Dralle tops 1,000 as Cougars bop L-M

Exactly one year ago, Kennedy walked off the field at Kingston Stadium with an 0-6 record after a 29-14 loss to a senior-laden Linn-Mar team.

Friday night, the Cougars amazing turnaround continued against those same Lions at Linn-Mar Stadium. Led by a physical offensive line and workhorse running back Tyler Dralle, Kennedy ruined the Lions' homecoming with a convincing 31-6 victory before an overflow crowd of about 5,000 fans.

The Cougars all but locked up a Class 4A playoff berth with the win. Kennedy (6-0, 2-0 District 5), ranked No. 5 by Des Moines Register, can make it official with a victory next week over winless Waterloo East. The six wins to start a season is believed to be the best start in school history.

"We have a little conflicting information on that," Kennedy coach Brian White said. "I know for sure that six straight at least is tied for the best start in school history.
