Indians host Grinnell at Homecoming

Oskaloosa High’s football team takes on Grinnell Friday night (9/27) for homecoming.  The Indians lost three players to injury during last week’s 31-7 loss to Norwalk.  Oskaloosa Coach Jake Jenkins says while Aaron Blom and Tyler Miller will be back tonight, sophomore Will Schultz won’t be.

“Will Schultz is not playing quarterback tonight, he’s not going to play at all  with concussion protocol.  We’re going to keep our kids safe.  And I tell people all the time, I’ve got to practice what I preach.   If we don’t feel good about them going back in and if they had a concussion, we’re going to keep them out until they’re ready to go.”

Friday’s game also marks the start of district play…and Oskaloosa is the defending Class 3A District 7 champion.  You can hear the Oskaloosa/Grinnell game on KBOE-FM and Our coverage starts at 7:15 with the kickoff from Statesmen Community Stadium at 7:30.
