One of the long-standing parts of what makes up a good football team is how the team improves over the course of the season. That goes for individual players as well.
For Dagan Meyers, Friday night’s Homecoming game against Willard was his moment to show how much he has improved individually. He did it by rushing for more than 200 yards and scoring five touchdowns in the Redskins’ 68-13 thumping of their Homecoming foe.
The Redskins jumped on Willard early and often, taking a 28-7 lead in the first quarter. The Port Clinton offense just kept pouring it on during the rest of the game to up their record to 5-3 on the season and 2-1 in the Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division.
In addition to Meyers’ heroics, Cam Gillum also had a good night with a pair of touchdown passes to Gabe Koselka for 85 yards and to tight end Adam Thorbahn for 26 yards. But it was Meyers who stole the show. Afterward, he gave all the credit to his offensive line.
The Redskins will host Huron this Friday in what is shaping up to be a big game for Coach Eric Leuthold’s team. The Redskins need to win their final two games against Huron and Oak Harbor to grab a share of the SBC Bay Division title. Huron easily handled Vermilion last week to set up this Friday’s key matchup.
