    With the Bulldogs determined to slow the Wolverines’ running game, they loaded the box. Currin,  the East Mills signal-caller, was ready.

  • Glenwood 2-0 after 38-13...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Not many coaches would be in any kind of mood to smile after losing his starting quarterback in the first quarter, turning the ball over four times and committing 12 penalties.

    But there was Glenwood football coach Cory Faust after his team’s physical, tough road game at Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Friday, smiling.


    I guess it’s easy to smile when key injuries, four turnovers and 12 penalties adds up to a 38-19 Glenwood victory.
