Alta, S-C play for pride against Sac, North Iowa

Friday, October 20, 2000

Alta coach Kevin Hammer evaluated Sac City's offense and defense.

"They really like to spread you out on offense and they throw the ball quite a bit, so this will be a big test for our secondary," he said. "This is a good opportunity to get some interceptions this week."

"Their quarterback throws a good ball and he's kind of elusive," Hammer added. "They have some athletic receivers and can do some damage when they get the ball in the open field."

"Defensively, they'll run a bunch of different fronts," Hammer continued. "They're going to sell out on the run. We're going to try to execute our offense the best we can and try to have long, sustained drives like last week."

‰ Schaller-Crestland plays host to North Iowa of Buffalo Center in a non-district game.

Schaller-Crestland coach Dale Tokheim assessed North Iowa, which is 5-2 overall.

"They're pretty big up front, and on offense they run a wishbone," he said. "Defensively, they run a 6-2 and they're geared to stop the run."

The Wildcats will have to be disciplined on defense.

"We'll just play assignment defense out of our 5-3 and 6-2," Tokheim said. "Everybody has to know their responsibility and make sure they carry it out."

Schaller-Crestland will try to confuse North Iowa's defense.

"I think if we just mix it up and keep them guessing by running traps with (Matt) Reimers and off-tackle and sweeps with (Kelly) Rydberg," Tokheim said.
