The Kee football team knew it would have its hands full heading into its Friday, September 14 home game with a Central City team that was undefeated, was averaging just under 60 points per game and featured one of the state’s leading rushers in senior Trey Holub with a per carry average of just over 24 yards per carry. Although the football Hawks held Holub nearly a third below his per carry average, he still managed to rack up 139 yards of offense and three touchdowns while getting considerable help from his teammates in finishing right near the Wildcats’ scoring average with a 60-12 Kee defeat.

Of Holub’s 139 yards of offense, 136 of those came on the ground to lead a Wildcat rushing attack that amassed 396 yards and four tallies. Even though Central City completed just four of eight passes in the contest, three of those four aerial completions went for touchdowns and accounted for all of the visitors’ 69 yards through the air, with the other completion resulting in a one-yard loss stuffed by Kee’s defense.
