Driving against the Millard North defender, junior guard Reece Carson goes for the baseline basket. Carson would finish 14 points on the night, including the huge three to tie the game. “We just have to play to our strengths sometimes,” Carson said. “When we did, we scored and took the lead. Once we did too much and tried to get too fancy, we started to struggle.”

As students do their work throughout the day, this new schedule has created an unintended problem; which one of the four schedules do I have to remember to leave class. To put it mildly, four different bell schedules messes up everything for everyone, including teachers.

Senior guard Tag Carmichael squares up against a Bellevue East defender during his game against the Chieftains. Carmichael had three points in the 58-50 win, as well as three rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block. “My job isnt always to score points,” Carmichael said. “I need to go out and fight for those rebounds, but also get the ball to our playmakers.”

Senior running back Bobby Joseph sticks out his arm to break through for a big run. Joseph would have two touchdowns against Grand Island, helping propel the Cats over Islanders. “Our game plan was definitely to run the ball as much as we could,” Joseph said. “We were more physical than them, and our offense clicked because of that.”

Streaking down the sideline while getting his first Pick-6 of his career, senior defensive back Jace Ingebretson sprints towards the endzone to put the Wildcats up 42-14 over the rival Millard North Mustangs. “I made a play at the right time,” Ingebretson said. “I gotta give credit to the guys in front, and create an open lane for me to score.”

Leading the charge on defense, senior defensive back Jon Furgeson rips through the Millard West banner. In what could be the final “Millard v Millard game of his football career, Furgeson was an emotional leader both on and off the field. “It was a pivotal moment for us, especially going into district play,” Furgeson said. “It was important to get that win, especially falling short against Millard South. That win felt good.”

Senior linebacker Easton Behrens celebrates after a big hit on Prep junior quarterback Tony Coniglio. Behrens and the Wildcat defense hit the Jays behind the line of scrimmage over ten times, and had a sack himself. “Coming into the game I wanted to blitz more,” Behrens said. “With the way the game went, I was happy I got the nod to rush after the quarterback more and more, and hope I can do it some more in future weeks.”

Mettelstedt, and the entire Wildcat defense held Circo to just 135 passing yards, and the rest of the Viking offense to 97 rushing yards. “I knew the pressure would eventually get there,” Mettelstedt said. “We are very talented up front, so as long as we followed through, we would hit home and make those plays.”

Phones have become a huge problem in schools, but it almost seems like instead of allowing a new learning opportunity for both students and teachers, it has instantly become shut down and seen as the biggest distraction for schools. Allowing students to hold onto their phones makes them learn self control, and would help them learn valuable skills before they go out into the real world. Photo by Logan Moseley.

Head coach Steve Frey holds up the Metro Conference plaque for his team to see. “It’s pretty cool to win that,” junior infielder and Creighton pledge Nick Ventiecher said. “But it’s just another step to get to the bigger stage. We are a lot younger team this year, but we can still win it all.” Millard West won 10-6 over Q-Street and district rival Millard South in the championship round of the tournament.

During Millard West’s 74-66 loss to Elkhorn South, the Wildcats found themselves in a position to pull ahead, but were unable to do so. Junior Jordan Gassen (5), senior Zac Grandgenett (22), junior Cooper Fortune (23), senior Peyton Moore (12) and senior Jaden Giaus (14) all were crucial in the teams upset-watch game against the Storm. “We had so many close games throughout the season, each loss was a tough one every single time,” Gassen said. “I was happy we were able to finally get that win against Omaha Central. All of our seniors this year have been great teammates, and it was a pleasure playing with them, and I will miss you next year”. Though the team went 8-15, there is still a lot of promise going into next year.

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.

Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder (left) and Phoenix Suns owner Rovert Sarver (right) have been in the news for all of the wrong reasons. The environment they have created for their team has negatively impacted their respective leagues. The worst part is these are just two more recent examples. Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was accused of similar actions between both Snyder and Sarver. Both LA football team owners Dean Spanos and Stan Kronke have made controversial decisions, with the Rams being sued by the city of STL. Louis and being forced to pay for their move to the city of angels. All of these owners and more have shown that the owners of some of the most profitable entities in the world, cannot control and use their power for good.

For their final home game of the season, the Millard West Wildcats (green) took on the Bryan Bears (white) in a senior night matchup. After the half, many of the younger players got more experience playing valuable snaps. “Just coaching up the younger guys and giving them pointers is big,” senior linebacker Reid Hazen said. “All you can really do (when not playing) is coach them up and try and help them out as much as you can.” Millard West will continue their five game win streak against Lincoln Southwest on Oct. 28, at Seacrest Field in Lincoln.

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.

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.”

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
