September 26, 2013: TV Time

Ben is #9
We had a very exciting Thursday night as Skutt fans and parents. Our boys played hard and with heart for a decisive win against Seward. The exhilaration of playing on TV as the featured game of the week added to their fury.

I love these boys. Six of the senior players are St. Wenceslaus classmates, together since kindergarten. I have watched them grow up. And now we are on our last hurrah.

Watching our senior boys finish their high school years is bitter sweet. But nights like these we'll carry in our hearts for a long, long time.

At halftime, Seward's total yardage was minus-20 as it trailed 31-0 after a 28-point second quarter.

"They didn't let us breathe for one second," new Seward coach Jamie Opfer said.

Ben Lane stuck Seward quarterback Keith Wolverton for losses on his first two carries to set the tone. A 190-pound senior linebacker, Lane also had a sack and and an electrifying punt block in the first half.

"He's getting better every week," Skutt coach Matt Turman said. "Last year he fought through some injuries.

"He takes charge out there. He's making many of the defensive calls. He had some big hits and tackles and the punt block was one of the most amazing things I've seen in a while."
