Watch Out For Brandon Warner

Goodwell, OK - It takes about 3.4 miles to catch Oklahoma Panhandle States’ career total offense record, but there’s a freshman quarterback who may have begun that journey.

The “QB” position in college football is a tough one. In order to be successful, it takes athletic ability, smarts, and poise – not to mention the respect of the rest of the team. It’s even more difficult when one is a freshman, and Warner became the Aggie field general in a game situation less than a month after donning an OPSU helmet for the first time.

At 6’1 and 205 pounds, the Kansas native (from Marysville) has the necessary size and he will probably grow some more as well. He is well liked among his teammates and when he steps into the huddle, he takes charge.

Warner is averaging over 100 yards per game in total offense so far this season in Coach Kyle Davis’ option based offense. He ran for a season high 155 yards in the Aggie win over Wayne State and has also shown a strong passing arm.

It’s going to take over 6,000 yards to be the OPSU total offense record holder. Football has been termed “a game of inches” and whether it is by the inch, the foot or the yard, you might keep an eye out for Brandon Warner . . . Aggie opponents will.

Warner and the rest of the Aggies will be on the road this weekend against a good University of Nebraska-Omaha team. Game time is 1:00 on Saturday afternoon and fans not making the trip to Omaha can catch all the action live from KGYN via internet broadcast.
