Interest is High in Meade

KSCB News - September 3, 2009 12:00 am

Next year, the Meade Buffaloes will join the Hi Plains League. If they were in the league this year, they would have the equal to or more players than anyone in the league. There are 48 players out for football at the 2A school. But for most of them, there varsity experience is limited. The Buffaloes return two starters on both sides of the ball from last year’s 10-2 team who made sub-state. Fourth year head coach Scott Moshier says this year’s team will be battle tested after going up against last year’s team day after day in practice. “People forget that those young kids have been going against those old kids all those days in practice for those other years,” Moshier said. “We expect our kids to have themselves in position to step up when it’s there turn. We’ve seen some great things from our kids and we are looking forward to it.”

Meade returns Dakota Benear teamed with all stater Taylor Headrick last year at quarterback. Benear played quarterback in passing situations. He threw for about 600 yards and ran for 500 yards last year. The 6’2″ 300 pound Trevin Pfannenstiel will block for Banear. Benear returns in the defensive secondary along with senior safety Kellan Hernandez. Moshier has big expectations for Banear. “He’s a great leader stepping into the role Taylor Headrick had last year,” Moshier said. “Now we don’t have switch quarterbacks when we go spread. We want to make sure he has his hands on every snap if we can.”

Moshier will be a guest on the Sportsguys Thursday morning between 7:37-9:00 on Talkradio 1270 and kscb.net.
