Noah Myers has always grasped the Annville-Cleona offense, he’s always understood it. Where he’s improved immensely is executing it, which involves making quick decisions at critical moments in plays.
There is little doubt that Myers’ managing of the Little Dutchmen’s veer/option offense has been a key to them winning a championship.
Myers’ execution was never better than it was on Friday night at home, when Annville-Cleona was claiming its share of the Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three title with a 34-14 triumph over Donegal, in its season finale. With his legs and right arm, Myers had his hands in 224 total yards and three touchdowns.
After tying the game at seven with an 11-yard touchdown jaunt in the opening quarter, it was a 69-yard Myers’ pass to Griffin Hertz that re-tied the game at 14 shortly before halftime. Myers also scored on a 28-yard scamper in the fourth quarter that provided the icing for Annville-Cleona’s cake.
The junior signal-caller finished with 95 yards rushing on 17 keepers. Myers also completed three of his six pass attempts for 139 yards.
