The Annville-Cleona football team’s option offense is based upon choices and making decisions on the fly.
The first choice is the dive to the fullback. The second choice is the quarterback keep. The third choice is the pitch to the tailback.
Most of the time the first option is the best option, but especially so when that Caleb Turner is that option.
On Saturday afternoon, Turner continued to be a very viable option for the Little Dutchmen, during their 42-12 homecoming victory over Columbia. The fullback once again led Annville-Cleona in carries with 19, and gained 97 yards with those totes.
Turner’s four-yard touchdown blast late in the second quarter gave Annville-Cleona a comfortable 20-6 margin at halftime. The score capped a 12-play, 80-yard march.
Turner leads Annville-Cleona in both rushing attempts and rushing yards gained this season. He has carried 127 times for 684 yards – an average of just under five yards per attempt – with five rushing touchdowns.
