Lincoln High, Sioux Falls - Football History!

The Patriots beat Roosevelt on Monday night, and this puts the Lincoln team in its first ever State Semi-final.

The road gets plenty rough - Lincoln (9 - 2 record, ranked #4 in South Dakota) must play at #1 Brandon Valley (11 - 0) tomorrow (Saturday) night.

And the winner of that game faces the winner of Washington vs. O'Gorman... those two teams were the only two to beat Lincoln during the season.

However it all comes out, we're very proud of the Pats and of course #63, Tim Fountain (Jr. and a Junior).

Congratulations to Tim, Jr.! And to proud Dad, Fr. Tim. I'm from a state (not TX)and town where football fever goes way out of bounds - Valdosta, GA. The Valdosta city and the Lowndes county school rivalry has made families move in and out of the city depending on their loyalty...or which school might win State that year and secure a college scholarship. I believe coaches start recruiting these kids early, maybe just outside the delivery room.
Hope the football virus hasn't hit South Dakota yet...
Best wishes on the rest of the school year and as you start thinking about what to do and where to go after graduation.
Blessings,
