For three hours on Thursday, July 23, little Harrison was in the limelight of Nebraska High School football, as the COVID-19 delayed 6-Man Shootout between all-stars from Nebraska and Wyoming, landed on the turf of Sioux County High School to battle it out for bragging rights in 2020.

Three Harvard seniors, David Reazola, Noah Okraska and Ryan Harms, highlighted their careers by stepping onto Warrior Field in Harrison, and the trio of Cardinals, led by their coach Scott Trimble, emerged as the victors in the shootout. Beating the Wyoming squad 52-25 gave the Nebraska standouts their first win in the summer shootout since 2017.

Nebraska jumped out of the gates early and often, as the red-clad guys from Nebraska led 24-0 after the first quarter, with Okraska and Reazola having a part in all three first-quarter scores.
