by Dan Voigt , Emmetsburg News

With Homecoming week activities in full swing at Emmetsburg this week, the E-Hawks haven't had a lot of time to enjoy last Friday's 41-7 win over Okoboji, as their attention has been focused on this Friday's opponent, the Knights of Unity Christian of Orange City.

"They are a good football team," noted E-Hawk Head Coach Mike Dunlap. "They run a 6-2 defense and they have great size and speed."

When the Knights play offense, they will present a couple of different looks to the E-Hawk defenders.

"They play out of the shotgun in the Pro set, and will also show shotgun doubles,"?Dunlap added. "The do run the ball more than they pass."

Looking at last Friday's win, Dunlap was proud of the E-Hawks' effort.

"It was a good win for us, " Dunlap said. "We made some mistakes and errors in the first half, but we got those corrected in the second half and I?thought we played probably our best two back-to-back quarters of football this season in the second half."

Dunlap continued, "We were able to play a lot of kids and they all responded very well. We just need to continue to improve in all three aspects of our game every night."
