Great Bend Football Jamboree 8-30-19

For the first time ever, Great Bend hosted a football jamboree with Hoisington and Scott Community High Schools.

The jamboree is a preseason gathering of three or four schools to scrimmage against each other.

In the past, most schools would hold a soap scrimmage. In a soap scrimmage, the varsity side would line up against the junior varsity. For a jamboree, two school’s varsity teams would face each other for a set number of plays.

This format gives a coach a chance to see his team against different competition for the first time in a season. The players also get some idea of how they are performing as they head into their first game week.

Pratt Football vs Hoisington 8-31-18

Week one of the high school football season saw two Central Kansas League teams square off as the Pratt Greenbacks traveled to face the Hoisington Cardinals.

Going into the game, the buzz was on Pratt’s #5 Travis Theis moving from running back to the quarterback for the team. An All-State rusher last year, many wondered how calling the plays would affect his stats. The answer, no change at all.

Theis recorded twelve rushes for a total of 204 yards and four touchdowns. He accounted for all but one of the Greenbacks touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball, Pratt’s defense held Hoisington scoreless all night long. The final score was 34 to 0.

This year marked Pratt’s first time in the tournament and the championship game. The Cardinals came into the night as back to back champions of the Winter Jam.

In the fourth quarter, Hoisington took advantage of working the ball inside and some free throws to gain a lead. The Greenbacks tried to launch multiple three-point shots, but none would fall. The Cardinals won the game with a 47 to 41 score.

They now have won the Winter Jam for three consecutive years.
