Redskins Face Team of the Decade at Hutchinson

The two schools both have five state football championships. But the two programs are miles apart right now as 3-6 Liberal gets ready to visit 9-0 Hutchinson Friday night at 7 PM at Gowans Stadium in Hutchinson. Liberal senior center Kevin Archer says the Redskins must go equipped with confidence. “I know we can be them,” Archer said. “Everybody has to believe. So far I can see more people believing now but it’s not 100 percent. If we can have 100 percent we can go out and be a team like they haven’t faced all year.” It’s a tall order for a Redskin team who allowed 61 points against Bishop Carroll a week ago and has given up an average of 24 points per game. The Salthawks average 53 points per game and 435 yards per game. The Hawks give up 12 points per game. Liberal’s offense improved last week scoring more points than anyone (35) against Carroll. Junior quarterback Slader McVey is Liberal’s all time single season leader in passing yardage at 1,449. Last week McVey was 20-31 for 271 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. His main target junior Jade Cathey led the WAC in receptions 41 (which ties Ken Sherman’s team record), 701 yards (13 behind Lane Hensley’s team record), and eight touchdowns. Liberal averages 27 points per game. The game kicks off at 7 PM with Redskin Pre-game at 6 PM on Talkradio 1270 and kscb.net.
