No stopping Minnerly

I couldn’t even jinx him with Thursday’s feature story. Minnerly’s ability to scramble, throw on the run, throw with precision, run bootleg and option-pitch and occasionally go long, coupled with clock management, proved the difference in the East’s comeback 17-14 win over the West in the All-Star Summer Classic football contest in front of a full house at Central Valley. CV’s Tyler Cochran led all tacklers with seven solo and two assists.

“Minnerly, what can you say?” said coach Dave Carson. “What a great competitor, one of the great ones to come from Spokane. He has a great knack for making plays.”

The Ferris senior enabled Gonzaga Prep’s retiring coach to go out a winner.

“That’s the way it should be,” said Carson. “No regrets. The assistant coaches did a helluva job. It was a helluva game.”

My game story for tomorrow’s Spokesman follows.
