Quarterback Ready to Win
Montgomery County quarterback Eric Czerneski never imagined he would be standing at the brink of his senior season.
Czerneski and his teammates face the number one team in the state, Blair oaks in Wednesday's playoff game.
"It's really nerve-racking but you just have to treat it likes it's any other game," Czerneski said.
A game that could be his last as a wildcat. Czerneski enters the play-offs as the number one passing quarterback in the state. Throwing for more than 3,000 yards and 42 touchdowns this season.
"My receivers just catch it where ever I put it," he said.
"He knows if I'm going to break off a route or go short, he's know I'm going to do it. Most of the time I've turned around and the ball's already thrown," Montgomery County wide receiver Ben Longstreet said.
Whatever we want him to do in our passing game. He can do. Which makes it great as a coach. Makes me look an awful lot smarter than I really am," explained Coach Ben Blanks.
It's not just his arm but also his leadership on the field that drives the team.
"He's the most competitive kid I've ever coached," Blanks said
Coaches and teammates agree that it's this quality that led them to three consecutive winning seasons.
But something seniors Czerneski and Longstreet do agree on: To win the state championship.
The team was able to get a step closer... After beating Blair Oaks in a nail biter: winning 40-39. Montgomery County meets Centralia on Monday.
