He only needed three yards, but Sutton Pohlman made it look easy Friday night as he sprinted 51 yards on his first carry, easily surpassing 1,000 yards rushing for the season.
All smiles following the 56-14 win, the Mustang senior wasted little time shifting the credit to the linemen opening up the holes for him to fly through.
“It’s our line. They’re amazing,” Pohlman said after the game. “We have so many great players, who are working their butts off every day. They don’t get the credit they deserve, and they make this team what it is. It’s not me, Parker (Krusemark) or any of the backs.”
Pohlman finished the night with 110 yards rushing and now has 1,107 yards on the season, which puts the Mustang at No. 14 in eight man. He’s averaging 9.0 yards per carry and 123 yards per game this season.
Pohlman said he’s excited to move onto the Class D1 quarterfinals, which is a first for the team since 2008. The Mustangs will travel to Dundy County Stratton on Friday. Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m. central/ 2 p.m. mountain time.
“We’re taking it one game at a time,” he said. “We’re going to keep pounding and working hard and see what this team can do.”
