HS Football Playoff Notebook: Minster lets players have say

November 11, 2011

MINSTER — High school football teams almost everywhere meet near the goalline after games in communal celebration or shared misery.

Usually the players take a knee and hear one voice — that of the head coach. Depending on the outcome, that speech is usually either irate or inspiring.

The Minster Wildcats take a different tact.

The Wildcats' smashmouth toughness on the field may be traditional, but Minster lets everyone share in the responsibility of talking after games  in a way that's pretty far from old school.

HS FB Playoff NotebooK: Turf game puts a spring in Minster's step

November 9, 2011

MINSTER — Playing last week at Springfield made getting hit a little more painful than usual for the Minster Wildcats.

Minster rolled  to a 48-13 win over Catholic Central,  but a couple Wildcats said at times hitting the ground was the most physical part of the game on a field left almost barren of grass from flooding.

“At Springfield, you fall on the ground on your knees and it hurts,” Minster’s Ryan Bornhorst said. “It’s almost like falling on concrete. It was dirt with patches of grass.”
