On Monday October 14th, Newton Railers JV football team competed against and lost to Salina Central. NHS students had the day off due to National Columbus Day.

“I think I did pretty good during the game, a lot of people look up to me as a role model so I knew I would have to play well,” sophomore Jacob Schmidt said.

Schmidt played the position of receiver and corner during the game and started first quarter for the Railers. Sophomore Joe Slechta expressed his success this season as a cornerback with multiple picks and tackles.

“The season has gone very well for me, I’ve got burnt a couple times but I think I’ve recovered and I’m excited to play Varsity next season,” Slechta said.

Newton JV has won one game this season against Buhler 30-8 and are hoping for more to come. Many of the players expressed the ambitions for next season and their excitement for their many football seasons in the future.

“I blocked for my quarterback and I think we all ran some solid plays, I think my technique as good even though I didn’t play with much aggression. Next season I am hoping for some more wins and to play my position the best as possible,” sophomore Trent Henrich said.
