UW-Whitewater football player Manny Jones was told if he worked hard in the offseason, his playing time would increase. But the amount the 5-foot-10 sophomore wideout from Indian Trail has received so far has exceeded even his expectations.
“You have to pinch yourself when you go out there, but it’s settling in now,” he said. “I’m starting to learn my role and I’m just going from there.”
Jared Wenberg threw three touchdown passes to Armani Carmickle and ran for another score as the Indian Trail football team pasted Racine Case 41-20 in a Southeast Conference game at Jaskwhich Stadium on Friday night.
The Hawks scored the game’s first 21 points in improving to 3-0 in the SEC to keep pace with Franklin, which defeated Oak Creek (3-1 overall). Case dropped to 0-3 and 0-5.
Friday’s 40-0 victory over visiting Racine Park may or may not be Indian Trail’s first official win of the season.
Whatever the WIAA decides about the Hawks’ season-opening contest against Germantown (Indian Trail led 21-7 at halftime when the game was halted due to weather), Friday’s result was definitely a “W,” as the Panthers (0-3) were held scoreless for the third time this season.
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Wofford’s Michael Roach, an Indian Trail graduate, collapsed during a football game against Tennessee Tech on Thursday night.
In the third quarter, Roach, a junior who started at outside linebacker, collapsed near the Terriers’ bench and was treated by members of the athletic staff, team doctors and EMS. He was administered CPR on the field before being transported by ambulance to Cookeville Regional Hospital.
There were plenty of accolades to go around after Wilmot’s 64-7 thumping of visiting Cudahy on Friday.
Included in the praise was the work of the Panthers’ talented underclassmen who have helped their team post a 2-0 record in a pair of non-conference contests heading into Friday’s Southern Lakes Conference opener with defending co-champion Waterford.
