West Metro Speed Reads
Only a few seconds left until the microwave dings, then your gourmet lunch will be awaiting you. Just enough time for a Speed Read:
Still no official word on Daniel Farrow’s availability, but when I stopped by Bronco practice on Monday, they were working like he’ll be there. The most interesting thing will be seeing him as a middle linebacker in Mustang’s 3-4 defense. He seems more suited for a safety position, but with his speed and decent size at 6 feet, 190 pounds, he could turn out to be a scary linebacker.
His biggest impact is likely to be at running back, where the Broncos have been hot and cold this season. Someone with his talent could add a new dimension to an already strong offense. We’ll see if the injuries that have hampered him during the last few weeks (ankle, hamstring) are a factor in his first varsity game of the year.
Despite 144 yards and another TD from receiver Kollin Retter last week, coach Todd Wilson isn’t concerned about defenses starting to double-team the junior, mainly because Yukon keeps so many receivers in their pass patterns, that opposing secondaries can’t afford to sacrifice a safety to watch one guy.
“(Quarterback Corben Jones) does such a good job of finding the open guy that teams can’t really do that,” Wilson said.
Putnam City North
Though not much went right for the Panthers in last week’s loss, coach Bob Wilson was pleased with Dre Holman in his varsity debut. After missing a month with a high ankle sprain, the sophomore got his first action in the 38-17 loss, rushing for 88 yards on 22 carries. No one will be taken aback by the numbers, but the quality of his work was was Wilson liked.
