Moose Lake, Minn - It started three games into the 2006 season, after a week two loss to Deer River. It has become 62-straight regular season wins for the football team at Moose Lake/Willow River. To put that in even more perspective, George W. Bush was in the White House in 2006 and since then, Barack Obama has been elected and re-elected as President of the United States.

The Rebels open up at Hermantown on Thursday and the Hawks nearly ended that streak in week one of 2013 as the Rebels had to come back from a 20-0 deficit to win 24-20 at home. For the Rebels, the streak is nice, but as they point out - it doesn't help them get to state tournaments, which is their main goal.

"We focus on the playoffs and everything is about getting ready for the playoffs and getting better for the playoffs. It is something that is really exciting for the fans and the parents and past Rebel football players, but this current team, just like every other current team, we don't focus on that win streak," says Head Coach Dave Louzek.

"We always try to make the best start to our season. Coach Louzek always says we reload, we don't rebuild and I think we are ready to go again," says senior OL/LB Jeremiah Chavez.
