FOOTBALL: Pickens powers Wapak past Elida

September 3, 2011

Connor Pickens shook his head.
“Wow,” he said. “Wow. This is unbelievable.”
Yeah, that pretty much summed it up.
Pickens rushed for a career-high 267 yards, narrowly missing a Wapakoneta single-game record, to lead the Redskins to a commanding 29-18 win over the Elida Bulldogs on Friday night at Harmon Field.
After a tight first half, Wapak’s offensive line took over, creating gaping holes in the Elida defense in the Western Buckeye League opener for both teams.
