  Schmidt, Johnson, Krump, and Deal among stat leaders for Warriors in 2018  

The Wheaton/Herman-Norcross Warrior football team closed out the season with a final 7-3 record after losing at second-seeded Underwood in the Section 4-Nine-Man Tournament semifinals, Friday, Oct. 27. W/H-N led 6-0 through halftime against Underwood, but the Rockets scored the only two touchdowns of the second half to rally for the win.

W/H-N was coached by James Paul, who is 18-11 over three years at the helm of the Warrior football program. He was assisted by Chris Falk, Jeff Olsen, Shawn Shay, and Mark Hormann.

The Warriors, who went 6-2 during the regular-season to place third in its sub-district, were seeded third in the playoffs and had opened up the section playoffs with a 38-22 win over sixth-seeded Bertha-Hewitt.

Verndale, which won the sub-district title this fall with a perfect 8-0 record, barely got by Hancock in the semifinals, 36-29, but then edged Underwood for the section title, 12-0. In the state tourney, Verndale fell in the quarterfinals to Mountain Lake Area, 23-6.

Underwood and W/H-N did not play during the regular-season this year, but Underwood finished second in the sub-district with a 7-1 record, followed by W/H-N (6-2), Hancock (5-3), Bertha-Hewitt and Brandon-Evansville (both 4-4), Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley (3-5), Rothsay (2-6), Park Christian (1-7), and Hillcrest Lutheran (0-8).

Seniors lost to graduation from this year’s W/H-N team are Nelson Schmidt, James Conroy, Spencer Ellison, Anthony Jackson-Walker, Hunter Johnson, Alex Johannsen, Christian Krump, Dilon Hanson, Isaac Deal, and Derrick Hanson.
