High school football: Wayne quarterback scores 8 touchdowns in win over Mounds
Ethan Mullins couldn’t be stopped Friday night.
The sophomore quarterback had 45 carries, rushing for 523 yards and eight touchdowns in Wayne’s (1-3, 1-1 District A-7) 69-49 win over Mounds (4-1, 1-1). It was Wayne’s first win of the season.
“We got the ball to start the game,” coach Brandon Sharp said. “And Ethan, our quarterback, he took over from the opening drive and he just had a great game rushing the football.”
As a team, Wayne rushed for 679 yards. The offensive line did a good job blocking, and Mullins kept finding holes all night.
“The kid’s got all the talent in the world, but we got to work on his passing,” Sharp said. “Once he gets that down he’s got all the tools to be a super star.”
Wayne will take on Wewoka (3-2, 1-1) next on Oct. 11.
