Atlantic returns home for tough test against Greene County


October 11th, 2019 by Chris Parks

Trojan LogoThe Atlantic Trojans face a tough test in their homecoming game tonight. The Greene County Rams come in undefeated at 6-0 and are currently ranked as the 6th best team in Class 2A in the latest Radio Iowa Poll. Coming off a 28-7 loss to also top-ten ranked OABCIG last week, the Trojans will try to find some consistency.

Atlantic started well in the loss to the Falcons last week, forcing a fumble of the opening kickoff and putting a touchdown on the board right away to lead the game early. That lead was taken back by halftime due to the great play of OA-BCIG quarterback Cooper DeJean. The Trojans face another solid quarterback this week. Brent Riley has thrown for over 1,300 yards and leads a balanced attack.

That’s Atlantic Head Coach Mike McDermott. Colby Kafer has rushed for 996 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Rams, and Carter Morton rounds out that three-headed monster at wideout with 25 cathces for 610 yards and 8 scores. Greene County has also had an effective defense so far this season, only one opponent has scored more than 22 points on the Rams. Coach McDermott said a low scoring affair is quite alright for the Trojans but they will need to win the field position battle.

The Homecoming festivities begin this afternoon at the high school with Coronation and a Pep Rally from 12:15pm-1:15pm. The Homecoming parade in downtown Atlantic will begin at 2:30pm. The Rams and the Trojans kick off at 7:00pm at the Trojan Bowl.

Midwest Sports Headlines 10/11/19


October 11th, 2019 by Ric Hanson

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

UNDATED (AP) — A curse-filled clubhouse victory speech by St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt that went viral after a player posted it on social media showed a different side to the usually mild-mannered skipper _ and while he was sorry that his colorful language got leaked, he did not feel bad about the gist of his message. The NL Central champion Cardinals are getting set to host the wild-card Washington Nationals for Game 1 of the best-of-seven NL Championship Series.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The relationship between Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Texans counterpart Deshaun Watson goes back well beyond the 2017 draft, when along with Mitch Trubisky they were considered among the best prospects at their position. Now, two of the bright young QBs in the league will square off when Houston visits Kansas City on Sunday.

UNDATED (AP) — This is not an easy year to be an offensive coordinator in the Big Ten. The conference includes the top four teams in the FBS in scoring defense: Wisconsin, Penn State, Iowa and Ohio State. Move over to the yards-based total defense stat, and those same teams occupy four of the top five spots. Advanced stats also give high regard to the defenses at Michigan, Michigan State and Northwestern.

UNDATED (AP) — The Nittany Lions expect to run into their first real challenge in Kinnick Stadium where the Hawkeyes will try to rebound from a close loss to Michigan in their Big Ten opener. Both teams are propelled by top 10 defenses.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — David Perron’s second goal of the game proved to be the winner as the St. Louis Blues beat the Ottawa Senators 6-4. Oskar Sundqvist, Jay Bouwmeester, Brayden Schenn also scored for the Blues. Ryan O’Reilly had a goal and three assists and Jake Allen made 25 saves in his season debut. Vitaly Abramov, Artem Anisimov, Chris Tierney and Anthony Duclair scored for the Senators, who are off to their worst start after losing three straight games in regulation.

Homecoming for Trojans this week, former players asked back next week as well


October 10th, 2019 by Chris Parks

Homecoming for the Atlantic Trojans is upon us this week against the Greene County Rams. One of two opportunities left to see Atlantic play at the Trojan Bowl before changes are made this off-season. The homecoming parade will be at 2:30pm in downtown Atlantic and the game kicks at 7:00pm.

Many former players will likely come support on homecoming night and Atlantic officials want them to return for a special event next week. The final home game on the 18th against Shenandoah at 7:00pm.

Atlantic activities invites all former Atlantic high school football players to attend the last regular season football game in the Trojan bowl on October 18th. At the conclusion of the game, a large group photo of past and present players will be taken down on the field. They hope to see many former players there!
