JCC Football in the State Quarterfinals Tonight in Class AA vs Caledonia
It's the battle of two undefeated teams as JCC will take on Caledonia tonight in class AA State football quarterfinals. It was a goal and an expectation to get back to the State Tournament and Head coach Tom Schuller says they can thank their depth for that.
It will be the first real big test of the season for the Huskies and head coach Schuller says they will have to find a way to deal with Caledonia's speed.
Schuller says the Huskies, especially the offensive line, will need to play their absolute best tonight.
We hear from head coaches all the time throughout the season but Kempson Cross was able to catch up with some of the JCC players this week so we thought we would change it up a bit. Roman Voss, who is a sophomore and starts at QB for the Huskies, says that even though he got a late start to the season, he is ready to go.
Caledonia definitely has some guys with great speed, but Voss says the Huskies will also be able to show some speed on the field tonight.
Senior Seth Stai who is one of the leaders on this year's team, says the Huskies are like a family.
Senior Bryson Powers says the Huskies have definitely made huge strides since the beginning of the season.
Senior Brenan Runge, who had to start at quarterback at the beginning of the season due to Voss suffering and injury to his hand, also echoes the sentiment of family.
