Although the season ended on a sour note, the Chippewa Valley Varsity Football team had an excellent season.

With an overall record of 10-2, this was a fierce and fly-high team. They gave their all each and every game, and the way they played proved it. With both of their losses coming in the final seconds of the game, it shows that this year’s team was really dedicated to the season. 

This season was a major turn of events from last year.

Last season, the team went 6-3 and loss in the first round of the playoffs. Coach, Scott Merchant had said earlier in the season that the team last year was very young. “The difference between last year and this year is that there are no young players on the team. We had lots of veterans coming back.” This season’s team had a regular season record of 8-1, with key wins against the Dakota Cougars and the Romeo Bulldogs; and the only regular season loss to the Eisenhower Eagles. This loss came in the final minutes of the game.

The Big Reds recent game against the Detroit Cass Tech Technicians was the Regional Final Game. CV had a big momentum change when Cass Tech went three-and-out and then had to punt. Chippewa senior DB Jalen Jennings, blocked the punt and set up for the offense in the red zone to score. Leading 26-25 within the last minutes of the game, Cass Tech marched down the field and was able to score a late touchdown in the final seconds of the game. Senior lineman, Nick Reinhardt, said that, “It was hard for us to see that we lost. At the end everyone was crying because we knew we should have won that game.”

Even though the season didn’t go as wanted to, it was a really good run. To all the seniors, thank you for all your hard work and dedication. And to the Team 56, good luck next year and Go Big Reds!
