Waukon football team opens District play with 14-3 home win over Beckman


Waukon football senior quarterback Peyton Hesse launches a pass attempt in the Indians’ 14-3 home victory over Dyersville Beckman to open Class 2A District 3 play Friday, September 18. Hesse claimed two more career passing records for Waukon football in the victory, surpassing 1998 Waukon High School graduate Nick Rissman’s career passing yards total of 2,215 and career pass completions total of 163. Hesse completed 14 of 29 passes for 142 yards and one touchdown in the contest, that touchdown pass also furthering his career touchdown passes record to 31, a standard he broke in this season’s first game and previously set at 22 by his older brother, 2014 Waukon High School graduate Parker Hesse, during his senior season two years ago.

It took the most balanced overall effort of the season for the Waukon football team to remain undefeated Friday, September 18 when the Indians faced cool, rainy weather and Dyersville Beckman, the first of back-to-back opponents from their own district who played all the way to the Class 2A State Play-Off Semifinals last season. A season-low 142 yards through the air were complemented nicely by a season-high 162 yards on the ground for the Indians, but a staunch defensive effort that limited the visiting Trailblazers to just 149 yards of total offense furthered that complete balance to result in a 14-3 victory for the Indians.

Waukon football team off to 3-0 start after 40-28 road victory at Crestwood

The early-season roll for the Waukon football team continued through the Indians’ final non-district game Friday, September 11, with some generosity by the host Crestwood Cadets aiding that cause early on.

New, larger press box at Waukon High School to be dedicated this Friday


The new press box at the Waukon High School football/track and field stadium will be formally dedicated in honor of 2004 Waukon High School graduate Mitch Einck in an event planned for halftime of this Friday’s Waukon varsity home football game against Dyersville Beckman. The 48’x10’ structure was constructed this summer by Waukon High School Industrial Technology instructor Jed Hemann with some help from students, local contractors and other Allamakee Community School District staff members, and it spans half again as far as the previous 32’x10’ press box that originally hovered above the home team bleachers. A donation of $26,500 by the Einck family helped make the project possible, including some additional forward-thinking amenities within the project. That donated funding was the product of the generosity of family members and friends of the Einck family at the second annual Mitch Einck Memorial Golf Outing held in June of 2014.

The Waukon Indian home football game this Friday, September 18 will feature much more than the hosting of a highly-regarded Dyersville Beckman team, as the stadium at Waukon High School will also host members and friends of the Dave and Nancy Einck family, who will be gathered there to dedicate a new press box overlooking the stadium in honor of their late son, brother and friend, 2004 Waukon High School graduate Mitch Einck.
In a seemingly fitting full circle, the football field and track and field complex where those family members and friends once watched Mitch perform as a student-athlete at Waukon High School will now, in turn, be kept watch over by that new, larger press box that will be formally dedicated in Mitch’s memory at halftime of this Friday’s varsity football game, just over three years to the day that an accidental fall claimed his life September 16, 2012 at the tender age of 26.
