Decision. Decisions. Decisions.
Playing quarterback in the Palmyra football team’s offense is all about decisions. But through his grasp of attack concepts, Grant Haus has evolved into a superior decision-maker.
On Friday night at Buck Swank Stadium, Haus’ decision-making played a key role in the Cougars’ 21-17 season-opening victory over rival Hershey. Haus was his usual proficient self, as he tallied a pair of touchdowns with his feet, including the late game-winner.
With just over a minute remaining and Palmyra trailing 17-14, Haus ran one in from two yards away to get his Cougars’ season off on the right foot. Late in the opening period, Haus had staked Palmyra to a 7-0 advantage with a similar two-yard plunge.
For the game, Haus had his hands in 206 of the Cougars’ 292 total yards. The senior signal-caller completed 11 of his 20 pass attempts for 178 yards, to four different receivers.
In the spring, Haus is also one of the most accomplished boys’ lacrosse players in the area.
