The KBBN area football game of the week tonight will put the spotlight on the Sandhills/Thedford Knights. The Knights are off to a 3-0 start and have been putting up a lot of points through 3 games averaging almost 58 points per game. This week Sandhills/Thedford was recognized by the Omaha World Herald coming in at #10 in this week’s top ten ratings in Class D2. Coach Josh Deines told KCNI/KBBN Sports that its great getting off to an undefeated start but there is still plenty of things to improve on. At the top of the list is consistency.
The Knights have been putting up some big numbers in the running game this season. According to coach Deines, the running game and the physicality with which they play has helped form the identity of this year’s team through three games.
Tonight Sandhills/Thedford will host Paxton at Thedford in the KBBN game of the week. The game will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM and kbbn.com. Coverage begins with the Consolidated Companies Friday Night Lights pregame show at 6pm. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 central time.
