Motz's Corner for 09/16/2004
Links off to impressive start

I got to tell you that I never thought that two things would happen in this young high school football season. First, who would have thought that Southeast would be off to an 0-2 start? Nobody did, except for a few insiders of the program, perhaps. Secondly, how about them Links?!?!?! Yes, this is the same Lincoln High football team that has recently gone through the "dark ages" the last seven seasons or more. The Links at one time were a team that no one would be able to beat them and come out smelling like a rose.

Lincoln High is off to their best start in several years at 2-0 and they have to face off with teams like Bellevue East, Omaha North and Southeast in the next three games. Southeast has a matchup with North Platte this weekend, a team that seems to have fallen from grace since last season, too. The Knights also meet Lincoln East a week from tomorrow night at Seacrest, which could end up being a cakewalk for the Spartans. East has proven to be fighters and controllers of their own destiny. Do not rule these guys out at all. Jim Ebke is running neck and neck right now with Tyler Stephenson of Northeast for all-city quarterback spot. Speaking of Northeast, the Rockets pick up only their second win over Southeast in the last 16 seasons. Stephenson and the rest of the Rockets lit up the Knights 34-19 last week and show some signs of being a force later on in the season.

North Star and Southwest should be a fun game to watch and call tomorrow night. Both are still the new kids on the block and have created their own little rivalry on every playing field and court out there. Pius X and Waverly are definately making their marks on Class B and come in ranked in the Top Ten. Look for these two teams to explode when they meet later this season. Lincoln Lutheran and Lincoln Christian seem to be decent in Class C-1, with the Warriors off to a 2-0 start this year beginning with a win over county rival Raymond Central. Something tells me that the Mustangs would like to have Northeast Football Coach and alum Dave Svehla back in their arsonal.

Norris made their home season debut last week for the first time since the devestating F-4 tornado that leveled the area on May 22nd. New look, new season, and a year of change for the Titans got off to a sour start as they fell to Grand Island Northwest 24-16 in the home opener. Malcolm and Parkview Christian seem to be holding their own ground in being competitive in C-2 and Eight-Man football. Should be an interesting finish to the season all around if you ask me.
