Thanks to Mother Nature's two-plus hours of lightning on Friday night, St. Joseph-Ogden rolled to a non-conference home victory over Clifton Central in game two of the 2015 season last September. Ranked in the Associated Press' top ten in Class 3A, the Spartans shutout visiting Clifton Central 44-0 while advancing to a 2-0 record.

Wes Kibler looks to the sidelines.
Spartan linebacker Wesley Kibler looks to the sidelines for instructions. Along with his intimidating presence, Kibler's size and speed was one of the key factors in the SJO's lopsided victory on Saturday.

Dick Duval
One of the most elusive emotions to capture of St. Joseph-Ogden head coach Dick Duval on the sidelines is a smile. The retiring hall-of-famer led the Spartans to six state final appearances during his tenure as head coach.

Austin Luebchow

Bob Oltean
One of the best places to watch your son play at a game is from the sidelines with chain crew. Bob Oltean, father of SJO quarterback Eli, waits for the chains to be moved after a first down.
