He said the varsity achieved a goal of completing 80% of their passes that hit receivers hands. Kaden Wallace was quarterback for all three wins Saturday. Coach Young said Wallace is getting a better feel for calling plays. Coach Young said Wallace’s favorite targets included Kylan Wade, Detrick Clayton, Chase Haney, Landry Meskimen, Zack Tiemeyer and Campbell Cody.
