Former Kenton QB Alex Huston, who is on course to break some national passing records, finished last night with 276 yards passing, 80 yards rushing, three touchdowns (one rush), and three interceptions. For Houston, who guides the fast paced offense, was held in check by the Hillcrest defense.
Glendale Coach Mike Mauk, formerly at Kenton, told ozarksports.com his thoughts on Hillcrest’s game-plan:
“My hat’s off to their coaching staff and their team. Their coaches put together a great game plan, and their kids executed it.”
“One game is one game. Sometimes you have to find out what type of character you have as an individual and as a football team, and we’ll find out what type of character we have on how we respond and how we bounce back.”
