Osage Prepares For Spartans
Junior Quarterback Kyle Crooks showed off his arm and legs in his first Varsity start, but he gives all the credit to the guys up front.
"The key to the win was the linemen pretty much, I mean we can't do much without them. If we didn't have them I guarantee it would have been a lot closer, but we still would have won," added Crooks.
The offense put up plenty of points, but Coach Dan Henderson credits the defense for the lopsided score.
"They played well the other night. They got after them a little bit, and ended up with six picks and that's you know, that's not something that's going to happen every week," commented Henderson
The star of the game was Corey Anderson. He had three of the Indians' six picks, but he knows the big plays won't come easy against the Moberly Spartans.
"They're looking a lot tougher than Buffalo. They're a pretty good team, they were a good team last year, and they're supposed to be a better team this year," said Anderson, the Senior Defensive Back for Osage.
"Very athletic and you know they got a lot of kids returning, and very athletic, and we'll have to play well to be the game winner," added Coach Henderson.
Even with a tough road test ahead, the Indians are confident.
"I mean if we play well, and they play well, we'll win," remarked Crooks.
