Senior Chase Hultman rushes the ball late in the game. Hultman had a very solid game, totaling three touchdowns and 196 rushing yards on 25 carries. “I would like to think we have had success running the ball all year,” assistant coach William Sadowski said. “Coach Pete has done a good job calling plays and the offensive line has put forth work.”

Due to COVID the student section had been gone for some time. In its return they’ve made national headlines, being featured on many verified sports accounts like ESPN, Overtime, the Checkdown and USA Football. “It is nothing but school spirit in the student section,” senior Brooke Sliva said. “Sometimes it gets a little crazy, you bump into the person next to you and                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 by the end of the game your voice is completely gone.”

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

Although the Wildcats were down by 31, they still played with speed and kept pushing. They were able to stop the pass game near the end of the third quarter and kept it that way. “The game was out of reach by the start of the 4th quarter, but you have to take advantage of the game reps and try to get better and continue to compete,” coach Seth White said. “I think our players kept competing in the 2nd half and played much better.”

The game was long fought and the pace was changed many times throughout. Although Millard West took a loss, they don’t look back and keep their heads up for next week. “I like to think our team takes on the personality of our head coach, assistant coach William Sadowski said. “I dont think we ever feel out of a game. We dont hang our heads, and we keep grinding away.”
