Setting records through the air

Though the season record didn’t end as the team hoped, the football team still set a total of 12 individual records on offense along with one on defense.

The football team had an outstanding year on offense setting numerous records and scoring the majority of their touchdowns through the air led by the quarterback Jax Biehl ‘23.

“Our passing game was one of the best parts of our team,” Biehl said, “We wouldn’t have been able to be so successful without our receivers and our offensive line.”

James Olds ‘23 and Jackson Martin ‘23 led the team in receiving both finishing top 10 in the state for receiving yards. Martin had 1085 receiving yards setting the season record while Olds finished with 855 receiving yards.

“It was a good year for our receivers,” Olds said. “We fit in with the passing offense and it brought out the best of our abilities.”

In years prior, the football team had taken a run-first play style but they adapted to their players and were more of a pass-heavy offense. Having a pass-oriented offense is what made the offense successful.

“We really thought that our receivers gave us a good chance to move the football,” head coach Matt Edson said. “A pass-oriented offense in high school football is something that is very different than most offenses on our level.”
