MV QB takes the lead in Day's absence

A moment of silence was dedicated to Karen Daltoso, the late fiance of coach Michael Woodward who passed away Tuesday night giving birth to their son McKaden Woodward. RB/DB James Day dressed and was prepared to play if needed, but quarterback <a href=><b>Ben Huebschman</b></a> threw for 366 yards and five touchdowns in the first half leaving the mighty Thunder up 45-7.

Day rested a sore hamstring as Mountain View rolled over district rival Heritage 55-13 in an emotional win Friday night. Playmaker Josh Baird was double-teamed all-night and was primarily used as a decoy. Huebschman completed his first pass of the second half and sat the rest of the way as the thunder cruised to the win with Coach Woodward up in the press box.

"The greatest feeling I've ever had was when I put on the headphones and heard his voice on the other end," said Ben.

Huebschman may be a real diamond in the rough this year, last year's Southwest Washington offensive MVP has not received a lot of recruiting attention yet, but that should change soon.

As for James Day, he seems to be favoring one school in particular. "I like Washington quite a bit. Randy Hart calls me and tells me they are still evaluating. I have an offer from Idaho, and I am traveling to Air Force this weekend on an official visit," he said.

Day said that it is highly unlikely that he will commit, "I feel great getting the offer from Idaho, it is a great program, but I now can wait for some other options," James said.

He should be able to go this Thursday against Hudson's Bay of Vancouver.
