ELM CREEK, Neb. — It wasn’t long ago Elm Creek quarterback Beau Knapp wasn’t sure when he’d take the football field again.
The now senior along with a handful of other teammates were out due to injury. Now the team is healthy and off to a perfect 4-0 start.
“It’s been awesome couldn’t be going any better right now and been fun way better than last year,” said the senior quarterback Beau Knapp.
So, this year the team is focusing on the little things and one game at a time mentality.
“We just have a little bit of different fight. I mean we worked hard all summer and worked hard from the start of conditioning and its been all together since then,” said Knapp.
The 4-0 record was capped off by a huge come from behind win over Central Valley. Knapp threw up a Hail Mary right into the arms of receiver Trent Watkins, much to the surprise of everyone.
“Lineman gave me plenty of time I mean Trent got down field Jackson took the defensive back away and I threw it as far as I could and ended up in Trent’s hand,” said Knapp.
“I feel like if there was a camera on me, I was the last one to react. Standing there with my arms crossed I couldn’t tell if he caught it, I was trying to find a ref he put his arms up,” said second year head coach Josh Rhode.
Rhode and the Buffaloes know that momentum is huge and hope that that win will propel them to another level. Leading them is Knapp.
“it’s a tremendous asset to have a guy like beau Knapp as our quarterback he is even keeled doesn’t get rattled a great leader, shows up everyday model captain that you want as your senior quarterback, said Rhode.
With a bright future for the Buffaloes they’ll continue to ride their dual-threat quarterback as they continue to soar to new heights.
