After losing several key contributors and a large senior class in 2021, the Indianola football team came into 2022 with a lot of unknowns coming off of a quarterfinal appearance in class 4A. The Indians had to rebuild nearly the entire defense, with only several players having varsity experience, and a lot of the new players were seniors who mostly played junior varsity in their junior seasons.

Head coach Eric Kluver tells KNIA Sports the senior class gave it their all, and they will be missed.

“I could go up and down the list of guys who were important. This group has once again taken this program to the next level, and set a standard that we are really, really proud of.”

The Indians went 7-4 on the season, falling to Cedar Rapids Xavier to end their season for the second straight year one game away from the UNI Dome.
