If you’ve got outstanding play at the quarterback position, you’ve got a chance. Jay Huber provides the Cedar Crest football team a chance every time out, and a shot at a very good season.
On Saturday, during the 49th renewal of the annual Cedar Bowl game, Huber paced the Falcons to a 38-0 trouncing of Lebanon in his first varsity start. With the Cedars crowding the box to stop the run, Huber took advantage by locating receivers running free in the Lebanon secondary, time and time again.
Huber completed 11 of his 14 pass attempts for 210 yards and three touchdowns. His three touchdown passes went to three different Falcon receivers.
His first scoring strike covered 43 yards and went to Nolan Groff, and it gave Cedar Crest a 17-0, second-quarter lead. But before the half was over, Huber threw his second touchdown pass, this one to Ethan Heisey for 20 yards and a 24-0 Falcon advantage.
But Huber wasn’t through. In the third quarter, he connected with Aiden Shomp for a nine-yard passing score.
Athletic, smart and an accurate deliverer of the football, Huber appears to have a bright future in front of him – a future that is starting now.
