The last time AJ Jenkins touched the football in high school was a touchdown, of course. But his play that gave Wilcox- Hildreth the lead for good Friday in the Six-Man final was a pass that became a tip-drill touchdown for Clayton Nichols.
Wilcox-Hildreth and Hay Springs are very similar. Neither has a blemish after rolling through the season and playoffs with matching 11-0 records.
Hay Springs coach Josh Borm has gotten spoiled by Trent Reed. The junior back rushes for 200-plus yards with such frequency that it takes something out of the ordinary to make Borm take notice.
The Hay Springs and Morrill girls basketball teams both recorded wins Monday in the opening round of the Panhandle Conference Tournament.
After traveling over 300 miles for its first-round playoff game, Hay Springs was not welcomed with open arms by Bertrand. Instead, the Vikings took advantage.
When the 37th annual Sertoma 8-man All-Star Game kicks off this afternoon in Hastings, players from both the East and West squads will be looking to show off their individual skills one more time in a high school football game featuring many of the best 8-man senior players from across Nebraska.
