Turkey Valley football

Dylan Elsbernd makes an off-balance catch of a 2-point conversion Friday against Rockford.
There was a touchdown roughly every 2.8 minutes when Turkey Valley and Rockford battled in the first round of the state playoffs Friday. “I thought we played hard and executed on offense,” Trojan quarterback Ethan Leibold said of the 64-58 TV loss. “But we could have had a few more stops on defense...
Eli Nymeyer (10) has Central’s Reegan Erickson in his grasp while Ethan Leibold (6) and Carter Reicks are there in case help is needed.
On the north end of the Turkey Valley football complex — by the scoreboard — there’s a sign with 15 different years written on it, representing the 15 years the Trojans have made it to the playoffs.  Jason Herold pointed to that sign after the Trojans made it 16 on Friday. “It’s kind of nice, my...
Turkey Valley’s defense got great efforts from players like Kannon Leuenberger (42) and Seth Huinker (9) against the River Hawks.
The statistics for Easton Valley tells the story of Turkey Valley’s 60-34 Friday win over the River Hawks more so than the Trojan stats. Easton Valley threw for five touchdowns — but they also were picked off three times. The River Hawks gained 352 yards passing — but only 15 yards rushing. Coach...
Turkey Valley quarterback Ethan Leibold had another big night — running for two touchdowns and throwing for two more — in the Trojan win over Lasing Kee on Friday.
After a loss to Central City, Turkey Valley couldn’t afford another defeat if they wanted to advance to the state playoffs in a wild card spot.  But when the Trojans traveled to Kee High Friday, they were down several players due to injury, another thing they could not afford. What’s more, the...
Turkey Valley’s Keegan Balk (5) and Eli Nymeyer team up for a tackle in the Trojans’ district win over Springville Friday night.
as soaked with sweat after Turkey Valley’s 54-7 win over Springville Friday night, he said the heat — the temperature was around 80 at the start of the game, and of course, there’s the humidity — didn’t bother him. “No, you get that adrenaline pumping and you don’t even notice it,” he said after...
Shown in a Trojan home game, Eli Reicks gained 117 yards against Midland Wyoming Friday.
Turkey Valley made sure Midland Wyoming’s size advantage didn’t come into play — at least at the start — and built a 38-14 halftime lead on its way to a 46-36 victory over its opponent Friday. The Eagles’ size gave Turkey Valley coach Mark Scott cause for a concern as the Eagles, who were ranked in...
Turkey Valley’s Ethan Leibold reaches the ball across the goal line during the Trojans’ season-opening victory against AGWSR on Friday night.
With 72 yards passing and 201 yards rushing, Turkey Valley mixed up their offense just enough to keep AGWSR’s defense off balance in the season opener Friday. The 38-13 score and 273 yards of total offense may sound like a full night’s work, but only half the game was played.  With the Trojans...
Cale Reicks (22) and Will Einwalter (25) were both named to the District 2 first team after the season ended.
Turkey Valley may not have had the quantity of players on the District 2, 8-man All-District lists as they have in recent year, but the players that were named certainly had the quality part covered. Three of the four seniors on the team were awarded postseason honors, but there were also a pair of...
Turkey Valley’s Braeden Baumler gets free during Turkey Valley’s 52-14 win over Clarksville Friday.
    Hearing a pop in your ankle is never a good thing. Especially in the middle of a football game.    As Braeden Baumler sat on the sideline Friday after helping Turkey Valley to a commanding lead over Clarksville, he was really hoping to get a chance to play this Friday on senior night.    "That'...
Two of the Friday defensive leaders for Turkey Valley team up on this play earlier in the season. Kannon Leuenberger [42] finished with 14 tackle points and Eli Nymeyer recovered a fumble.
     A serious blow was dealt to the chances of Turkey Valley playing in the postseason this year when the Trojans were defeated on a wet field at Northwood-Kensett Friday.     "The winner is still in the playoff picture, the loser is out of the picture for all practical purposes," said coach Mark...
