Kittson County Central junior Chisum Schmiedeberg puts himself in the shoes of a defensive player when he analyzes the Bearcats' offensive attack, and he doesn't envy the opponents. That's hard to stop. KCC's opponents know the feeling all too well this season. The Bearcats, who face Ogilvie in a Minnesota 9-man state quarterfinal at 7 p.
Friday in Moorhead, have scored at least 42 points in three-straight games thanks to the complementary duo of rushers Schmiedeberg and Ozzie Meyer-Rice.
Ogilvie, overall, earned its first trip to the state tournament since Kittson County Central is in the state tournament for the first time since making back-to-back appearances in and When the program was just Kittson Central, it won Back to back tandem state 9-man title in In Schmiedeberg and Meyer-Rice, the Bearcats have two rushers with more than 1, yards this season. Schmiedeberg, at 5-foot-7 and pounds, is the speedster to the outside with 1, yards, while Meyer-Rice, a 6-foot-1 and pound senior, does his damage between the tackles with 1, yards.
Early this season, Meyer-Rice was breaking free for big games. The transfer from California started the year with rushing yards against Park Christian, then ran for yards against Stephen-Argyle.
In the middle of the season, he ran for at least yards in three-straight games. Late in the year now, though, it's Schmiedeberg's turn. In the first seven games of the season, Schmiedeberg ran for more than yards twice. His season-high to that point was yards against Win-E-Mac.
In the section final against Badger-Greenbush-Middle River, he ran a season-high 29 times for yards. In those two games, Schmiedeberg ran for seven of his 15 touchdowns this year. We do our best to get a running back one-on-one, so you break one tackle and it's open field from there. At the end of the season here, we have it rolling pretty hot.
It seems like if you try to take away Ozzie, then it's my day. Take me away, Ozzie goes. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of KCC's season is that the program was in the pandemic-impacted season a year ago. We had all those young guys gaining experience. We kept telling them, you're taking your lumps but learn from this stuff.
Then, they had to get that feeling -- what it's like to win and what it takes to win. Waling said opposing defenses this year are having a hard time knowing whether to load up to stop Meyer-Rice or Schmiedeberg. That run game is also made possible by the versatility of KCC starting center Isaac Folland, a 6-foot-2, pound junior.
If a guy gets a wrong angle, he has that breakaway speed and it's tough.
