Osky football wins season opener

The Oskaloosa Indians scored ten fourth quarter points to beat Pella Christian 29-22 Friday night (8/30) at Statesmen Community Stadium.  Tyler Miller’s two yard touchdown with five and a half minutes to play put the Indians ahead to stay, while sophomore quarterback Will Schultz threw for one touchdown and ran for another.  Oskaloosa Coach Jake Jenkins says Schultz is special.

“Like I said, he makes sophomore mistakes, but then at times, he looks like a senior.  He just needs reps.  It’s a big, big step going from freshman football to varsity football.  He skipped JV, he skipped all those years.  We put a lot of pressure on him and a lot of pressure on these guys who never played (varsity) before and that’s why I’m so proud of their resiliency because they’ve never seen this, they’ve never done this.  And to be in a dogfight that could go either way and to be able to come through with a victory, I’m extremely happy to have it.” 

Oskaloosa plays at Washington this Friday night (9/6).  You can hear the game on KBOE-FM and KBOE radio dot com.  Kickoff time is 7:30.
