Gridiron Blitz #8 - Winner Keeps Rolling

Every year, the Winner High School football program has high expectations. It is just the way things are in the city of 2,897 people in Tripp County. Putting out winning teams is what nearly always happens with the Warriors team, one of the powers in 11B football.

One of the most successful collegiate coaches of all-time - Frank Leahy of Notre Dame (107-13-9, 5 nationals titles - 1940, 1943, 1946, 1947, 1949) graduated from Winner High School. Leahy, who also played for Knute Rockne at Notre Dame, is just one of the many outstanding players and coaches to come from Winner which is located in the south central part of the state. 

No matter who is wearing the purple and gold, winning has always defined the Winner  football, one of the most successful 11-man programs in South Dakota with 12 championship appearances and five titles in the playoff era (since 1981). The Warriors won the first ever 11A title (over Vermillion, 31-21) in 1981 before moving later to 11B.

Over the past five-plus seasons, the Warriors have recorded at least 10 wins four times, recording a 59-5 mark.

"We have players that know what it takes to play well in big games, are competitive and love to play the game," said head coach Dan Aaker, whose team recently won two games in a span of four days to extended their winning streak to a state-best 18 games. In the most recent victory, 50-0 over Mobridge-Pollock, Winner provided Aaker with his 100th career win (100-29).

Besides the win on Friday, the Warriors recorded a 30-13 verdict over #3 St. Thomas More in a game rescheduled on Tuesday night (Oct. 8) due to the heavy snow storm that hit the Rapid City area two weeks ago.

In six games, Winner, which owns a 205-to-48 point differential, has generated 1,608 yards in total offense (268.0 per game), including 1,401 yards rushing on 221 carries or 6.4 per carry.

Aaker's bunch isn't a flashy group that puts up a myriad of points, although 34.16 per game isn't bad production. Rather, they are team that punishes opponents with a powerful rushing attack, led by Trace Meyer (606 yards), and a defense that doesn't give ground, or very little. Case in point, 11B #3 St. Thomas More threw the ball around (272 yards) but found getting into the end zone problematic in a 30-13 loss at Winner. Twice in the second half, the Cavaliers advanced deep into Winner territory only to be turned away without any points. They wear the title of defending champion proud and as several teams have already found out, knocking off the Warriors is a big chore.

Points Totals Continue at Rapid Pace  

So far in 2013, 318 teams have scored 30 points or more through seven weeks of prep football action in South Dakota. Last week, there were 53 schools, up from 43 a week ago, with 30 points or more. In 2013, 33 teams have scored over 60 points, including six this past week when both Avon and Waverly-South Shore reached the 70-point mark. A total of 95 teams have tallied 50 points or more (21 in week 7) while 230 (42 this past week) have scored 40 points or better. In terms of close games, seven games this past week went to the wire (eight points or less) with 60 "tight" games this season. And, the points are matched with a lot of standout defensive performances. A total of 87 teams have been shut out including 15 this past week.

Sudbeck Joins Growing List of Players With 350 Yards or More

For Kadoka Area Head Coach Chad Eisenbraun, a special performance by Chandlier Sudbeck in a 42-20 win over Stanley County last Friday was strictly football theatre. "He is an amazing runner and I had the best seat in the house," said Eisenbraun, of Sudbeck's career-best night in which he had 46 carries for 359 yards and six TDs. Sudbeck's performance joins a series of 350-plus efforts in 2013, including a season-high by Austin Dossett of Chester Area, who had 20 carries for 380 yards and six TDs in a 62-40 win over Baltic on Oct. 4. Others in the 350-yard club this year include Avon's Brandon Kocmich (61-1,351-21 TDs), with 15 carries for 378 yards and six TDs vs. Canistota on Sept. 27; Riley Hanson (136-1,462-22 TDs), with 31 carries for 361 yards and five TDs in a 45-32 win over Elkton-Lake Benton on Sept. 20; and South Central's Turner Serr's (99-1099-14 TDs in 2013) with 26 carries for 356 yards and four TDs in a 52-14 win over Andes Central on Sept. 13.  In his 13 years as the Kadoka Area Head Coach, Eisenbraun had never witnessed a performance like Sudbeck gave Kougars' faithful on a rainy and windy Friday night.  "No doubt, it was special," he said. "Chandlier is such a humble person, who holds strong to his faith," said Eisenbraun, who played on the 1994 Wall team that won a state title. "He began lifting in 8th grade and has truly made himself into a special athlete because of the work ethic he has in the weight room," he said. Sudbeck is also a standout in wrestling and track along with football. He is a member of the Badland's Brawlers (Philip Area Wrestling – coop with Kadoka, Philip, and Wall).  A year ago, he placed 2nd in state last year at 160 pounds and was 4th as a sophomore. Sudbeck has been invited to the Disney Duals in Florida two years in a row.  In addition, he placed second in the 300 hurdles and eighth in the 110 hurdles at the state track meet.  Sudbeck, who is being looked at by colleges including Chadron State, Augustana, Northern, BHSU, and Trinity Bible College, has 148 carries for 1,292 yards and 16 TDs on the season. Perhaps Sudbeck has been flying under the radar. He has career numbers that include 436 carries for 2,799 yards and 29 TDs. In addition, he has 24 receptions for 482 yards and six TDs while returning 38 kick or punt returns for 766 yards and two TDs. In all, he has 499 touches for 4,047 all-purpose yards. By the way, he has also played QB where he was 50-of-122 for 722 yards and seven TDs. So, the senior has totaled an impressive 4,292 yards in total offense.  Eisenbraun, whose team is likely headed to the playoffs for the fifth time in 11 seasons, says it is a privilege to coach this team and Sudbeck. "He has become a more vocal leader this year but the example that he has shown off the field is probably one of the neatest things about him.  He completely puts the success of the team ahead of any successes that he gets.  Chandlier understands how important the guys blocking are and is the first to say that's a big reason why he's been able to have the season he is having.  He's a rare combination of character, strength, speed, and vision."

