Sophomore Reese Wilson gets ready for a face off against his opponent. Wilson, the captain on the team, leads the team with nine goals and five assists on the season, good for 14 points on the year. “After losing in the state finals last year in triple overtime we were determined to come back stronger even with the loss of six seniors,” Wilson said. “This forced us to work even harder and bond on and off the ice.” The Wildcats take on the Junior Jays for their last game of the 2022 calendar year on Wednesday, Dec. 21st.

Matt Rhule, the newly hired head coach for Nebraska Football, was the first of many in this years head coaching cycle. Other coaches that were hired, and potentially in the eyes of athletic director Trev Alberts include Deion Sanders (Colorado), Hugh Freeze (Auburn) and Luke Fickell (Wisconsin) to name a few. However, Rhule brings the highest floor compared to those coaches, as he has built programs from the ground up, and leaving it in good hands if, or when, he leaves.

MWHS 23: Road to glory

November 14, 2022
When Jon Willis first stepped onto campus at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, he didnt know what he was in for. Two years later, hes made improvements he wouldnt have anywhere else. “My boss at KRVN Jayson Jorgenson has impacted me the most,” Willis said. “If you listen to how I sound and broadcast a game before I started working there and after, it has completely changed. He has given me so much feedback and taught me how to become a better broadcaster, and Im incredibly lucky I have gotten to learn from him.” Photo courtesy @jon_willis_ on Instagram.

A career winning percentage of .340 is never good, but when you take a previously winless team such as the University of Central Florida Knights, and even as far as claiming the National Championship in 2017, you would expect nothing but the best for the new program that he would be running. What followed suit was five straight losing seasons, and a man 15 million dollars richer. Urban Meyer (bottom left), Thomas Brown (top left) and Matt Campbell (top right) all could bring the program back to relevance, something the Nebraska native couldn’t do.

Kieren Langer heads down the hillside, coasting down and regaining his stamina. The downhills are some of the more technical parts of mountain biking, and one of his strong suits. “The main difference from the slow race to the actual race is the pedaling, you actually pedal more,” Langer said. “The downhills in the main race is where I excelled, which really shows the technical skills aspect of cycling, and mountain biking specifically.”

For sophomore Noah Blair, so much time and effort was put into his state run, both mentally and physically. In his Instagram bio, a simple message. #LLAS. “LLAS is for a buddy of mine who passed away this past season,” Blair said. “Him and I grew up wrestling together and competing against each other.” With the motivation to win it for his friend, Blair’s story will surely be one for people to look up to for years to come.

On Feb 13, two of the National Football League’s best battled for a chance of a lifetime, a chance to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Los Angeles Rams of the National Football Conference and the Cincinnati Bengals of the American Football Conference, both the four seed in the playoffs, had unlikely paths to Sofi Stadium. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp (10) and defensive back Eli Apple (20) constantly saw themselves in this game, and Kupp’s score in the final two minutes against Apple sealed Cincinnatis fate.

This is my roster in the game. There is on the top left a 23 and a coin icon. These are “coaching credits”, the games currency and you can earn by progressing in the game or paying money. The yellow bar is your cap space. That is how much money you can spend on players, a feature separate from CCs. The bottom shows your teams overall and its morale levels, and the green bar under the players shows their health. The little icon by a player shows their awards on your team, and the background is what side of the ball they play. Blue for offense, red for defense and orange for special teams

Sophomore quarterback Brody Peterson during warmups before his next game. Commenting on fellow sophomore Jackson Williams, and the rest of the year. “The back half of the year is the part that really matters the most,” said Peterson”. “I feel like teams dont know Jackson yet and hes such a playmaker and we can use him all over the place on special teams and offense.” Williams is the main target of Peterson when he is on the field, as the two have combined for over 800 yards

The Bishop Sycamore team had a lot of effort put into it to fool both the players of their team and themselves. If the font wasn’t a minor red flag, this was taken from their HUDL page, and while the newest highlight is from 2019, it is safe to assume that this was an elaborate scheme, Ill be very creative.
