Polk hosts conference foe Mitchell for HomecomingPublished 10:26am Friday, October 11, 2013
“They’re a very young team,” Ollis said of Mitchell. However, Wolverine players will have to contain the Mountaineers’ Oscar Cruz (No. 4), an excellent running back, and the visitors’ go-to receiver, Tre Carson (No. 30). Polk’s offensive line will also have to protect quarterback Reece Schlabach and their running backs from Alston Chance (No. 55), a six-foot-three-inch, 280-pound defensive lineman.
Of Schlabach, Ollis said, “He’s getting better every game. He’s getting more confidence being quarterback. His leadership qualities have improved since he became quarterback.”
Schlabach leads all Wolverines with 501 rushing yards, while passing for 1,037 yards and six touchdowns. Anthony Carson has caught 36 passes for 576 yards and five TDs.
This is fans’ last chance to watch the Wolverines at home until Senior Night on Nov. 8, when Hendersonville comes to town. Ollis’ squad visits Avery on Oct. 18, has an open date on Oct. 25, and is at Owen on Nov. 1.
“I’m hoping that the fans remember us while we’re on the road,” said Ollis.
