Ex-Red Devil Clunis in national championship game with UW-Whitewater


While chasing opposing quarterbacks is nothing new for Kevon Clunis, doing so in the Stagg Bowl will be.

Clunis, a Bradford graduate, and UW-Whitewater (14-0) will face Mount Union (14-0) in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl for the NCAA Division III national championship at 6 p.m. Friday in Salem, Va. The game will be televised live on ESPNU.

The 6-foot-3, 197-pound Clunis wears No. 92 for the Warhawks and serves as a situational pass rush specialist primarily on third and fourth down. The sophomore has seen his playing time increase as the season has progressed and has recorded eight tackles and a sack during Whitewater’s postseason run.

KENOSHA — A near-perfect first quarter was all that the playoff-bound Indian Trail football team needed on Friday night.

Red Devils’ state title run fuels Hawks


KENOSHA — Two years ago, the sophomore football players at Indian Trail — then playing a junior varsity schedule — couldn’t help but notice Bradford.

After all, the Red Devils were playing their home games on Indian Trail’s field at Jaskwhich Stadium.

Case’s big plays sink Bradford

RACINE — Watching the Bradford football team Friday was like watching a man repeatedly attempt to construct a house of cards during a toddler’s birthday party.

No matter how much diligence, hard work and patience the Red Devils employed on offense to score their points, Racine Case instantly tornadoed Bradford’s efforts to the ground time after time in dealing the Red Devils a painful 40-35 loss in a Southeast Conference game at Hammes Field.

Bradford can’t slow Franklin

FRANKLIN — The first time around the block has not been much fun for first-year Bradford football coach Matt Rizzo.

Bradford bests Park


The outcome wasn’t decided until the closing seconds and was probably a bit closer than it should have been, but ultimately all that mattered to the Bradford football team Friday night was the big numbers on the Jaskwhich Stadium scoreboard: Bradford 26, Racine Park 18.

Bradford opens with a toughie


KENOSHA — Debuts don’t get any more daunting than this one.

The Bradford football team, with first-year coach Matt Rizzo at the helm, kicks off the 2013 season with a non-conference game against defending WIAA Division-1 state champion Arrowhead at 7 tonight at Taraska Stadium in Hartland.

Bradford aims to keep it rolling


KENOSHA — If you plan on attending a Bradford football game this season, don’t forget to pick up a program upon walking through the gate.

Along with a new head coach on the sideline in Matt Rizzo, the Red Devils should have plenty of unfamiliar faces on the field as they try to uphold their recent winning tradition.
