October 22, 2011 | 11:42 AMWALWORTH - Big Foot senior Kenny Walker ran for a season-low 27 yards Friday night in a WIAA Division 3 playoff opener against visiting Edgerton.
There's no way the Chiefs won without their star back leading the way, right?
Walker still found a way to score four total touchdowns, including a 54-yard touchdown catch, and the Chiefs rolled the Tigers (5-5), 61-6, in a game that was never close.
"I just want to keep rolling," Walker said. "It's a new season, but we have to keep the mentality that you're better than the other team. We have to work harder for next week's game."
Big Foot (10-0), a No. 2 seed, will now face third-seeded Madison Edgewood (8-2) either next Friday or Saturday. Edgewood shut out Lodi Friday, 24-0.
On Friday, Big Foot held Edgerton to a mere 75 total yards.
Offensively, junior running back Mason Dixon led the charge with 77 yards and four touchdowns.
Big Foot jumped out to a quick 28-0 advantage before pouring it on in the second quarter to lead 47-0 at halftime. Big Foot coach Rodney Wedig attributes part of his success to top-notch attitude.
"These guys adopt everybody (the younger kids)," Wedig said. "If you're a big kid, they eat lunch together. There's nobody in the state that I wouldn't take my chances against. We're a confident group."
