HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Hastings High Quarterback, Jarett Synek tossed for 266 yards to go with 5 touchdowns in the Tigers blowout win over Gering last Friday, Sept. 20.
"I had time to throw the ball and the receivers got open. There was some throws that weren't very easy that i made because of the receivers running their routes," Synek said. "We finally got a couple deep balls and when we are catch the balls that are going 40 plus yards for us. I feel like we're unstoppable when we do that."
In 2018, Synek waited in the shadows behind Alex Swoboda, now this season he has the reins of the offense and it doesn't seem like Head Coach Charlie Shoemaker minds too much.
"Even as a first year starter. His leadership on the field and in the huddle is second to none. The guys on the offense trust him and respect him," Shoemaker said. "They know that he is going to put them in the best chance to win the game. His just has that aura about him that he can lead the team."
The Tigers lost a host of lineman from last year's team but it has not stopped them from continually slinging the ball on offense.
"It's fun. It makes it fun to watch for you guys. It's fun to throw them and even when we drop them it is still like making the defense adjust to what we're running rather than what we want to do," Synek said.
This Friday, Sept. 27, the Tigers hit the road to face Crete.
