“I had a slow start, but then I got settled in a little bit,” Hansen said.
He certainly looked settled by the end of the second quarter. Hansen directed an 80-yard drive that ended in a 34-yard touchdown pass to Jefferson with three seconds remaining.
The score sent the home side of the stadium through the roof and was one more confidence booster for a program that suffered through a 1-9 season in 2010.
After Thursday's win — and Hansen's performance — the Wolves' future looks bright.
“I told (Hansen) after our first scrimmage, ‘You're a winner, son,'” first-year Wolves coach Lance Manning said “He made his share of mistakes, no doubt. But he's a competitor, and we've got him three years.”
