NORTHWOOD, Iowa -- Senior quarterback Caden Schrage has the Northwood-Kensett Vikings out to another strong start. The Vikings sit at 5-2 on the season after crushing Janesville 41-19 last Friday.
Head Coach Dave Capitani said the success goes through his QB.
"Our offense kind of goes as our quarterback goes. We do quite a bit of read stuff," Capitani said. "He's done a tremendous job for us of making good decisions and take care of the football, making some big plays for us."
It's hard to miss that trademark mullet, but defenders are missing Schrage on the field. The senior leads the Vikings with 642 rushing yards and has combined for nine touchdowns.
"We just want to show our dominance," Schrage said. "We want to play old school football and really just run the ball."
It's on the defensive side he's showed his dominance. Schrage leads the state with 11 interceptions and has picked off a pass in every game so far.
"Just been a real ballhawk, he spends a lot of time looking at film and preparing," Capitani said. "His opportunities are there and he takes advantage of it."
