In a showdown of two of the top small school programs in the state, defending Division 6 state champion Colby pulled away from Division 7 top-ranked Edgar for a 32-6 victory in the Marawood Conference on Friday night. 

Senior Caden Healy was all over the field, leading the team with 26 carries for 200 yards and two touchdowns, also catching a 29-yard touchdown and pacing the way with seven tackles on defense.

His performance led him to be recognized as a nominee for the JollyGood player of the week award. The four other nominees are Nate Kollath (Sussex-Hamilton), Gabe Passini (Middleton), Sean Ryan (New Berlin West), and Michael Tyler Jr. (Shorewood-Messmer).
