Coe ‘playing with house money,’ as they head to the DIII NCAA Tournament
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - It was a wild scene as the Coe Kohawks learned they were heading to the postseason as an at-large selection.
“The first thing I said was, ‘we’re playing with house money,’” said head coach Tyler Staker. “When we were able to hear our name announced and get into the playoffs, I told our guys, ‘hey guys, this is like icing on the cake, now it’s a chance to go out and play more football and have fun.’”
The Kohawks, with just one loss to No. 3 Wartburg, will play at undefeated Aurora on Saturday.
“‘Playing with house money,’ that’s kind of the model going into it. I think we are going to be loose, and it should be fun,” said senior quarterback Carter Maske.
