This year has been the lucky 13th season for Trojan football. Finishing with a 9-0 record for the first time in 13 years and recapturing the coveted bronze Boot from City High, the team has truly proven they have nine lives. “It’s a great accomplishment, for our seniors especially,” said head coach Brian Sauser. “Any time you get over a milestone like this it’s really exciting.” Halloween and play-offs lurk around the corner as the WSS goes to press. The Trojans played Waterloo West on Wednesday. “Now it’s one and done for every team that goes out there and plays … We can’t get to game five unless we get game one,” Sauser said.
