McClenny setting records, leading dominant Rush Springs
By Zach West
There’s no denying that Rush Springs senior Dustan McClenny has had a stellar career.
Friday night against Dibble, the running back broke the all-time school rushing record of 4,362 yards that was set in 1989 by Tim Beard, now a coach at Lone Grove.
But while McClenny has always had the stats, he hasn’t always played to his potential. At least, not until this year.
“He’s playing better than he has ever played,” said Rush Springs coach Barry Foster. “We had to stay on him the last couple of years, because you would tell him to do something, and sometimes it just wouldn’t register. But he’s getting it done now. He’s taking on blockers at linebacker. He’s seeing the field like he never has. He’s doing a good job of calling our defenses and getting us lined up right. He’s definitely a leader of our team, and the guys look up to him and depend on him.”
Behind McClenny, the Redskins have dominated, winning five games by a combined score of 182-7. Friday night, however, will provide a tougher test as the No. 4 Redskins travel to take on upstart No. 10 Minco.
“Minco is the best team we’ve played,” Foster said. “It’s going to be tough.”
