Traditional rivals Webster City and Humboldt will meet in the season opener on Friday. Both teams come in ranked in the preseason polls. The Lynx are #4 in the 4A poll and Humboldt sits at #8 in Class 3A.
That’s Humboldt Coach Derrick Elman, he says the message going in has been about capitalizing on opportunities.
A potential difference maker in that game could be Humboldt QB Caden “Mad Dog” Matson. He had over 2,500 total yards of offense and 32 total TD’s in 2020.
Webster City has won the last two meetings in the series by a combined 13 points.
