Stearns Football Staying Humble Even With Undefeated Season 

The Stearns Minutemen are 6-0 this season and have a good chance of having home field in the playoffs. As I recently found out, the Minutemen are keeping a level head, even with their success.With Stearns football back atop the Class C standings, the people of Millinocket are filling Alumni Field. Both the town and the team are feeding off the excitement.Chris Preble – Stearns Football Coach”Basically the school is the center of this town in many ways, not just athletics but when we have success, the whole community celebrates it.”The Minutemen have been pretty much unstoppable on offense thanks to the two-headed monster of Jared McGreevey and Billy Eurich. However, that’s not their only key to success.Billy Eurich – Stearns Senior”We have a big senior class and I’ve been playing with them since I was real little so we all click.”The Minutemen have been racking up points and victories thanks to their execution but they say they win in the preparation.Charlie Tapley – Stearns Senior”Coming out every week, working hard, it feels good when you get a win when the weeks over. That’s what you work for all week. You want to get the win and once you do get the win, you feel a lot more relieved but come Monday, you gotta get ready for the next week and start working again.”Preparing week to week has helped Stearns to their unbeaten start in 2010. They don’t plan on changing their approach even with the playoffs less than three weeks away.Chris Preble – Stearns Football Coach”We want to be home for a playoff game or throughout the playoffs and then once playoffs happen, everyone is 0-0 so we’ll worry about post season when that time comes.”Stearns has two games left before the playoffs, both of those games are at home. Stearns will face Dexter this friday and John Bapst next Friday. With home field on the line in the postseason, the Minutemen are expecting big turnouts for those last two games.
