Rough night for Kimball football program

Injuries force junior varsity shut down


September 21, 2017

Kimball Football had a rough night last Friday, Sept. 16, in Imperial when the Longhorns took to the field to look for their first win against a tough team in Chase County.

The Kimball Longhorns were already down one quarterback, Izaac Reuter, with a knee injury from July. Though he keeps trying to play through it, Aarestad is hoping he can get some rest with some time off and come back 100 percent.

The last thing they expected going into this game was to lose another one. Colton Mielke came out of the game on the first series with a hurt wrist. Brenden Walker was next up in line.

“We put Brenden in a bad spot on Friday night and I thought he made some plays and ran the offense well. It is just a tough situation not getting many reps during the week and then to expect him to play the whole game againsy a good team,” said Coach Aarestad. Kimball lost the game 39-0.

In spite of the loss, Aarestad thinks the kids are doing a good job with the obstacles they are facing.

“I think if we can hang in there and keep getting better each week we will see improvements,” he said.

Look to catch your Longhorns at home tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 22, when they take on Hershey at 6:30 p.m.
