The Schlagle Stallions moved to 3-1 Friday night with a 36-14 victory over Sumner Academy. This is their third straight win after an opener everyone would really like to forget. In their opening game they traveled to Topeka High and got molly whopped 69-0. First year Coach Dwayne Williams wasn't going to let that affect the whole season.
“We took it on the chin and came back fighting.” said Williams.
There are a couple of different approaches you can take when you lose a game like that. You can just try to ignore it and move on or you can try to deliver a message. Williams didn't shy away from telling the team what they needed to do.

I sent this out on twitter but I have been completely impressed with our player guests this year. Jonah Freese sounds like a seasoned veteran and could easily take my spot at SHUKC. Todd Wassman is always good to talk to as well. We got to chat for an hour before we went live and the stories are always good to hear.
Picks for this week and a break down of last week's action are all available to you on SHUKC's Sports Pass.

These questions are still fresh enough that I will share. I appreciate coach Milne taking the time to answer.
Q1: A lot was made of losing a player like Paul Berry and even Sirr Green but do you think players on a team last year relied too much on them?
Every team is different, you don't stay the same year in and year out just because you have some of the same players around. I don't know if last year's team relied on Paul or Sirr too much, but I do know that this group feels like they can rely and count on each other.
Q2: Talk about your group of linebackers Kason Clark, Ryan O'Neal and Vincent John all seniors on this Turner defense. All have 20+ tackles?
These three have done a nice job for us defensively so far, but they're also a big reason why we changed what we do offensively too. The thing I like the most is the consistent effort we continue to get out of them. It sets a great example for our younger guys, and I think a lot of that can be attributed to their wrestling background. They've all spent some time in our wrestling program. Coach Sierant does a great job.
I am constantly working on my ability to write good columns. One thing I am trying to do more of this year is get quotes to use when I write. The On The Dotte piece is something I plan to take seriously but there is a lot of information in the responses I get back from coaches. It is a good opportunity to help get some coach feedback on players for recruiting. This week I will share Coach Aslin's responses to a few questions I asked. It is really good stuff.
Thanks to Coach Aslin for taking the time.
Q1: With all the talent that graduated last year in Jackson, Dumler, Mason and Knernshield it is a testament to the program you are developing. Talk about your staff's ability to keep the train moving on offense and defense.
We have really worked the last 4 years on player development and not just concentrating on the Varsity athletes in practice. We try to identify the players that will/have to help us out as sophomores and really try to develop them as Freshman so they are ready for Varsity football as a sophomore. This has allowed us to lose really good seniors and then plug their loss with younger players.
