Heritage: Sterling Shepard like a kid in a candy store...
By Robert Przybylo
Heritage Hall (8-4) vs. Pawhuska (10-2)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Pawhuska HS
Guess ya gotta be careful with what you say. I was at Heritage Hall to do video with Sterling Shepard and to work on a story that I won’t let the cat out of the bag on just yet (check out Wednesday’s paper).
Anyway, while there, Cooper Cloud said ‘hey, you been doubtin’ me on the blogs, huh?’ So I said ‘yea, and you keep proving me wrong.’
This reminds me a lot of last year. If you remember, Turner Petersen hurt his elbow late in the season and Cale Courtney took over for a game.
When Petersen came back, he became a threat as a wide receiver and a quarterback. Fast forward to this year.
Shepard went down with a concussion and Cloud has stepped in. Now they’re both back and each has the potential to make a big play.
So much so that head coach Andy Bogert is non-committal on who will be the quarterback.
It’ll probably be both of them. It worked real well last week having them both there. It definitely gives us a lot of options.” – Bogert
I did have a chance to catch up with Shepard, and you can see on his face how happy he is to be back out there.
Bogert’s phrase du jour (is that how you say it?) has been ‘chompin’ at the bit’ to describe Shepard. It’s clear Shepard understands the severity of the situation, but he also understands he can’t change the way he plays or he won’t be the same player.
Anyway, here is a short video with the sophomore stud.
