Kee football team plays much more competitively than its 2-7 season record

The Kee football team played to a season record of 2-7 during its 2019 campaign, a mark that may not indicate just how competitive the grid Hawks truly were this fall. That overall mark included a 2-5 record in the Hawks’ Eight-Player District 3 schedule that placed Kee sixth in the final eight-team District 3 standings.

More than half of this season’s losses for the Hawks came to teams that qualified for this year’s Eight-Man State Play-Offs, including three from the Hawks’ own District 3. Two of those three fellow district squads played their way into the quarterfinals and District 3 champion Turkey Valley had its best-ever season ended in the semifinals by perennial power and Eight-Player State Championship game qualifier Don Bosco. Kee’s gridders gave half of those State Play-Off qualifiers all they wanted until late in the ballgame.
