Saints Preparing to Leave for Warmer Kentucky on Friday

Posted: Updated:

We know how cold it's going to be here on Saturday. The Carroll football team gets to leave the frigid temps. Heading to Williamsburg, Kentucky where it will be a little warmer, 39 degrees on Saturday.

Tomorrow the Carroll football team will travel to Kentucky to play in their first road playoff game since 2004 where they won two road games en route to their 3rd consecutive championship. The Saints are 7-6 all-time away from Nelson Stadium in the playoffs, but 6-2 since Mike Van Diest took over as head coach in 1999. But before taking off, they held one last practice at night where it was so cold they didn't want to take their helmets off for interviews.

"We get a great support from our fans and our community. They usually come out and make it so it's not such a road game. But it doesn't matter where we play we still got a Football game on Saturday," said Senior LB, Sean Blomquist.

"I think we'll be just fine. We have to act like we've been there before. Obviously it's not Nelson Stadium. It's not our home field in front of our home fans but we still play as a team, go out there and give it our best effort," said Mike Siegersma, Saints Senior DB.

Carroll will play Cumberlands on Saturday at 10am.
