PAGE 8: FALL SPORTS 2017 PRESS & DAKOTAN n PLAIN TALK The Crofton Warriors hoisted the Class C2 runner-up trophy a season ago, capping a 10-3 season. The Warriors will look to make a return trip to the state finals this season. Crofton Warriors Look For Return Trip To Lincoln Crofton Will Look To Fill Several Graduation Gaps Jaden Janssen and Ethan Poppe. Janssen will be in his third year of quarterbacking the Warrior offense, while Poppe earned All-State Honorable Mention as a linebacker in 2016. BY BEN HEGGE “Those two are definitely going to be the leaders of this sports@yankton.net team,” said Allen. “But, we have some other pieces that have CROFTON, Neb. — One year ago the Crofton Warriors played varsity experience that can make plays.” their final game where every It will be the new additions football team in Nebraska wants to the Crofton rotation that will their season to end. paint the picture for the Warriors At Memorial Stadium in season.

Now, the kids are ready to go out and play,” for us, but we are prepared.” Allen said. “There is a lot of The 2017 Crofton football nervous energy on the coaching team will be led by seniors staff, but we will be fine. We will just have to learn on the run a little bit.” The key to a post-season run, like the Warriors had in 2016, is a strong regular season. Crofton finished the regular season a year ago with a record of 7-2 with their two losses coming at the hands of Battle Creek and Oakland-Craig, two of the top teams in C-2. Like any team, the amount of success in the regular season depends on the health of its players. Especially in the case of Crofton, who has several positions to fill with new faces. “Like any school our size, injuries are a huge factor,” Allen said. “If we can stay healthy the whole year and get some kids to step up, then it’s going to be a fun season.” It is safe to say that the 2016 C2 State Championship game at Memorial Field gave the Warriors a taste of success that they want to achieve again this year.
