BLANCHARDVILLE, Wis. (WTMV) -- The Pecatonica-Argyle football team is setting an example by going above and beyond.

When fans arrived at the home game against Necedah Friday night, they were expecting a good game. What they likely didn’t expect was a teaching moment for us all.

"So this is where the ambulance was parked and this is where the wheels were when we tried to back up. You can kind of see the cleat marks from when we all ran over,” said Pecatonica-Argyle Football Player Brent Ritschard.

It was almost halftime and a Necedah player had a concussion and was in the ambulance but it got stuck on the side of the field.

"It was raining earlier before the game so it was very wet and mucky and as they were trying to back up the wheels were just spinning," said Ritschard.

Together, both teams pushed it out of the mud so Senior Trenton Whipple from Necedah's football team could get to the hospital.

“At that point, everyone stopped football and their main focus was getting me safe and getting me out of there,” said Whipple. "Even when you're the enemy team, you're still a big team working together when it really matters and it really mattered at that point."
