(Story Courtesy Of Con Marshall)
Three Chadron High School seniors are among the approximately 40 football players who have committed to join the Eagles beginning this fall.
The trio of Cardinals are Dan Dunbar, Jake Lemmon and Clark Riesen. All three earned first-team All-Western Conference and honorable mention all-state this last fall.
Dunbar and Riesen are planning to play linebacker and Lemmon is expected to be a receiver for the Eagles.
Dunbar participated in 54 tackles and recovered four fumbles last fall. He also caught 20 passes for 175 yards.
Riesen led the Cardinals in tackles with 90, half of them solos, carried the ball 80 times for 518 yards, an average of 6.5 yards, and scored eight touchdowns. He also recovered three fumbles.
Lemmon led the Cards in both rushing with 199 carries for 910 yards and receiving with 36 receptions for 416 yards. In addition, he returned 22 kickoffs for 462 yards and scored 16 touchdowns along with eight two-point conversions for a total of 112 points. Lemmon accumulated 1,326 all-purpose yards last fall.
Riesen and Lemmon have been highly-successful wrestlers for the Cardinals this winter and Dunbar is one of the top alternates for the basketball team.
Other Chadron State recruits from the Panhandle include Baily Hood of Alliance, Cade Payne of Hemingford, Zane Musgrave of Hyannis and Keegan Reifschneider of Scottsbluff.
Other Nebraskans signing with the Eagles include all-state quarterback Carter Terry of Grand Island Northwest and Morgan Fawyer, a wide receiver from McCook who also was the Class B runner-up in the long jump at the State Track Meet last spring.
The South Dakota recruits include Morgan Harkless of Hot Springs.
