Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down clyde · 248 weeks ago What Argonia-Attica why so small, what happened in twenty years? A larger town even lies between you. You both used to have plenty of kids, everyone could have played eleven man back then, no doubt now. But coaches at your small schools only needs nine starters for baseball, five for basketball and eight for football. Looks like they don’t need to look beyond the same select kids, and go begging to the rest! Hey this keeps them from making eleven guys popular in high school. Huh no wonder why they all keep shrinking. Football teaches kids under 6’3′ nothing. They will never play for an upper division college, so recruiters very rarely if ever come calling. Baseball was the great American sport where everyone had a chance to go big league, you didn’t need to be a giant and kids didn’t die. They may have got a black eye or broken bone once in a long while but it didn’t damage health or end kids lives for nothing. Football is child endangerment, child abuse licensed by the state and school districts. When kids play this rough at home the school staff has to notify SRS, then the state shows up to take you’re kids away.

II playoffs. The Conway Springs Cardinals were quickly ousted from Class 3A competition.The second ranked A&A Titans advance to battle Scandia-Pike Valley after beating Hartford 48-0 in front of a raucous home crowd in Argonia.Caldwell had similar success when it traveled to Crest to beat Colony-Crest 72-44.Both Sumner County victors play Saturday. A&A plays at Scandia-Pike Valley at 2 p.m. which is a three-hour trip north past Salina near the Nebraska state line.Caldwell, now 5-5, is home to play Axtell, a 46-0 winner over Lost Springs-Centre. That game starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday.As far as Conway Springs is concerned, the Cardinals season is over after losing to Wichita Collegiate 63-6.•••••A&A 48 Hartford 0A 69-yard touchdown pass from Alec McDaniel to Devon Newberry wrapped up the game in the waning seconds of the first half, marking the eighth consecutive game in which the contest was completed at halftime.McDaniel was involved in four of A&A’s touchdowns as the Titans took a 26-0 first quarter lead before adding 22 points in the second quarter. Hartford, in northern Kansas, had only one scoring threat midway through the second quarter. That was thwarted at the 10 on fourth down late in the quarter which led to the big passing play.Now A&A sets its sights on Pike Valley in the Class 8-man Division II second round.“They have a very good running game led by a sophomore running back,” said co-head coach Luke Greenwood. “They play a lot of smash mouth football.“We will have to play downhill on defense and fly to the football.”Greenwood said the Titans will also have to make their reads since they have some pretty good play-action off their power game.“Offensively, we are going to have block better than we did last night and we may have to open up the offense a little if they start packing the box,” he said. “Also, we have to take advantage of our opportunities when they present themselves.”For pictures of the game, click here.Caldwell 72 Crest-Colony 44Caldwell was only 4-5 going into the first round playoff game Tuesday night, but that didn’t seem to matter after it pasted Crest by 28 points. After giving up a 65 yard touchdown in the first quarter, it would rattle off three touchdowns to take a 20-6 lead.Crest came back to score two touchdowns to start the second quarter to take a temporary 22-20 lead. However, Colton Ward scored one of his six touchdowns with 2:50 in the half on a 38-yard carry to give Caldwell a 28-22 advantage at the half.The Bluejays would then score three of the four third quarter touchdowns and took a 50-28 lead into the final stanza. The Jays would never look back.“I thought going in that we had a good chance to control this game,” said Sean Blosser, Caldwell head football coach. “They really stepped up their game last night.Dakota Volavka had 186 yards rushing with three touchdowns. Colten Ward rushed for 152 yards and five touchdowns. See stats here: Box Scores for Caldwell @ CrestCaldwell has its work cut out for it this weekend when Axtell comes to town. Axtell if you remember was in Sumner County last year, losing to A&A in the semifinals.“They like to pass,” Blosser said. “They will come out in a spread formation, and throw the ball all over the field. They also do a lot of traps and quarterback draws.”Collegiate 63 Conway Springs 6The Cardinals were obviously overmatched by a team that trounced Wellington earlier in the season. Conway Springs got off to a decent start though when Colton Terhune threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to Josh Dugan at 6:01 in the first quarter to make it 7-6. But it was all Collegiate from that point forward. The stats can be found here: Conway Springs – Box Score Report – 11_4_2015Follow us on Twitter.last_img
