In Mavericks' victory, QB Wolf does it all

Senior has 316 yards of offense, in on 4 TDs


"I think this was his best game, as far as the run reads go," Keen said. "I can't think of one that he missed. Jon is an explosive football player.

"In the last two weeks, we've made more of an effort to throw the ball, and his execution on third-and-long was very good. He stands back there and delivers BBs to the receivers."

The Mavericks pulled off a trick play to score the third touchdown. On the first play of the drive, Wolf passed back to Dennis Carter on the left, then Carter passed back to Wolf to the right. Wolf weaved his way through the defense and ran into the end zone for a 21-0 lead after seven minutes.

"Everybody in the huddle was like `let's go' and all jacked up when we called that play," Wolf said. "We ran it in practice against our defense, and they said we wouldn't score, but we had five blockers out there against 2 defenders. I just cut back; we knew it would work."

Wolf added a 4-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, and Sam Brockshus, who missed a 24-yard attempt two minutes earlier, hit from 36 yards on the final play of the half for a 31-0 lead.

The second half started with an eight-play drive that featured seven runs by Connor Thomas, with the final one covering 5 yards for the score.

After Wayne State scored on a field goal, the Mavericks added a fourth-quarter touchdown on Chad Zastrow's 2-yard run.

The Mavericks accumulated 456 yards of offense, with 251 yards coming on 40 rushes. Wolf had 111 yards rushing, 159 yards passing and 46 yards receiving for 316 total yards. Thomas added 77 yards rushing.

The defense held Wayne State to 176 yards on 61 plays, with 49 yards rushing. The Mavericks made two more interceptions, by Kelend Smith and Patrick Schmidt, bringing the season total to 19.
