McKay steps down as Indian Trail football coach


For the first time in program history, the Indian Trail football team will have a head coach other than Mike McKay.

McKay, who’s guided the program since its inception in 2010, resigned from the position, the school announced in a press release on Friday.

Carmickle, Gessert honorable mention All-State in football


Indian Trail senior receiver Armani Carmickle and St. Joseph senior defensive back Alec Gessert were selected honorable mention All-State by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association, it was announced on Monday.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Carmickle caught 53 passes for 864 yards (16.3 average) and 11 touchdowns. Those were the most touchdown catches by a Kenosha County wideout and rank second-most among Southeast Conference receivers, with Franklin still to play one more game in Friday’s WIAA Division-1 state championship.

Local SEC teams in good position


Franklin is the only Southeast Conference team remaining in the WIAA Division-1 football playoffs.

But when the 2016 All-SEC team was announced on Monday, Bradford, Indian Trail and Tremper scored some lofty honors right on par with the conference-champion Sabers.

Kenosha all over All-SEC picks


When the 2016 All-Southeast Conference football team was announced on Monday, Kenosha County was well-represented.

Bradford received 16 total first-team, second-team and honorable mention selections — just one behind SEC champion Franklin’s 17 for second-most in the conference — Indian Trail totaled 11 and Tremper racked up nine.

Horlick overwhelms Indian Trail

RACINE — When the Indian Trail football team played Racine Horlick two weeks ago, it saw plenty of Rebels star running back Joe Garcia.

But on Friday night, Garcia was back for an encore — and his second act was just as good as his first.

Oak Creek nips Indian Trail

Oak Creek went for two points and the win and converted with 42 seconds left Friday night to nip host Indian Trail, 29-28, in a Southeast Conference football game.

The Hawks (5-4, 4-3) entered the fourth quarter leading 28-14, but Oak Creek (6-3, 4-3) scored with 11:10 left and then got the winner to become playoff eligible.

Michael Roach is doing just fine, thank you.

When we last visited the Indian Trail graduate he was stepping away from football.

MMQB: Lancers not worrying


St. Joseph’s chance to win its first conference championship since 2005, when it was a member of the now-defunct Lakeshore Conference, is all but over following the Lancers’ 24-13 loss to Racine St. Catherine’s on Friday night at Ameche Field on Friday night.

While St. Catherine’s (6-2, 5-1 MCC) clinched at least a share of the Metro Classic Conference title with the win, St. Joseph (5-3 overall) dropped into a three-way tie for second in the eight-team league at 4-2 with Greendale Martin Luther (6-2 overall) and Racine Lutheran (5-3 overall).

Hawks can’t keep pace with Racine Horlick

RACINE — If you’re a fan of offensive football, Horlick Athletic Field was the place to be Friday night — because there was plenty.

Indian Trail and Racine Horlick combined for 1,160 total yards and 98 points, but it was the Hawks who came out on the short end of a 63-35 Southeast Conference setback.

Leading Off: An early prep football playoff primer


If you haven’t gotten out to see a county high school football game yet, there are plenty of playoff and conference title implications with two regular-season weeks remaining.

Monday Morning Quarterback


If you attended Indian Trail’s Southeast Conference game against Franklin at Jaskwhich Stadium on Friday night and didn’t notice Indian Trail senior defensive lineman Daviyon Nixon, then you must’ve either had your eyes closed or spent copious amounts of time purchasing concessions.

Even though the Hawks lost 30-6, the 6-foot-5, 289-pound Nixon — an NCAA Division I Northern Illinois recruit — was arguably the best player on the field.

Franklin thumps Indian Trail


For years, area coaches have incurred cold sweats preparing to defend the perennially potent Franklin offense.

It was the other side of the ball that caused Indian Trail to suffer a long, rainy nightmare against the Sabers on Friday night.

Indian Trail seeks rare win over Franklin


Friday night, the Indian Trail football team will attempt to do something that no Kenosha County team has done since Sept. 2, 2011, and no Southeast Conference team has done since Sept. 19, 2014.

Beat Franklin.

A confusing finish for Bradford, Indian Trail


From the opening ceremonies to the final play, Thursday’s inaugural game at Mary D. Bradford Stadium was packed with nonstop action.

It was interrupted, however, by a lot of confusion during a critical sequence on Bradford’s last-gasp drive, which ended in a missed field goal as Indian Trail held on for a 41-38 victory.

The first football game ever played at Mary D. Bradford Stadium may remain the most exciting for quite some time.
