BHS FB…Brookings hosts Spearfish Friday night in game one of a doubleheader at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. Kickoff is at 6:00pm – it’ll be followed by Tri-Valley and Sioux Valley at eight.
Bobcat head coach Lee Schmidt says the team had a sub-par performance in Aberdeen. He says Brookings has to get better field position with special teams – and be able to throw the ball when drives start deep in their own end. 97627 :19 “for long fields”.
Schmidt expects teams to load up against the run until the Bobcats show a consistent passing game.
He says Brookings needs to force some turnovers. 97628 :18 “game, as well”.
Spearfish has one touchdown in two games – Schmidt says that’s the least of his concerns. 97629 :16 “the other night”.

DeHAVEN-FORDHAM…Former South Dakota State track and field standout Kim Fordham Lien is one of four to be inducted into the Jackrabbit Athletic Hall of Fame next month.
The Aberdeen native was a premiere middle-distance runner. SDSU track coach Rod DeHaven was running on the men’s team at that time, and says Lien was a tremendous athlete. 97625 :29 “test of time”.
The Jacks had a Division II program at the time – DeHaven says Lien could compete at the Division I level. 97626 :40 “an NCAA qualifier”.
Also going into the Hall are Brookings native, and former Jackrabbit tennis player Marty Johnson…baseball standout Tim Johnson…and running back Dan Sonnek.
