Postseason: a familiar place for South Beloit football
The South Beloit football team has again made the postseason for 8-man football. 2023 has been an up-and-down season with 5 straight wins coming to start the season and then losing 3 of 4. Last week, a 25-24 victory over Rockford Christian Life helped them qualify and get some good momentum going into the postseason.
The SOBOs have been led on offense this season by senior weapon Kaden Myhres. Kaden had run for over 11 hundred yards and 13 TDs while also passing for another 8 TDs.
The SOBO's top pass catcher on the season has been Desmond Hampton with 8 TDs and over 300 yards.
The defense has given up an average of 35 points a game led by Noah Zwerenz. The senior has totaled 47 tackles with another 27 assisted tackles plus 6 sacks and an interception. The 35 points might seem like a lot, but looking at the history of 8-man football, points come in bunches. Playing offense and defense can be like trying to wrangle a lost dog in the yard.
Jim Morrow and his staff have been able to average 37 points per game this season which has allowed them to make the playoffs again.
The 2002 state championship program is looking to add to the trophy case and open the 2023 8-man playoffs on Friday, October 27th
on the road against 7-seed Flanagan.
