GREENSBURG – South Dearborn High School graduate and former Knights assistant coach Josh Benjamin was hired as head football coach at North Decatur in February.

Benjamin, 29, who still resides in Moores Hill with wife Helena, an English teacher at Batesville, opens practice with the Chargers Monday, Aug. 4.

“I would definitely consider this a rebuilding year, a learning year, for all of us,” Benjamin told The Greensburg Daily News.

He succeeds Garry Sauley, who resigned after last fall's 2-8 campaign. Sauley posted an 8-12 record in two seasons at the Chargers helm. Plagued by injuries and with dwindling numbers, North Decatur ended last season with just 14 active players.

INDIANAPOLIS – Appeal of Indianapolis high school basketball star Eron Gordon's ineligibility for the upcoming season is set for Tuesday, Aug. 19.

The Indiana High School Athletic Association ruled Cathedral's Eron Gordon ineligible after his transfer from North Central to Indianapolis Cathedral.

Despite approval by administrators at both schools, IHSAA commissioner Bobby Cox said the situation demanded further investigation.

Cox added that principals and athletic directors aren't actually "signing off" on a transfer, but are making a recommendation to the IHSAA.

“We believe it's as blatant of an athletic transfer as there's ever been,” Cox told The Indianapolis Star. “I don't know the motivation behind the schools recommending what they did. But it's not what we discovered in making this ruling.”
