Harvard hopes third times the charm in state title game

By  | 

HARVARD, Neb. (KSNB) - Harvard football (11-0) is back in the Class D-6 State Title game for the second time in three seasons. The Cardinals made it to the state title game twice before (1982, 2017) but have never come away as champions.

Head Coach Scott Trimble is now in his fifth year as the head coach and said this season he wanted the team to have a more aggressive mentality heading into each week.

"Just get out there, embrace the challenge. Accept it but don't let sit back and let it come to you," Trimble said. "You know be the aggressor and you know we use the term being the hunter and take it to the other team."

The Cardinals have eight seniors on this year's team and know they cannot afford to let this chance pass them by.

"This year we wanted to have a target on other people so we really just embraced that became the hunters, instead of the hunted which really changed our mentality of the game" Senior co-Captain, David Reazola said.

The second-seed Cardinals face fourth-seed McCool Junction (11-0), Friday, Nov. 22 at Foster Field.
