Josh Schoaf, an assistant coach with Rosemount, held up his cellphone in front of the entire Irish team, who knelt in end zone after their thorough 42-0 walloping of East Ridge.
On the phone? Irish head coach Jeff Erdmann, who didn’t make the trip to Woodbury because he was sidelined by COVID-19.
“One more time,” Schoaf yelled, followed by the players’ loudest cheer of the night.
Their reason to celebrate embraced a season like no other.
Jordan Modrynski threw four touchdown passes Friday to lead Rosemount to its sixth consecutive victory after the Irish were unable to play in the first two weeks of the season because of COVID-19 issues.
The Irish (6-0) used a 25-point second quarter against host East Ridge en route to a 42-0 victory.
Modrynski connected on scoring passes of 11, 7, 11 and 46 yards, with Sam Kuseske on the receiving end for two of them.
East Ridge finished the season with a 4-2 record.
