Huskies show off their run game in season and league opener.

The Douglas County Huskies used strong defense and a punishing run game to win their league and season opener 35-6 over the Gateway Olympians.  New Husky quarterback Will Arnold showed he was more than capable of making the transition from receiver to QB as he ran in two scores on the evening.  Along with Arnold, junior running back Jose Astorga proved he was ready to shoulder the run load as he had three touchdowns in the win.  Douglas County jumped out to a 21-0 halftime lead and never looked back.  Things may not come so easy next week as Douglas County takes on what looks to be an improved Arapahoe squad.

 

Bottom Line:

Douglas County looks once again to be one of the top teams in 5A and will use a formula of strong defense and a solid run game to contend.  With Arnold at QB the Huskies have a very athletic game breaker to join Jose Astorga and Ryan Misare in the backfield.

 

Game Ball:

Nothing makes a coach more nervous than the first start for a new quarterback.  Will Arnold alleviated those concerns with his two touchdown performance.
