PREP FOOTBALL: GHS may have found QB of future

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Rockies may have won the game, but as far as the Goshen Redskins were concerned it was a highly successful debut for sophomore quarterback Cameron Kline.

In his first varsity start, the youngster ran for 211 yards on 31 carries and scored two touchdowns in a 35-12 NLC high school football game Friday at Plymouth.

“Cam has been our No. 2 quarterback all season,” Goshen coach Mike Cheviron said. “He did a phenomenal job. We have been using him in practice. You have to get your No. 2 some time in practice.”

Kline scored on a pair of 6-yard runs. One was at 1:31 of the second period and the other at 10:27 of the fourth.

“My first start at quarterback was interesting,” Kline said. “The whole team gave me confidence and I just did what they told me to do.”

That might be an underestimation of what he did by a little bit.

Kline had several plays where he appeared to be trapped behind the line of scrimmage only to get away and scamper down the field for positive yards. He had a long run of 46 yards on a broken play on a third-and-three situation.

“That is just me trying to make something happen,” Kline said. “I’m trying to make a play for my team.”

Junior starter Derek DeMeyer missed the game due to an injury.

“Coach (Tim) Koontz texted me on Monday and told me I was going to be the starter,” Kline said. “At first I was kind of nervous, but after going to practice started to calm down. I believe in myself and the team believes in what I can do.”

Kline completed 8-of-17 passes for 30 yards. So he accounted for 241 of Goshen’s 311 total offensive yards.

“Cam and Brady (Bechtel) did a lot for our freshmen team last season,” Cheviron said.

Plymouth gained a total of 436 yards with 247 rushing and 190 passing.

“Our defense made some good plays,” Cheviron said. “We had some youngsters playing, because we are so depleted at some spots due to injuries. Once we settled in on some things we played better.”

Plymouth took a 13-0 lead in the first quarter as sophomore Justin Drudge scored on a 34-yard run and senior Dakota Brooke caught a 67-yard scoring pass form sophomore signal caller Jack Barron.

The Rockies took a 21-0 lead as senior Michael Hartman ran 87 yards for a TD at 9:11 of the second period. Hartman scored on a 2-yard run at 7:01 of the third and senior  Elliott Eads had the final TD on a 13-yard interception return with 5:04 left in the contest.

Hartman ran for 136 yards on 16 carries and Barron connected on 7-of-10 passes for 190 yards to lead the Plymouth offense.

Senior John Trenshaw added 55 yards on 14 carries for the Redskins. Senior Chase Goodman had three catches for seven yards and classmate Sam Byler two for seven.

Goshen (0-8, 0-6 NLC) closes out the regular season next Friday at Wawasee. Plymouth (6-2, 4-2) is at NorthWood.
