Prep football: Roncalli nominated for team honor


Roncalli has yet to be tested this season, running roughshod through its competition.

But its best game may have come this past Friday, when the Jets rolled a regarded Wrightstown unit for a 35-6 victory. Based on that effort, the Wisconsin Sports Network nominated Roncalli for its Week 5 Team of the Week.

Roncalli (5-0, 3-0 Olympian-Large) had 285 yards rushing with five touchdowns in Friday’s victory, led by Alex Deets, who rushed for 140 yards and three of the scores.

To date, the state-ranked Jets have outscored their competition 181-13. Roncalli faces 0-5 Valders this week, with games against unbeaten Chilton and Kewaunee coming up.
