Greyhounds answer Trojan challenge

Rolando Peco began this football season as a prospective Duluth East Greyhound, practicing with Bill Cortes' squad through parts of the summer. Then he suddenly left the team, shrouded in mystery, to return to the Duluth Central Trojans.

Rolando Peco began this football season as a prospective Duluth East Greyhound, practicing with Bill Cortes' squad through parts of the summer. Then he suddenly left the team, shrouded in mystery, to return to the Duluth Central Trojans.
Several East players had heard that Peco returned to the Trojans because he, "Wanted to win some games," which raised the ire of the resurgent Greyhounds.
On Friday night at Griggs Field, Peco was treated like a human pinata by the revenge-seeking Greyhounds.
"It was in the back of everyone's minds," said East running back Justin Davis. "It was some of the reason why we were so powerful from the beginning."
When the game ended, it was clear that East had exacted its revenge, trouncing the Trojans 55-0.
Davis rumbled for 158 yards and two touchdowns in just over a quarter of work to lead the 'Hounds attack.
"It was just so easy," said a surprised Davis. "It seemed like the hole was always there."
The convincing win lifted the Greyhounds' overall record this season to 3-1.
Changing places?
On Monday, Duluth Central Activities Director Kerry Louks said that Peco had applied for transfer from Central to Duluth East High School.
"He's begun the process," said Louks.
Should the transfer request be granted, Peco will then be at the mercy of Duluth East, the incoming school, and the Minnesota State High School League to determine his athletic eligibility.
