North Fayette Valley made a successful entry in the record books, winning its debut game, 33-0, Friday, Aug. 31, in Postville.

Afterwards, head coach Bob Lape commented, “It was a good night all around. We were able to play a lot of kids on both sides of the ball, and they played pretty well. We’re not content, but we’re satisfied.”

TigerHawk coaches were able to evaluate a lot of players in action. In addition to rotating O-linemen, eight different players ran the ball and 24 TigerHawks were in on tackles.

The only negatives in the debut were three turnovers and six penalties for 35 yards (Postville was not called for a single penalty).

Coach’s Corner - NFV

 

Coach’s Corner

Oelwein (0-0, 0-1 @ NFV (0-0, 1-0)

In last year’s game, Oelwein broke out to a 12-0 lead, before losing to North Fayette, 27-12 in West Union. 

Last week the youthful Huskies fell to top-ranked Waukon, 33-0.

Oelwein’s O is hard to describe. It is basically an option offense out of something between the shotgun and the pistol. It almost looks like Oregon’s offensive style.

Their QB is very young, but they have some good athletes and some speed in the backfield.

On defense they use the 3-3-stack that is currently   popular.

With the new scoreboard entertaining the fans, North Fayette Valley held its annual Sports Drink Scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The TigerHawk varsity looked impressive while playing the JV. The defense controlled the first quarter before the offense took over and dominated the second quarter.

“I saw that we have some really good athletes with a lot of team speed,” explained head coach Bob Lape. “We tried some different combinations and saw that we can interchange some people.”

“I don’t know a thing about them,” stated North Fayette Valley head coach Bob Lape.

Postville is on its third head coach in as many years. While fans may not know what to expect from the Pirates on offense or defense, they should remember that Postville does have some quality athletes on the squad.

Last year Postville used some big plays to keep it close for a while, trailing 21-13 at the half and 28-19 midway through the third quarter. Eventually the Pirates lost, 35-25.

“We’ll have to adjust on the fly,” Lape explained in talking about a game plan. “In all honesty, I’m not worrying about what they do. At this point, all I can worry about is what we do and how to get us ready for week three when district play opens.”

The North Fayette Valley 2013 football team will have its first unofficial appearance on Ron Wymer Field Thursday, Aug. 22.

The annual Sports Drink Scrimmage will give fans a glimpse of the team for just the cost of a bottle of any kind of sports drinks, which are vital for the players’ hydration during the season.

Knob Prairie raises over $25,000

 

Knob Prairie raises over $25,000

The Knob Prairie Golf Tournament almost didn’t happen this year. 

According to Gary Bemiss, “I thought about not running it this year. We (Gary and current co-directors Paul Bemiss and Steve Heyer) didn’t want to compete with donations for Kaleidoscope Kids and Streetscape because they are so important to the community.”

The good news for local recreation is the organizers went ahead under the idea that “every little bit helps.”

Because of this, area recreation has $25,400 more to help area youth.

“We’re really pleased with the results,” noted Bemiss. “We had a tremendous response both from area businesses and small donations from individuals.”

North Fayette Valley started its first year of sports on Monday, Aug. 12, as football, volleyball, and cross country practices got underway.

The volleyball team kicked off the new era with practices from 7:30 to 10 a.m. The first NFV volleyball match will be held at Starmont on Thursday, Sept. 5.

While the official enrollment information from the state association will not be final until after Friday, Aug. 16, it looks as if the TigerHawks will compete in Class 3A for the playoffs. 

Once the official figures are in, the Echo will list UIC teams and their classification for all fall sports. Also starting practice on Monday were the NFV cross country and football teams.
