31 Wins In A Row

Friday night while Grandpa was watching our kids, Keith and I headed to Wahoo to watch the Norfolk Catholic High School football team play Wahoo High School.  This game was a match-up of #1 playing #3 in Class C-1.  It was supposed to be a great and close football game.  Each team was undefeated and playing well.  The game was a blowout.  Norfolk Catholic won the game 35-14.  The game was never close.  Our Knights dominated from the start and they never let up all nights. 

Norfolk Catholic is known for its high school football teams in the state of Nebraska.  This win was the teams 31st consecutive win.  This season they are trying for their third consecutive state title.  This team has many good players.  For example, Jordan Bellar is the punter and kicker.  During the game, he had a punt for 55 yards and every one of his kick offs went into the end zone for a touch back.  Also, he is the starting quarterback and defensive back.  Most teams in C-1 do not have an excellent kicker.  Some Wahoo fans made this comment, "I thought their all-state kicker graduated last year."  That comment is true.  Last year's kicker was outstanding also and did graduate, but his replacement is also very good.  Norfolk Catholic is blessed to have a kicking coach that is a former kicker in the NFL.  He is also an alumni of Norfolk Catholic and two years ago made the choice to move his family back to Norfolk and teach and coach at Norfolk Catholic.

At the game, we met up with our friends Andy and Sarah Harris and their two daughters, Lily and Jaclyn.  Andy works for Nebraska Public Power like Keith and used to be on the same crew as Keith.  Cara was even the flower girl in their wedding nine years ago.  Andy works out of the Lincoln NPPD office and Sarah teaches at Wahoo Public's Middle School.  They recently built a new house in Wahoo.  After the game, we went over to see the new house, have a few drinks and talk.  It was so nice to hang out with them again and see their beautiful new home.  Later we drove into Lincoln and spent the night.

Take care,
