SUPERIOR, Wis. – In most levels, a football team sticks with one quarterback from the start to the finish.
But if you are the Superior Spartans, you believe two is better than one.
In the first 3 games, the team has used senior Jarrett Gronski and junior Kaden Kimmes at the QB position. A move head coach Bob DeMeyer says was easy to make.
“It’s something we did plan for and we were able to do that because of the preparation they put in. They’re two great athletes, they put a lot of time and effort in the weight room and just quarterback fundamentals and just everything about being a great teammate,” said DeMeyer.
And it’s paid off as the Spartans are outscoring their opponents 127 to 13 with an unbeaten 3-0 record.
“The gameplan that these coaches put in every week. Then our boys upfront, the hogs that we call them, they’ve done tremendous things. Kaden, he’s been working hard on that throwing arm and he’s been leading the team great,” said Gronski.
As for Kimmes, he says he sees similarities between Gronski and himself.
“I feel like both of us do what we do to make the team better. Whether it’s run or pass and keep the ball in our hands,” said Kimmes.
They do have differences as well when Gronski isn’t in at quarterback he takes snaps at the running back position.
“At quarterback, it’s a little harder, because you have to read the defense but it’s still playing football and I love it,” added Gronski.
Head Coach, Bob Demeyer realizes that this is a different approach but he’s sticking to what works.
“We’ll go into each game with a plan like we always do. The plan is to continue using both of them. They both have a specific set of skills, things they do very well. And we’re going to utilize those skills,” said DeMeyer.
Overall, 2 quarterbacks or 1, they all have the same goal in mind.
“As long as the team’s winning, I don’t think it really matters,” said Kimmes.
Superior will travel to Eau Claire Memorial on Friday.
