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.

Defensive tackle Hudson Meier and linebacker Braedyn Kiger rally to sack the South Sioux City quarterback. Millard West’s defense was attacking all day and held the Cardinals to just 49 total yards. “It feels great when the defense is able to get the shutout,” sophomore Jake Blackman said. “It gives us the confidence that we can lean on the defense to keep us in the game when the offense is struggling.”

The Wildcats were able to secure their first win early in the season. Coaches saw a lot of improvement from the first 2 losses to Millard South and Omaha North. “We didnt really do anything outstanding - everyone just did their job on each individual play,” said coach Kirk Peterson. “In terms of improvement - fundamentals - games are won when teams are fundamentally sound - line up correctly and know and complete your assignment in all three phases of the game.”
