Roosevelt Riding High

September 13, 2011, 10:45 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Roosevelt Riding High
SIOUX FALLS, SD - The Roosevelt Rough Riders have come out of the gate strong this season and I'm not just talking about their 3 and 0 record.

"Every game so far we've really come out of the locker room and played hard in the first quarter and when you can do that consistently you can get ahead and make teams play from behind," Roosevelt head coach Kim Nelson said.

The Riders made their biggest statement this past weekend against former number one Lincoln, putting up 45 points and holding a potent Patriot offense to just seven in the first half.

"I'd say we kinda deserve it because we come as a team and we work as a team all the time," senior linebacker Daquan Brooks said.

And even though that work has translated into a trio of early season wins, Nelson's crew knows there are plenty of challenges that lie ahead.

"Wins like this mean that we have to keep working on the little things, don't get our heads too high and we have to keep working at practice," senior wide receiver Justin Warne said.

"Those are big wins but they're over with now. Watertown doesn't care if we beat anybody. They're going to be working to beat us," Nelson said.

As for what specifically they need to improve, Nelson simply says check the tape.

"Every game that you play when you watch film is amazing that you win. When you see the mistakes that you make and our players see it too, and that's the best teaching tool out there," Nelson said.
