Once-in-a-lifetime season for Scheierman, Huskies has final chapter to illustrate

The name Scott Frost elicits an uplifting facial expression for nearly every Nebraskan when he’s brought up in conversation. Imagine breaking one of the current Husker coach’s high school state football records.
Aurora senior Baylor Scheierman has a claim to one of the Husker legend’s marks.
Scheierman now has the most total yards in Nebraska high school football state history with his efforts throughout the year, and that’s continued throughout the playoffs.
Frost’s total yards record that stood for nearly three decades added up to 3,727, including both rushing and passing yards.
Scheierman broke that mark Friday night in the second half and by the end of the night, had more passing yards on the season than Frost’s total in 1992.
When asked about Frost postgame, Scheierman’s facial expressions immediately changed as a grin creeped across his face. However, as he’s done all year, he was quick to pass the accolades to his teammates.

Giltner's state aspirations dashed in five-set thriller

The D1-5 district final was as exciting as it was nerve-wracking. No. 5 seed Nebraska Christian danced with No. 12 seed Giltner in Aurora and it was the Lady Eagles who stood on top after five sets to punch a ticket to next week's state tournament in Lincoln with match scores of 25-23, 13-25, 25-13, 21-25 and 15-10. Giltner's season comes to an end with a 22-9 overall record.

Giltner forced a fifth set and it was Nebraska Christian who asserted themselves early on, taking a 5-1 lead and eventually an 11-4 advantage. The Lady Hornets fought off three match points but the gap was too much to overcome. 

For a second straight year, there will be zero area teams represented at the state tournament in Lincoln.

Following an upset of BDS a week ago, the Osceola-High Plains Stormdogs ran out of magic Wednesday in a 66-26 loss to Lutheran High Northeast in the second round of the D-1 football playoffs. The two teams virtually traded score for score for much of the first half as the Eagles led 20-6 after the first and pulled away late in the second to take a 38-18 lead to the half. 

Junior quarterback Dylan Soule had 100-yard games both in the air and on the ground, rushing for 134 yards while passing for 131 more. Keaton Van Housen was riddled by injuries throughout the night, but still recorded 80 receiving yards and 51 rushing. The Stormdogs finish its inaugural season with a 5-5 record.

Huskies roll in Round 1

Aurora’s high-powered offense was firing on all cylinders Friday in a 61-6 opening-round playoff win over Arlington.
The No.-1 ranked Huskies scored on six of seven first-half possessions while the defense shut down the Eagles running game, making it a lopsided contest that was decided in the early going.

Allen gets first Big Red catch

It’s not like he hasn’t been open before this season, and in some cases, wide open, and it’s completely understandable because Adrian Martinez is a true freshman, having been on campus for less than a year. But it was sure nice to see former Husky Austin Allen get his first catch of his Husker career Saturday during a 45-9 blowout of  Bethune-Cookman on a chamber of commerce-like fall day.
The win wasn’t unexpected, to say the least, but how Nebraska approached the makeup game, and how the first units executed, and how backups got significant minutes, was the real story of the day.
Head coach Scott Frost called last Thursday’s practice the best they’ve had, not only in Lincoln but also when the staff was at UCF. And boy did it show early on, Martinez carving up the Wildcat defense with precision passes, then letting Devine Ozigbo do the rest on a 14-yard gallop right through a couple arm tacklers on his way to the end zone with just 2-1/2 minutes gone by.