Quintanilla Moves Up to 2nd All-time in 100-yard Games and 4th in Career TDs
Caden Quintanilla of 11AAA #1 Sioux Falls Lincoln (7-0) had 27 carries for 142 yards and recorded his 17th career 100-yard game in a 23-0 win over 11AA Harrisburg. Quintanilla now has moved into second place all-time with his 17 100-yard games rushing. For the second straight year, Quintanilla has gone over 1K rushing as he has 170 carries for 1,132 yards and 16 TDs this season (162-1,080-17 TDs, 2012). The Lincoln senior, who is the top rusher in 11-man ranks, has pushed his career rushing totals to 430 carries for 2,972 yards and 45 TDs.  The TD mark ranks fourth all-time. His 2,972 rushing yards ranks 17th all-time. In addition, Quintanilla has 4,972 all-purpose yards.

Flandreau's Slattery Returns KOR to House from 90 Yards; Kinzer Has Third KOR TD in ‘13

In Flandreau's 49-20 win over Vermillion on Oct. 11 at the DakotaDome, Ted Slattery had three TDs, including a 90-yard kickoff return for a TD. Interestingly, Slattery scored the first three times (TD runs of 12 and 65 yards and the KOR) he touched the ball against Vermillion. With Slattery's effort, there have been (at least) 10 kickoff returns over 90 yards in South Dakota prep football this year, including seven in 11-man and three in 9-man.  In addition, Colome's Terrance Kinzer had his third kickoff return (88 yards vs. Corsica-Stickney on Oct. 11) for a TD this year and his seventh kickoff or punt return TD in his career. Earlier this year, Kinzer recorded a 97-yard kickoff return for a TD (3rd all-time) in a 28-6 win by Colome over Andes Central. He is the only player in 9-man history with at least two 90-yard kickoff returns for TD (93, 2011; 97, 2013). 

Fourteen Teams Remain Unbeaten

In South Dakota this year, there are 14 (four in 11-man, 10 in 9-man) schools remaining with unblemished marks. With Pierre (5-1) losing in 11AA, just four teams in 11-man remain unbeaten. They include 11AAA #1 Lincoln (7-0), 11A #1 Madison (7-0) and 11B #1 Aberdeen Roncalli (6-0) and #2 Winner (6-0).  In 9AA, #1 Arlington (7-0) along with #2 Garretson (7-0) have undefeated marks. The 9A class includes unbeaten teams in #1 Howard (6-0), #3 Wolsey-Wessington (6-0), #3 Leola-Frederick (7-0) and unranked New Underwood (5-0). 9B has four ranked teams without a loss, including #1 Hamlin (7-0), #2 Avon (7-0), #3 Faith (6-0), and #4 Wall (5-0). 

Howard's Loudenberg Passes 3K in Rushing

Loudenberg, a 5-5, 140 pound junior for top-ranked 9A Howard, has had quite a run for the Tigers since the start of the playoffs a year ago. With three 200 yard plus games and 900 total rushing yards in the 2012 playoffs, he finished that season with a flurry. And, he has opened the 2013 with gusto as five games into the 2013 regular season, Loudenberg has recorded four more 200-yard plus games. As a result, he has had seven 200-yard games in the last 10 contests he has played.  In those 10 games, he has totaled 2,110 yards.  In 2013, Loudenberg has 125 carries for 1,210 yards and 23 TDs. The junior standout has a definite shot at the all-time rushing record at Howard HS, perhaps as soon as this year. Doug Carlson set the mark with 543 carries for 3,731 yards and 42 TDs in 2000-04. Loudenberg now has 321 carries for 3,005 yards and 41 TDs.

