Coming off its fourth consecutive playoff appearance, Yukon will once again be expecting a lot of quarterback Hayden Somerville.
Somerville was among Class 6A’s top passers last year, his first as a starter. He threw for 2,314 yards with 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and he comes into his senior season with even higher expectations.
Yukon coach Todd Wilson, who returns to guiding the offense after one season coordinating the defense, has been pleased with Somerville’s leadership early in camp.
“He’s looking really good so far, and he’s working hard to bring our inexperienced receivers along,” Wilson said. “And it helps a lot that we’re returning most of our offensive line. That group works really well together.”
Wilson had called plays and coached quarterbacks every season at Yukon until last year. Now, he hands over the defensive controls to co-coordinators Chad Marchino and Adam Jewell.
