7th Grade Football Team

The 7th grade football team posted a record of 1-4 on the season with their lone win coming against the Eagles of Eagle Grove in a 40-20 battle. The season was very competitive each week and all games were decided by a narrow margin. Due to limited numbers, the 7th grade team members competed not only in their 7th grade games, but all season they also played against 8th grade opponents and displayed an ability to play up and compete at a high-level. These individuals showed tremendous improvement from the first day of practice through the last game and there is a promising future in store for this group of student athletes. Coach Englert, Coach Ewing, Coach Wubben, and Coach Steinhoff are very proud of the effort and commitment that all members of the team contributed this season.

8th Grade Football Team


The 8th grade football team ended the 2018 season with a record of 0-5. This record does not reflect the time, effort, and commitment the 8th grade team demonstrated over the past two years. The quote, “Never lose, either win or learn,” would be a fitting summary for this team. Despite battling limited participants the past two seasons, the core group of players has stuck together, competed each practice and game, and gotten better as individuals and as a group. Team members have learned a lot about the game of football and also about themselves as they were tested mentally and physically each week by opponents including: the Gaels of Saint Edmond's, the Eagles of Eagle Grove, the Indians of Pocahontas, the Jaguars of Southeast Valley, and the Raiders of East Sac County.

Keep in shape!
