Before each one of his booming kickoffs, Cedar Valley Christian’s Mike Scroggs yells, “Huskies, are you ready?”
He ended up hoarse and with a sore right foot before the night was over Thursday as his teammates proved plenty ready by winning their season opener, 65-6, over Harmony of Farmington on the Huskies' home field at LaSalle Middle School.
It was just Cedar Valley’s second victory ever (to go with 24 losses) as it begins its fifth season of eight-man football. The other was at Harmony 30-20 a year ago.
“This feels great,” said hyped-up senior Colin Heeren, who scored on the kickoff return to open the second half, immediately intercepted a pass and scored again on a 24-yard sweep. (He’d scored the play before, too, but the touchdown was called back for holding.)
"But we’re not gonna stop at just one win," he said. "We’re gonna win at least four this year, I promise, maybe more.”
