Kingsford passes no-huddle test

KINGSFORD - Kingsford passed Grayling's "no huddle" test Saturday in a Division 5 football pre-district at Flivver Field.

Grayling's rapid-fire, pass-happy offense started every play without a huddle. The Vikings lined up offensively, waited for Coach Tim Sanchez to send in a play and they went into action from there.

Kingsford, with five turnovers including four interceptions, checked Grayling 36-14. The Flivvers pulled away in the second half after leading 14-7 in the second quarter.

"I thought we were ready for it," Flivver coach Chris Hofer. "It's hard to see no huddle on film. We practiced against it and did a pretty good job.

"We were able to get some substitution in. Once we found something we liked we stuck with it."

While Grayling sent in offensive plays, the Flivvers had to counter just as quickly with defensive signals.

" It wasn't too bad," said Flivver back Reed Larson who rushed for 181 yards and three scores along with seeing spot duty defensively. "We were prepared for it all week at practice we were used to it."

The Flivver offense helped out with ball control, keeping the football for more than 14 minutes in each half. This helped rest the Flivver defense and keep Grayling's offense off the field.

Although Flivver safety and wide receiver Aidan Wienke, who intercepted two passes and caught a touchdown pass, didn't have much energy after the game.

"I'm exhausted," Wienke said with a smile.
