Finish the game. That is the goal for tonight’s football game against powerhouse Fremd.
After losing 26-24 to Jacobs High School in the first game of the season on August 28 by letting up a touchdown with 70 seconds left in the game and almost giving up a touchdown with 76 seconds left in last week’s game against Hoffman Estates High School, the Knights are looking to start fast early on and finish the game strong this week at Fremd, according to head coach Mike Sebestyen.
“We need to start faster,” Sebestyen said. “That’s been one thing that we haven’t done. We have not started fast in the first two games offensively.”
According to Sebestyen, the defensive line has improved in the past two games, but finishing out the game is vital.
“We’ve gotten better,” Sebestyen said. “We finished [the Hoffman Estates game] off, but we sure still left a lot of things hanging out on Friday night. We’ve got to be better… Finishing a game is just a major focus that has to come together. If we do that I think we will be in good shape.”
Senior offensive line and defensive tackle Matt Schultz agreed with Sebestyen along with adding the offense’s goal is to go over 300 yards while the defense is trying to keep the Vikings under 14 points.
“We have to finish games,” Schultz said. “When we get ahead we have to keep the lead. We have to play for the whole [game] and not let up and not make mistakes.”
The other key to game, according to Sebestyen, is focusing on Prospect’s team rather than thinking about Fremd.
“[Fremd is] a good football team,” Sebestyen said. “They obviously have some talented kids, but I feel very good about the type of kids that we are putting out on the field. We have a great amount of respect for our opponent, but it still comes back to I don’t really care about where they’re at. I care about where we’re at, how we’re doing. Our focus is solely on us and that has been very productive for our team this year.”

    A 9-sport conference schedule doesn’t make everyone equal; it
    just means they’re taking part in the identical number of league video games.
    But when we will query the number of bowl games, maybe it
    is time to do the same with postseason awards.
    Knight is coming off his best school sport, throwing for 348 yards with 4 touchdowns on 32-for-forty four passing in OU’s 45-31 win over Alabama within the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
    Knight is a leader on and off the sphere, and is the
    sort of guy you would not have to query casting a Heisman Trophy vote for.
