Williams leading potent A-O offense

High School Sports

ARGENTA (WCIA) — Blink and you might miss an Argenta-Oreana touchdown this season. The Bombers have one of the most potent offenses in the area, averaging more than 45 points per game. 

“We have a lot of different guys that can touch the ball and make a play at any given time so we’re really fortunate to have those guys,” Argenta-Oreana Steve Kirk said. “We try to spread the ball around as much as we can.”

The player charged with that task is second year quarterback Josh Williams. The junior starter has three other main weapon he tries to get involved in the offense in theStanley twins, Makhi and Makail, as well as Skyler Peterson. Each guy has scored seven or more touchdowns on the season.

“It is hard but Coach Kirk does a good job of balancing that out and it does depend on what team we’re playing,” Williams said. “Some guys might get more others but I think we’re all unselfish and know that it just goes week by week and you just got to show up.”

Williams is a classic high school dual threat quarterback, throwing for 750 yards and 10 touchdowns, while running for 513 more yards and 10 more TD’s.

“This year I’ve been using more technique to perfect more of my craft and I feel like that’s helped me out a lot this year,” Williams said.

“He’s been outstanding this year,” Kirk added. “The offense does run through him. He distributes the ball well, he gets us in the right play, he’s been super from the get-go.”

A-O currently sits at 6-0 on the season heading into Homecoming week against Arcola. Three more wins and the Bombers complete the first undefeated regular season since 1976.
