WARRENSBURG (WCIA) -- A football team's success often comes down to one thing; how good the offensive and defensive line play is. That's the case at Warrensburg-Latham, where the Cardinals have five multi-year starters, a big reason the team is out to a perfect 4-0 start under first year head coach Aaron Fricke.
CLINTON (WCIA) -- The Clinton football team is 4-0 to start the season, it's a significant number for the Maroons. The program has only won four games three times in the last 13 years. To make it even more impressive, the team is doing it under first-year head coach Chris Ridgeway.
FISHER (WCIA) -- The Fisher football team is big game hunting this Friday night. The Bunnies (4-0) host Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley (4-0) in a battle of unbeaten teams. Fisher has two upset wins to its name in head coach Jake Palmer's third season, taking down Tri-Valley two weeks ago. Last season, the Bunnies knocked off Deer Creek-Mackinaw, both squads have won state titles in the last five years. Fisher will get another chance to take down the champs against GCMS, the Falcons win the Class...
PLEASANT PLAINS (WCIA) -- The Pleasant Plains football team is proving that anything can happen in sports. The Cardinals made it all the way to the state title game last season, despite starting the playoffs as a 16 seed. Now with a new head coach, the team is looking to continue its belief from last season into the Friday Football Fever Spotlight Game of the Week at Maroa-Forsyth.
WCIA -- St. Teresa quarterback Jack Hogan is the Friday Football Fever Play of the Week winner. The junior found a hole in the Bulldogs' win at Tuscola, ending the Warriors 34 game regular season winning streak. Hogan and St. Teresa got more than 225 votes.
MAROA (WCIA) -- In Josh Jostes' 19 seasons as Maroa-Forsyth head coach, he's only had six starting quarterbacks. Five of those six have been three-year starters, with junior Ian Benner is the most recent name on that list.
