Time to shift gears.
Last week it was Bath‚Äôs bruising back Aaron Smith.
Friday night it will be Celina Bulldogs quarterback Braden Billger and his arsenal of weapons.
The spread offense is coming back to Harmon Field when the 3-0 Wapakoneta Redskins host 0-3 Celina in a Week 4 Western Buckeye League matchup.
And the Redskins defense could have its hands full with Billger.
The junior quarterback has thrown for 820 yards on 70 of 124 (56.5 percent) with seven touchdowns and three interceptions already this season.
He has thrown scoring strikes to four different receivers.
WAYNESFIELD ‚ÄĒ As has been the case for several years now, the game between NWCC foes Waynesfield-Goshen and Fairbanks has determined the league title. This year, it appears to be no different.
‚ÄúAbsolutely,‚ÄĚ Waynesfield coach Gary Spencer said. ‚ÄúThe road to a league title goes through Fairbanks. The kids know that. They are a great football program.‚ÄĚ
Two petitions questioned by the Ohio Secretary of State‚Äôs Office are to remain on the Auglaize County ballot in November.
A 0.8-mill school renewal levy for permanent improvements in Minster schools and a liquor option for Sunday sales for Layla Inc., JTs, in the Kroger plaza in St. Marys, were reviewed by Auglaize County Prosecuting Attorney Ed Pierce upon the state‚Äôs request and he recommended they stay on the ballot.
For some, the mark of a Wapakoneta Redskin fan is easy to identify.
On some portion of the asphalt or concrete at a home or business, the familiar Wapakoneta logo, a ‚ÄúW‚ÄĚ with an arrow through the capital letter, can be purchased to show a fan‚Äôs support for the Redskins.
Convertibles used to transport the Wapakoneta High School court around the football field in the past are being replaced by golf carts.
‚ÄúIn the past, the homecoming court has paraded around the track in convertible cars to kick off the homecoming ceremonies,‚ÄĚ said teacher Julie Courter, who advises Student Senate, which organizes homecoming. ‚ÄúThis year, the court will participate in the parade using golf carts.‚ÄĚ
