Junior quarterback Ty Scherer had a game to remember Sept. 27 against Rutherford, as he passed for 148 yards, rushed for 90 yards, scored four rushing touchdowns.

Heading into the season opener Scherer had the role of backup quarterback on offense and short safety on defense. After the first game, Scherer was informed that he would be starting at quarterback for the second game of the season against Garfield.

Scherer was excited to make his first high school varsity start.

“Obviously you’re a little nervous, but I knew I had the support of all my teammates and coaches which made me confident I would do well,” he said.

Scherer said that his mindset didn’t change when moving from a backup to a starter.

“It’s not much different than before,” he explained. “I am expected to be more of a leader and know what the coaches expect out of me and make sure everyone knows they’re roles.”

Scherer learned the amount of work he would need to put in.

“I learned the preparation you need to put in to be successful and to make sure everyone knows the game plan and what other teams are going to try and do,” he said.

Scherer took the Panthers to over .500 for the first time this season with a win against Manchester on Oct. 5.

The Homecoming game this weekend will be at 1pm at home on Saturday.
