WITT WEEK!! RED SWARM!! It is finally here, and there is no doubt that the Little Giants haven’t forgotten last year. After losing on a last-second field goal in Byron P. Hollett Stadium last year, there is a bitter taste in our mouths and we’re ready for battle this Saturday. The Little Giants will be traveling to Springfield, OH, to take on the Wittenberg Tigers for the NCAC Championship on Saturday. I don’t think the regular season could end any better than playing our top two rivals in Wittenberg and DePauw. As a team, we have realized the importance of the three week stretch at the tail end of our schedule. After beating
Allegheny, we have some momentum going into the Conference Championship. However, we know it is going to be a dog fight and the game will most likely end on the last play. The past three years versus Wittenberg, the game has gone down to the final seconds, and my sophomore year will be a memory I will never forget. Josh Gangloff had blocked a kick and our offense drove down into field goal range, where now-senior(then sophomore) kicker Spencer Whitehead drilled a field goal to win the game.
As our days of preparation come closer to an end we know it is going to take all that Wabash College has to beat the Tigers. There is no doubt that it will be a fight to the finish and the team that comes out on top will be the Champion of the NCAC, a championship that has been fought out between Wabash and Wittenberg nine out of the last ten years. I hope everyone can come and make this another special moment in Wabash College Football history.
