In football, the term “red zone” is referred to as when an offensive unit moves the ball within the opponents’ 20-yard line.

It’s territory where defenses stiffen up, while offenses start looking at the pylons and the eventual six-point play.


For the Detroit Lakes offensive unit, it usually means a touchdown when they visit the red zone and over half the time, it’s senior quarterback Michael Herzog who is busting past the goal line.
