"We got out of the gates pretty fast, and put up some good numbers offensively. Defense is playing really well, so the kids are pretty excited," said Wrenshall Football Head Coach Jeremy Zywicki.

"We're very disciplined. We don't bite on fakes. A disciplined defense; that's what's doing it," said senior running back Tyler Kelley.

Offensively, the team does things well on the ground creating a two-headed monster with Kelley and his younger brother Jarod. Together they split carries and share touchdowns. In their last game, each of them recorded at least three touchdowns in their 72-0 victory.

"Last year, I basically had all the carries. It was hard because teams knew what we were going to do. They knew I was getting the ball and it was hard to get guards," said Kelley. "With this year, him getting half the carries, it's easier for me."

Their schedule only gets tougher starting this Friday. One matchup they have circled on their calendar comes at the end of the season against last year's Section 5 champions Cromwell-Wright.

"They were really good last year," said junior guard Eli Krisak. "We didn't come close to them last year, but we'd like to the same to them this year."

"We lost to them in 2014 in the section championship. They were really good, but it would be nice to beat them this year," added Kelley.

The team will pay a visit to Isle (1-2) on Friday. Game time is set for 7:00 P.M.
