1990 State Football Champion

Football Team Wins State Title
Michaeleen Winter 1991 p.4

       The big surprise in fall sports was the Class B state football championship won by Coach Kane’s team. The Knights, underdogs in most of their games, finished the regular season 7-1, suffering their only loss to Elkhorn in a 34-0 pounding. However, the Knights made the most of their playoff berth, beating Crete and Boys Town before the rematch with Elkhorn in the semi-finals. The Knights avenged the earlier defeat by beating Elkhorn in overtime, 21-20. The Knights then beat Columbus Lakeview 14-7 for the title.
