New Hampton football

Noah Fenske blocks the Go-Hawks’ Mosai Newsom on a pass play.
Forget that 3-6 record, as far as New Hampton football coach Scott Frerichs is concerned, the nine players who earned all-Class 2A, District 3 first-team honors are absolutely deserving of their awards. “We finished third in our district, and honestly, we’re not that far away from being 6-3, 7-2...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer picks up some of the 201 yards he gained during the Chickasaws’ 8-0 win over Hampton-Dumont on Friday.
Maybe Dillon Roberson summed up both the 2018 season and Friday night the best. “It definitely wasn’t the season we thought we’d have,” the New Hampton senior said, “but at least we got tonight.” And while it wasn’t always pretty, New Hampton found a way to close out a disappointing season with an...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson blocks Clear Lake’s Jorge Rivera during the first half of Friday’s game.
Say this for the New Hampton football team Friday night: It responded to the first punch Clear Lake delivered. But the Chickasaws didn’t have any answers for the rest.  A week after getting knocked out of playoff contention with a double-overtime loss to Crestwood, New Hampton endured a 42-7...
Austin Flugum fights for extra yardage after making a catch in the Chickasaws game against Waverly-Shell Rock Friday night.
The New Hampton football team gathered around their coach Friday night, and the disappointment was palatable. The Chickasaws had just dominated the second half of its game with Waverly-Shell Rock, only to give up a late 80-yard touchdown run and end up on the wrong end of a 13-6 score. Yet — maybe...
New Hampton senior Max Babcock fights for extra yards after making a reception during the first quarter of Friday’s game against Waukon.
There was a brief stretch — spanning the last minute of the first half and the first couple of the second — when New Hampton appeared like it was going to climb back into Friday night’s game against Waukon. Trailing 18-0 late in the second quarter, the Chickasaws came up with a big defensive stop...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer finds open field on a screen pass Friday night in the Chickasaws’ season opener with Aplington-Parkersburg.
This one, no doubt, is going to sting for a while. That’s because too often New Hampton was in own worst enemy Friday night in its season opener against Aplington-Parkersburg as the Chickasaws couldn’t hold a 12-0 second half lead and fell to the Falcons 13-12. “It was a little frustrating because...
New Hampton senior Josh Fenske was named the district’s defensive most valuable player for the second year in a row.
It’s a simple truth: Win a lot of football games and you’re going to get a lot of postseason honors. Exhibit A would be New Hampton as the Chickasaws had 21 players honored by Class 2A, District 2 coaches as nine made the first-team, four were selected as honorable mention picks and 18 earned all-...
    It’s pretty simple for the New Hampton football team.    Win tonight [Friday] at Clear Lake, claim the Class 2A, District 2 title and earn a home playoff game.    And if the Chickasaws don’t win? Well, then they’re going to need help just to make the playoffs.    “It’s obviously the biggest...
Josh Fenske, shown pressuring a quarterback last fall, committed to Southern Illinois this week.
    Josh Fenske visited the Southern Illinois University last month and came away impressed.    “I liked the campus. It’s beautiful. I liked the coaches and I felt like it was a good place for me,” he said. “The coaching staff was a key part. ... They have guys who know football and you can look up...
Members of the New Hampton football team listen intently to Chickasaw coach Scott Frerichs during a practice earlier this week.
    The New Hampton football team will head to Decorah tonight [Friday] to finally play someone other themselves.    The Chickasaws and Vikings, for a second straight year, will scrimmage against each other, beginning at 7 p.m.    “It’s a good thing for us,” New Hampton coach Scott Frerichs said. “...
