Mosinee football manager makes the kick of a lifetime
MOSINEE - Sometimes sports can mean more than just a touchdown or a three pointer. Sometimes, it can mean a memory that will last a lifetime. 

For the Mosinee football manager, he experienced one of those moments last Friday night.

"When I became football manager I thought, hey, I can practice that and sure enough, I was able to nail a couple of kicks," said senior, Dylan Hill.

In Friday nights game against Wausau East, Dylan was able to nail a kick outside of practice.

"I felt happy and anxious," said Hill.

Hill is a senior student manager who's been with the team all season.

"He makes us better, honestly," said senior Jose Mohr.

Hill has done more than make the team better on the field. He's shown them how to give back to a good friend.

"That's one of the moments that we're looking to create and that's a memory our guys will never forget," said head coach, Craig Martens.

Letting Dylan go into the game to make the kick was the team's idea. They had been telling Dylan to get ready for weeks.

"We told him we would get him in one of these times in a game and he said 'yeah, right' and we ended up getting him," said Mohr.

Mosinee beat Wausau East 42-17 last Friday and will play Onalaska on Friday, October 20th for the first round of playoffs.
