We got a great nomination this week from Troy regarding the New Holstein Huskies. As Queen Latifah once sang/rapped: U-N-I-T-Y…that’s
In an Eastern Wisconsin Football Conference opening game featuring two
rival teams located only 6 miles apart, the New Holstein Huskies ran with a
mission over the Kiel
Raiders. The Huskies won 48-24 in their
first conference win since 2010.
The Huskies ran with a chip on their shoulder and exploded for 553
yards on 67 carries or 8+ yards per carry.
The offense obviously carried their load, but the defense faced a battle
with a returning unanimous all-conference running back in Kiel’s backfield. The Huskies defense rose to the occasion and
did their job, holding Kiel’s
running game to 58 yards on 24 carries!
This was an electric night, fueled by an awesome display of Huskies team
unity, solid blocking by the O-line, a stingy D-line, 2 rushers over 150
yards. Fans went out in full force on
the Huskies side. There was even an RV
in the parking lot for New Holstein students to
tailgate. This was electric! This was high school football in its finest
hour. Congratulations to Coach Matt Rupp
and your staff on building a team. Please
consider the whole New Holstein Huskies
varsity football team for the WIXX Preps Pick this week.
You’ve got it, Troy. Well played!
Good luck at Kewaskum tonight and good luck to all of our area
teams. Keep the nominations coming HERE and don’t forget to tag your Instagram pics at all of your games: #WIXXPreps.
