Good Luck to Rice Lake!

Good luck to the Rice Lake Warriors playing in today’s Division 3 State Championship game in Wisconsin. Rice Lake is a Flexbone Association Academy client this season; and scored 472 points so far this season. Here is an article leading up to the game:

Wisconsin Lutheran is the favorite to beat Rice Lake and win the WIAA Division 3 football state championship. The Warriors don’t care. It’s nothing new. Being the underdog is part of their nature.

“Being a smaller school in a bigger conference, that’s something we just have to get used to,” linebacker Parker Buckley said. “We play with a big chip on our shoulder. That’s something we thrive on.”

Easily the smallest school in the Big Rivers, Rice Lake has to beat four ­Division 1 or 2 schools every year just to make the playoffs. If the Warriors hadn’t blocked an extra point against Hudson and stuffed Menomonie on a two-point conversion a week later, their run to the state title game this year would have ended before it even started.

“We’ve had three or four years when we’ve had teams like this and we didn’t make the playoffs,” Rice Lake coach Dan Hill said. “Every year for us, it’s a dogfight just to get in. But we know that when we do, we’ve been playing playoff quality football the whole time. We feel pretty good about our chances of doing something.”

That’s why the Warriors weren’t overwhelmed in the state semifinal against West De Pere, the second-ranked team in the state. Even when they were down by two scores in the fourth quarter, the Warriors never thought they were out of it. Hill just thought of it as another close, high-scoring Big Rivers game, which Rice Lake had a knack for winning.
