Connor Pickens shook his head.
âWow,â he said. âWow. This is unbelievable.â
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, Wapakâs offensive line took over, creating gaping holes in the Elida defense in the Western Buckeye League opener for both teams.
WAYNESFIELD â The heat may have hurt the Fort Recovery Indians at first.

W-G started hot and took a 16-6 lead in the first quarter. The Tigersâ junior quarterback Garret Miller threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and a third in the second quarter to lead W-G at a 30-12 advantage by halftime.
