Chadron Football Ranked For First Time This Season

Now sitting at 5-0, the Chadron High football team jumped into a trio of polls this week.

The Cardinal sit at #10 in both the Lincoln Journal Star and rankings and are at #9 in this week’s Omaha World Herald rankings.

Chadron is 5-0 for the first time since 2009 and has one of the top defenses in C-1, allowing just 4.3 points per game. The Cardinals first team unit has only surrendered 6 points this season, and that was this past week’s outing against Mitchell.

On the offensive side of the ball it doesn’t hurt that the Red Birds are putting up nearly 40 points per contest behind a balanced rushing and passing attack.

Chadron returns home this week to meet a Sidney squad that is currently on a three game losing skid. The Cards have won all three of their previous meetings with the Red Raiders since Sidney dropped from Class B to C1 back in 2018, all three have been two touchdown victories.
