BISMARCK, N.D. - The Century Patriots are preparing to play West Fargo Sheyenne in the Dakota Bowl on Friday. The Mustangs are no doubt preparing to try and slow down this week's Sports Spotlight. Cade Feeney hopes to win the Triple-"A" title in his final football game.
Feeney plays basketball, baseball, and football for the Century Patriots.
He brings an air of confidence to the team and you know he does that in a very confident manner and just carries himself so well not only on the football field but in the basketball court, baseball diamond, and in the classroom. He does a lot of things. He brings out the true meaning of a student-athlete,” said Ron Wingenbach, Century football head coach.
This football season, Feeney continued his role as the starting quarterback and he has led the Patriots to an undefeated record and a return trip to the Dakota Bowl.
“Well, I think Cade certainly is multi-dimensional type quarterback, runs the ball, throws the ball, obviously, he punts, he does a lot of things for us. So, you know, you feel very blessed as a coaching staff to have somebody like that come along and we'll ride him as far as he'll take us,” said Wingenbach.
"He does anything you need him to do. He'll give a nice pregame speech to hype everyone up or he'll calm everybody down when everybody needs him to. He's just the jack of all trades," said Cody Sorenson, senior wide receiver .
Feeney is one of the best baseball players in the state. After guiding the Patriots to back to back State Championships, Feeney was named the 2019 Gatorade Player of the Year award. Shortly after that, he committed to play baseball at North Dakota State.
“Just making sure the coaches that fit in best, you know, baseball over football is a tough choice, but overall I just thought baseball would be my best sport that I can compete in and do very well in,” Feeney said.
When Feeney takes to the turf at the Fargodome on Friday, It will be the last football game of his career. Finishing with the Triple-A title...what could be better?
“I think, you know, watching his older brother Dalton do that in 2015, I think it would kind of be a topping on the cake so to speak if he could even get to that game. And you know last year he came up a little short, so I think it would mean a lot to him to be able to do that," said Wingenbach.
"Just leave it all out on the field, you know, you never know which play is going to be your last and don't know which games going to be your last, so you just have to keep pounding every game and hopefully come out with the best," said Feeney.
The Triple-"A" title game is the last one of the day and it's scheduled to start at 6:40 p.m. on Friday evening.
