Hawks face a challenge in Marquette pass catchers

1

KENOSHA — You get the feeling that even if the Indian Trail football team was facing the likes of Jimmy Graham, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall, the Hawks’ defensive backfield would still be confident and eager to take on the challenge.

Marquette won’t be trotting out any future NFL Hall of Famers when the teams collide in the second round of the WIAA Division-1 playoffs Friday night at Hart Park, but the Hawks will be trying to limit some of the best pass catchers that the state has to offer.

“For this game specifically, we’re trying to eliminate the two receivers they have,” Indian Trail junior free safety Josh Weyand said. “We figure that if we shut them out then it should be a pretty easy game.”