Deubrook's Hanson Nearing 5K in All-Purpose Yards; Leads State in Rushing Yards

With another 200-yard performance, Riley Hanson, he has led the 9AA #4 Dolphins to a 6-1 record with a state-best 1, 462 rushing yards on 136 carries with 22 TDs. With 17 carries for 211 yards and three TDs, Hanson led Deubrook to a 53-12 win over ORR. This season, Hanson has had 186 yards rushing or better in six of seven games, including over 200 yards three times.  He is one of the few athletes that will likely reach 5K in all-purpose yards along with hitting 2K in rushing and 1K in receiving as well as 3K in total offense. His career numbers include 223 carries for 2,218 yards and 33 TDs rushing; 49 receptions for 929 yards and eight TDs; 31 kickoff returns for 1,020 yards and 29 punt returns for 675 yards. Those totals give him 4,952 all-purpose yards or just 48 yards from 5K. He also has 46 combined TDs and 16 conversions for 292 career points, including 150 in 2013.

Roosevelt's Christion Passes 2,600 Career Passing Yards

Sioux Falls Roosevelt junior QB Taryn Christion continues to be arguably the most talented dual threat in high school football. Christion has totaled 93 carries for 710 yards and 12 TDs while completing 94-of-150 passes (63%) for an 11-man best 1,402 passing yards with 16 TDs and just five picks in 2013. Christion is already passing many of his statistical season totals of a year ago (99-170-1,566-11 TDs passing; 140-647-11 TDs rushing). In his career, the junior has completed 193-of-320 passes for 2,968 yards and 27 TDs with 223 carries for 1,357 rushing yards and 23 TDs. In other words, he has accumulated 4,325 yards in total offense and a combined 50 TDs. 

Colome's Kinzer Reaches 5K in All-Purpose Yards, Warbirds' Johnson Eyes 4K Rushing

Both Colome QB Terrance Kinzer and Wolsey-Wessington running back Ryne Johnson are leaving a mark on the gridiron. Both seniors have a shot at reaching 4K in rushing before the season is done. Kinzer has totaled 386 carries for 3,438 yards in his career. Meanwhile Wolsey-Wessington senior running back Ryne Johnson has 392 carries for 3,748 yards and 50 TDs as well as 4,363, all-purpose yards. To reach the top 10 all-time in rushing yards will require Kinzer and Johnson to reach 4,070 yards. That means Kinzer needs 632 yards while Johnson has to garner 322 yards. Johnson, who has scored 335 points, is the only active player in South Dakota with three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Johnson has 16 games career games with 100 yards or more while Kinzer has 14, including four games over 200 yards. Kinzer, who has a state-best 5,029 all-purpose yards, has 408 career points, which places in the top 15 all-time in terms of 9-man point production. With 54 career rushing TDs, Kinzer needs three more TDs to move into the top 10 all-time.

Baltic's Kyler Johnson Close to 3K Passing

Baltic's Kyler Johnson has gone over 1K passing for the second straight season. Johnson, who has completed 71-of-147 passes for 1,120 yards and 10 TDs, had 1,211 yards a year ago. For his career, he is 213-of-513 for 2,989 yards and 19 TDs. In addition, he has 215 carries for 735 yards and 11 TDs. Earlier he became one of the few players this year with both 200 yards passing and 200 yards rushing in the same game (Chester Area, 62-40 loss, 243 passing, 214 rushing).  Last week, he had 303 yards passing against Parker (64-36 loss).

Gortmaker Nears 2K Rushing and 3K in All-Purpose Yards

With 127 yards (19 carries) in a 46-20 loss to Hanson, Menno-Marion's Nick Gortmaker has surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the first time. Gortmaker, who had 813 rushing yards a year ago, has 136 carries for 1,030 yards. On the same night that he went over 1K for the season, Gortmaker passes 2K for a career. He has 370 carries for 2,041 career rushing yards and 27 TDs. He also sits just 65 yards from 3K in all-purpose yards (2,935). Gortmaker has 69-of-210 for 1,099 yards and 19 TDs. As a result, he has a combined 46 TDs in his career.

Madison's Trio Keep Churning Out Numbers

#1 Madison has been the top team in 11A this year, in part due to the play of a trio of senior standouts. Running back Rush Milne has 151 carries for 873 yards and 19 TDs in 2013, when he has had five games over 100-yards and a 53-carry, 233-yard, 5 TD effort in a 34-31 win over Tea Area.

