SHAWNEE — The Bishop McGuinness Fighting Irish wasted little time in their quest to conquer Class 5A football this season. The previous Class 4A powerhouse easily dismantled its first 5A opponent of 2012 during Friday night's 32-13 win over the Shawnee Wolves.

McGuinness doesn't plan on stopping there.

“Our goal this year is to become the first McGuinness football team to ever win a 5A state title,” said Irish quarterback Jacob Lewis.

Lewis is a big reason why Carl Albert, Guthrie and the rest of the 5A gang might need to take notice. The 6-foot-3 junior was unstoppable, throwing for 104 yards and two touchdowns on just 14 attempts and rushing for 132 yards and a couple of scores.

Lewis played running back as a sophomore last season but looked like a natural passer Friday night.

“We had a really good quarterback last year, so I understood why they played me at running back,” Lewis said. “But I was really eager to get back to playing quarterback.”

Lewis said he was clocked at 4.4 in 40-yard dash over the summer, and he certainly looked quick in leading the Irish in rushing.
