KENOSHA — Climbing Mount Everest would be considered gutsy.

Executing a fake punt on fourth-and-20 from your own 19-yard line while nursing a four-point lead with just over two minutes to play?

Indian Trail opens football season with a victory

KENOSHA — Three solid quarters were good enough for the Indian Trail football team on Thursday night.

Clinging to a one-possession lead, the Hawks turned away Plymouth on its final four drives and held on for a 27-19 season-opening victory in a cramp-filled, non-conference matchup at humid Jaskwhich Stadium.

KENOSHA — The Indian Trail football team will get a jump-start on the 2014 season when it hosts Plymouth in a non-conference game at 7:30 Thursday night at Jaskwhich Stadium.

While most season openers will be played on Friday, the Indian Trail-Plymouth matchup is one of 25 openers scheduled for Thursday night around the state.

Hawks try to keep it rolling

KENOSHA — While some public address announcers outside of Kenosha still annoyingly refer to the school as Indian Trails, the Indian Trail football program made a name for itself in 2013.

In just their second varsity season, the Hawks won their first seven games and were ranked as high as No. 3 in the state by WisSports.net (and No. 6 by the Associated Press) en route to finishing 5-2 in the Southeast Conference and 8-3 overall. Two of those losses came against eventual state runner-up Franklin, including a heartbreaking 17-14 defeat in the second round of the WIAA Division-1 playoffs.

Hawks join Signing Day festivities

KENOSHA — National Signing Day included the Indian Trail football program for the first time on Wednesday.

Xavier Ciardo, Zach Gianakos and Michael Roach became the school’s first college scholarship football players when the trio signed National Letters of Intent for their respective institutions.

Roach commits to Wofford

Michael Roach did just about everything for the Indian Trail football team over the last couple seasons, so it was no surprise that he became the first Hawks football player to receive a college athletic scholarship.

Roach verbally committed to FCS (formerly NCAA Division I-AA) program Wofford College on Sunday after making an official visit to the Spartanburg, S.C., school with his parents, John and Tricia Roach, over the weekend.

Indian Trail falls to Franklin

FRANKLIN — High school football doesn’t have the benefit of instant replay, but there were a number of purple-clad players, coaches and fans who would have loved to have gotten a second look at the go-ahead touchdown on Friday night.

Franklin quarterback Sean McGuire, Kenosha’s No. 1 nemesis, somehow crossed the goal line from one yard out on fourth down with 2 minutes, 16 seconds remaining as Indian Trail fell short against the Southeast Conference champion Sabers, 17-14, in the second round of the WIAA Division-1 playoffs at sloppy Jerry Marsh Field.

Indian Trail braces for rematch with Franklin

1

KENOSHA — As one might expect, every player on the Indian Trail football team was crushed after the Hawks suffered a 28-21 loss to Franklin three weeks ago at Jaskwhich Stadium.

The bitter defeat — Indian Trail’s first of the season — allowed the Sabers to clinch the Southeast Conference championship that the Hawks so badly coveted.

KENOSHA — Go big or go home.

Competing in its first postseason contest, the Indian Trail football team lit up the scoreboard with a seemingly endless supply of highlight reel plays in trouncing Southeast Conference rival Oak Creek, 52-28, in the first round of the WIAA Division-1 playoffs Friday night at Jaskwhich Stadium.

Home cookin’ to start the playoffs

KENOSHA — As a reward for their stellar regular seasons, Kenosha County’s three postseason football qualifiers won’t have to take any long bus rides in the opening round of the playoffs.

Indian Trail, Wilmot and St. Joseph all received first-round home games when the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association revealed its playoff seeds and pairings on Saturday afternoon.

RACINE — A warning to the Indian Trail football team’s first opponent in the upcoming WIAA playoffs: You will be facing a team filled with extremely ornery players who may have smoke coming out of the ear holes of their helmets.

Indian Trail suffers first loss

KENOSHA — The Indian Trail football team’s hopes for a Southeast Conference championship and undefeated regular season were dashed by an opportunistic defense on Friday night.

Franklin picked off three second-half passes by Indian Trail quarterback Zach Gianakos — all inside the Franklin 10-yard line — as the Hawks fell short, 28-21, in a thriller between the SEC’s two unbeatens before a Homecoming crowd of 5,000 at Jaskwhich Stadium.

The big game: Franklin vs. Indian Trail

When I contact a local athlete on the phone — with the coach’s permission, of course — my initial introduction is sometimes met with hesitation or apprehension.

Earlier this week, Indian Trail senior defensive end Xavier Ciardo was not expecting my call.

The Hawks gained one spot in the Associated Press poll, which was released Monday.

KENOSHA — The Indian Trail football team was coming off a postseason-clinching victory over rival Bradford. The biggest game in the short history of the program was looming the following week.

It was a wicked combination that concerned coach Mike McKay.
