The Falcons, after falling 0-2 against GWAL rival Bishop Carroll, gets their first home game against the 2-0 team of Dodge City. Heights has had a rough start to their season, falling 40-24 to Maize South and 55-12 to Carroll.

  Quarterback Dylan Depperschmidt says “Offensively, we got to our blocks really quick in the first half, but then the second half we kinda got sloppy and the defense, I feel like we need to wrap up a little bit more and I feel like we did really good as a team collectively.” 

Wichita Heights football has been the ” Big Dog in the City” in the past few years, but it seems like this year they are the underdogs trying to make it back on top with returning starters Josh Sanders, Chance Eastlick, Caylen Lowery, and Phillip Pickens. 

“It’s a great opportunity” says Heights 2nd year Coach Dominick Dingle “I think it’s just our next game…I know they don’t think very fondly of Heights and maybe we don’t as well. A lot of times those things don’t necessarily matter matter, we just gotta go out and take care of business. It’s our next game whether it’s North, Northwest, South, whoever it may be…that just happens to be who we’re going up against and we’re going to do our best to prepare to win the ball game.”
