They seem to be getting better each week, gaining momentum as the playoffs near. Holmen’s high school football team was close last year – losing in the quarterfinals to the state runner up.

Gone, however, are 15 starters from that team, including the one-two punch of quarterback Tyler Anderson and halfback Dillon Martinez. That’s a big blow for a wishbone offense that depends so much on the quarterback making the right reads and having a chemistry with the running back whom he is pitching the ball to in the triple-option.
