Winning four of its last five games just to give itself a shot at the postseason has given the Melcher-Dallas Football Squad a little experience in starting the playoff push a littler earlier in the regular season. Last year the Saints were 0-4 and 0-2 in district play and were looking like they would be sitting at home for the playoffs. But four wins in their last four games and a little help from Meskwaki Settlement School vaulted the Saints into a third seed out of District Five. Coach Ryan Conrad says with all of the experience coming back he thinks the Saints can be in there for a postseason spot once again. Conrad adds he would prefer to not to have to scramble to get in like last season, however he says if that happens this season, he is confident the guys will step up to the challenge.
