HASTINGS, Neb.-- Yes, Hastings Bronco football coach Tony Harper is pleased his team is 3-0 so far this season but he throws out a word of caution. The Broncos were also 3-0 at this time last season and then went on to lose seven of eight games in league play to finish 4-7.
Saturday the Broncos defeated Valley City State 47-9 in the home opener at Lloyd Wilson field. Tahj Willingham rushed for 100 yards and scored 3 touchdowns to lead the way as the Broncos were able to play just about everyone on the roster.
Coach Harper will no doubt be among the most interested spectators in Crete Saturday when Doane, a future opponent, plays Dakota Wesleyan, the Broncos next opponent.
