If someone were to look at the stat sheets, it would have appeared that UW-Eau Claire defeated the UW-Whitewater football team by a lot. But if someone looked at the scoreboard from Saturday, they would have seen that the Warhawks defeated the BluGolds 37-22. The BluGolds led the ’Hawks in f...

October 26, 2011

It is not often the UW-Whitewater football team is tested throughout an entire game, but in Saturday’s matchup between the top two teams in the WIAC, the game was decided on a late field goal by Eric Kindler, which gave the Warhawks a 20-17 edge.

’Hawks defeat UW-Stout under the lights

October 19, 2011

A trend of the UW-Whitewater football team this season has been getting off to slow starts in the first quarter. Friday night was no different, as UW-Stout came into Whitewater and slowed things down for a while before the Warhawks took control, defeating the Blue Devils 42-21. With the victory, the ’...

Robinson makes return to football

October 19, 2011

For any sport, comebacks are very rare. Once an athlete leaves a program for any reason, it’s hard for them to be accepted back. For UW-Whitewater senior football player Cory Robinson, it was worth the risk. Robinson, who played wide receiver for the Warhawks in his first three years, decided ...

New field lights will be ready for ‘Friday Night Lights’

In 1970, Perkins Stadium had field lights installed so the field could be used at night.

Thankfully, no one was in the stadium at the time. Following...

Carrying on a family tradition

September 28, 2011

Once Brian and Jaren Borland step onto the field, it’s all business. Once they step off the field, they are like any father and son. Jaren, a junior linebacker for the Warhawk football team, transferred to UW-Whitewater after the 2009 season. He spent his first two years playing at Saginaw Valley...

Kicking game key for post-season

September 21, 2011

The two-time defending national champion Warhawk football team is 3-0 on its journey towards a three-peat. One of the keys to the team’s success this season has been the production from sophomore kicker Eric Kindler. Prior to last week’s thrashing of the Campbellsville Tigers, Kindler was 5-6...

Blanchard opens season with many new weapons

September 14, 2011

Heading into a new football season with new wide receivers can be difficult, especially if one of those wide receivers was statistically the best in team history. The Warhawks came into this season with having to fill the shoes of wideouts Aaron Rusch and Adam Brandes. Rusch is first in the...

Senior leadership key for defense

September 14, 2011

When teams lose players to graduation, it’s typically hard to replace not only their talent, but their leadership as well. Despite losing four seniors on the defensive side, the Warhawks have filled those shoes very well so far this year. Senior Jared Kiesow, a defensive leader on this defense ...
