High school football: Wayne's offense clicking after slow start to season

Wayne's offense has found its groove.

After scoring 8 points or less in its first four games of the season, Wayne's offensive production has picked up in recent weeks. The Bulldogs beat Wewoka 28-26 on Oct. 11 after beating Mounds 69-49 the week before.

Coach Brandon Sharp said there are a few factors that have contributed to Wayne's (2-4) recent offensive success.

"The offensive line has gotten better each week," Sharp said "And we've just finally found our identity, and it's the quarterback run game."

Quarterback Ethan Mullins has also been a big part of the team's recent success. In the last two weeks, Mullins has rushed for over 800 yards and 12 touchdowns as he's begin to see the holes better. Sharp said the sophomore started to settle in during Wayne's 14-6 loss to Stroud and has been running hard since.

The team has also gotten healthy after having some injured starters earlier in the season, Sharp said.

This week, Wayne will look to keep its offense rolling when it takes on Wynnewood on Thursday.
