Columbus is 6-1 and appears headed toward a state playoff berth. Senior two-way standout Ernest Hausmann is playing a big part in that.
The Husker linebacker recruit continues to be a force on both sides of the ball for the Discoverers.
He was held without a catch in Friday's 55-28 win at Omaha Northwest, but he wasn't quiet defensively, finishing with seven tackles, including one behind the line of scrimmage.
Hausmann also had two pass deflections.
