2-A-Days: South Sioux City

Local Sports
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (ABC9 Sports)–After a strong start to last season, the South Sioux City Cardinals struggled throughout the rest of their season, losing five of their last six games to finish 4-5. 

This year, change is the name of the game for the Cardinals as South Sioux adjusts to both a new head coach and a new level of competition.

Greg Hansen will be calling the shots this year after spending the last four years as the head coach at Class C-2 Centura. Before that, he led Stanton to a 47-9 record over seven seasons.

He’ll benefit from seven starters back on offense and six on defense as the Cardinals move from Class B to Class A, the biggest in Nebraska.

Gone are the Bennington’s and Blair’s from the schedules; in their place are Creighton Prep and Omaha North. With a strong senior class though, the Cardinals are ready to fly in 2014.

“We expect ourselves to play our hearts out every single game, every single down.” said senior Chris Lantz. “We’re gonna win some games and lose some games, but really all is that we’re giving it our all every single game.”

“To be the best, you gotta play the best and beat the best and we are looking forward to the challenge,” said Hansen. “I coached in Class A so I can make a pretty educational judgement and we have talent and kids that can compete in Class A very well.”
