Schedule stays tough for football Rams

September 12, 2017 6:16 am

Greene County faced one of Class 3A’s most difficult schedules in 2016 and it shaping up to be that way again this season. The Rams had the second highest opponents’ winning percentage among the 64 programs in 3A in 2016. So far this season, Greene County is 0-3 with losses to Kuemper Catholic (Carroll) (2-1), Harlan Community (2-1), and Dallas Center-Grimes (3-0). The Mustangs are ranked in the top three, and 3-0 Webster City visits Jefferson this week with a top five ranking. The Lynx are coming off a State Playoffs runner-up finish last season and they’ve won all three games by 14, 21, and 22 points this season.

Webster City is coached by Iowa High School Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame coach Bob Howard, who taught and coached in Scranton in the late 1970’s. His 1978 Scranton team qualified for the playoffs. Coach Howard has had 25 teams in the playoffs and has three State titles to him name when he was in Sigourney.

The Lynx are averaging 37 points and 430 yards per game, most of that on the ground using the “Single Wing” offense that most programs abandoned decades ago.

Coverage Friday night on KG98 and www.raccoonvalleyradio.com starts at 6:30 p.m. with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. in Jefferson at Linduska Field.
