QB DILEMMA AT G-K
October 18, 2011Genoa-Kingston High School
GENOA – Throughout the season, Genoa-Kingston football coach Travis Frederick has been honest about his team’s lack of talent.
The past two games, the Cogs (1-7, 0-4 Big Northern Conference East) haven’t even had all their players.
Junior quarterback Adam Price missed his second straight game because of illness in Friday’s 40-17 loss to Marengo. Sophomore Tyeler L’Huiller replaced Price in the starting lineup again. This time, L’Huiller was saved for all four varsity quarters, and the offense had one of its better games of the season.
Frederick didn’t name L’Huiller his quarterback for the season-ending game Friday at Harvard, but he didn’t rule it out either.
“You’re going up to Harvard, and Harvard’s a tough team,” Frederick said. “We’ll have to put what we think is the best situation to move the ball. The thing with Tyeler is he has that extra dynamic – he’s got some speed. And he’s not afraid, you can tell that. He’s aggressive with the ball.
“He makes mistakes, there’s no question. He’s a sophomore. He plays like a sophomore. He makes some good plays, he makes some bad plays.”
For the first time this season, G-K also was without one of its top offensive weapons: Gabe Williams. Frederick said the junior running back is academically ineligible but will return next season.
“Gabe, we tried him at halfback this year, and I don’t know if it’s still his natural position or not,” Frederick said. “We’re still going to figure out what’s best for him. I’d like him to play some more halfback. He’ll be a kid who helps us a lot as a senior.
"You know, when he has that kind of speed, if he can get any kind of edge ever he’s gone. There are not many kids in this league who will catch him.”
