Expectations sure are high for the Aurora Husky football team, particularly their offense.
Just ask the athletic trainer.
“Bogging down a little bit,” Jordan Stithem said when Husky head coach Kyle Peterson called a timeout with 6:30 left in the first half and Aurora facing a fourth-and-2 from the Wahoo 30 on Friday night.
At the time, the Class C-1, top-ranked Huskies were on their sixth offensive possession and had scored four times already. The final score would be 55-21 over the third-ranked Warriors.
After the timeout, record-setting quarterback Baylor Scheierman hit Jordan Stevenson for 7 yards to extend the drive, then on the next play he found Stevenson down the right sideline for a score and a 34-14 lead.
“Bullets,” Scheierman said as he left the field after his fifth touchdown pass of the night. It had taken not quite 18 minutes to rack up 346 yards passing on a defense that had only given up 19 points in their first two games.
