Greene County Football’s Caden Duncan Reviews Season & Talks Playoff Loss
Greene County Football Coach Caden Duncan is thought of by many around Iowa HS football as one of the bright young coaches in the state. Last year, Duncan led Greene County to the State Quarterfinals before falling to Algona. Coming into this season, Greene County returned only 6 total starters from that squad last year. This season was looked at from those looking from the outside-in to be a complete rebuild and Duncan would not be judged if they struggled. Greene County fell 42-0 to PCM-Monroe who had been ranked #1 in 2A for most of the 2nd half of the season. The Rams ran into a buzzsaw in the 3rd round. However, that doesn’t change the fact that Greene County exceeded most outside expectations. They started 1-2 after losses to South Central Calhoun and Atlantic. At that point, Duncan and his staff went to work making adjustments. Those adjustments began to pay dividends as young players begam to grow up over the course of the season. Greene County won 6 game sin a row including winning two games in the playoffs in which they shutout both opponents. Coach Duncan joined Rob Jones Saturday Morning on 99.7 FM to talk about the season as a whole and the PCM-Monroe loss. Duncan talked about having most of this group back for next year and being excited about the growth. The conversation is below.