QB Jacob Giles has reached 1,000 yards passing for the second straight year. A year agoh he had exactly 1K and this year has completed 68-of-126 passes for 1,190 yards and eight TDs. As a result, his career totals include 148 completions on 293 attempts for 2,190 yards and 16 TDs. In addition, Preston Nordling has been a standout with 26 receptions for 583 yards and five TDs this year. It gives him 45 catches for 796 yards and six TDs.

Sioux Falls O'Gorman (2-4), 14.5 #4 previously Also Receiving Votes – Sioux Falls Washington (3-4), 4.5, #5 previously

Trending: With five straight wins, Brandon Valley is one of the hottest teams in 11AAA. With all the conversation hovering on unbeaten #1 Lincoln and #2 Roosevelt, BV has quietly, sort of, gone about week-to-week improvement under the direction of head coach Chad Garrow. Since a 30-0 loss to Roosevelt in the opener, BV has outscored opponents, 202-to-80 with four games of 42 points or more. The Lynx, which averaged 33.7 ppg, is led by a junior quarterback making progress each week, a talented corps of receivers and a stingy defense.

He throws to a talented group of received, including three receivers with 20 or more receptions. They include Drew Reinschmidt (28-435-6 TDs), senior A.J. Garrow (25-177-4 TDs), who has 111 career receptions, and Alex Wilde (20-365-4 TDs). Riley Franzen (14-108-TD) is another talented receiver. Cam Holmes (73-405-4 TDs) is the primary ball carrier.  Another Lynx weapon is kicker Deven West, who has made 4-of-5 field goals, including a 52 yard boot. He is 24-of-25 on PATs.  In addition, the defense is making life tough on opponents. A week ago, Brandon Valley had two interception returns for TDs.

For the first time since 2006, Rapid City Central recorded a win over a Sioux Falls school for (Washington) in a 13-9 verdict over SF Washington, which dropped from the rankings for the first time in several years. Washington still retained support but fell out of the top five.  Of note is the performance of linebacker Dan Marlette, who recently signed with two-time national champion NDSU. Marlette (171T, 9.5 sacks, 2 int., 2 FF, 4 FR in his career) has 45 tackles, 12 TFLs and 5.5 sacks for a defense that has totaled 22.5 sacks this season. After putting up a 20-0 lead in the opening half at home, #5 O'Gorman, which fell from #4 to #5, dropped to 2-4 with a 29-20 loss to 11AA Watertown.

In the last three weeks, Yankton has a win over Pierre (29-26), O'Gorman (22-14) and Watertown (17-7), who they beat on the road in tough weather conditions. Another team trending is Watertown, which recorded a 29-20 win over O'Gorman, rallying from a 20-0 deficit to win an important road game. The Arrows, which won just two games a year ago, have passed that mark and sit at 3-3 overall with a home game against Mitchell on the slate. Senior Shay Bratland has provided the punch with 164 carries for 824 yards and nine TDs.

Yankton won for the third straight week and defeated Pierre for the third straight time overall and 10th time in 13 games between the ESD rivals. Despite a big edge in total yards (414-to-308), three turnovers hurt the Governors. Pierre's Alex Gray was 20-of-34 for 281 yards and two TDs. Brookings knocked off Mitchell, 21-18, in a key road ESD win as QB Carter Gordon connected with Tyler Madler on a 30-yard TD pass with one minute to play.

Trending: In 9B, four teams remain unbeaten, including #1 Hamlin and Avon, which stand 7-0 with one game left in the regular season. The other two teams are Faith (6-0) and Wall (5-0), both who have dominated in the west. Yet, right now Hamlin and Avon are garnering the most support as the top two teams in the class. The two teams may be on a collision course for the 9B title in a few weeks at the DakotaDome. Hamlin, which was 8-0 a year ago before falling in the opening round, has won 15-of-16 games dating to the beginning of the 2012 campaign. The Chargers own four playoffs titles, all while an 11B program. Avon, which owns four 9-man titles and has made seven title game appearances, has had a bounce-back season after going 6-4 a year ago.

They have generated 25 sacks, 13 interceptions and nine fumble recoveries. For Avon, directed by head coach Tom Culver (143-39, .786; 130-30, .812 at Avon), running and stop the run is the "Pirate Way." Avon has rolled up a 329-to-75 point differential, which breaks down to 47.0 to 10.7 ppg. Led by Brandon Kocmich (61-1,351-21 TDs), the Pirates have 260 carries for 2,582 yards for 9.9 per carry and 268.9 yards per game.
