*Dylan Plautz (QB) to Caleb Schweigart (WR), Sam Parsonage (RB), Jaden Kohls (RB) – Omaha Westside – The 43-39 Omaha Westside win over Lincoln Pius X taught us dual things. 1). If we were we were gloomy of heart, we substantially shouldn’t have been there and, 2). Lincoln Pius X can play football with anybody in a Class A ranks.
Trailing 33-28 with usually 2:48 left in this baby, a Warriors pulled some Brett Froendt magic, scoring twice during a dual notation span. Following Chris Cassady’s 5 yard TD run that put a Bolts adult 33-28, Westside fashioned a 7 play, 68 yard scoring expostulate that consumed usually one minute, 55 seconds.

Lenz, twice a 1000 yard rusher, has scooted for 1,450 yards and 26 TDs in 9 games. The fugitive senior, who dresses out during usually 5-7 and 147 pounds, is really discerning off a ball, possesses good open margin speed, and has an impossibly prolonged walk for being so brief in stature.
Landon is also a good defensive player, logging 32 stops this season, to go along with 4 interceptions.

Coach Dave Ridder, who usually finished his 14th deteriorate during a West Point prejudiced school, has constructed so many blue ribbon, absolute 1000 yard using backs, that would make we swear there’s something in a H2O fountains adult there during Guardian Angels CC high school.
Jared Minnick, along with Tanner Hass, and Nate Hass, are two-time 1000 yard rushers, though names like Cody Stelp and Chris Strehle preceded Minnick in that Bluejay backfield behind in a day and are usually partial of a abounding tradition during that institution.

Jordan Kelber has strike 56% of his 165 passes this tumble for 1,494 yards and 18 TDs. Kelber is really mobile in that Valentine backfield and means to chuck on a run really good and many importantly, is a genuine group leader.
And that Valentine defense….good grief! They hold Sutton’s Chandler Stone, a 1,399 yard rusher, to usually 23 yards on 11 carries, nonetheless Valentine’s stats prove a reduction 11 yards. Anyway, that infamous Badger “D” pressed Sutton to a balance of 27 rushing yards and 192 sum yards for a game.
