Over the past three seasons, you've heard the call Marso to Vandeberg for the touchdown a lot. Senior quarterback Chase Marso has thrown for almost 5-thousand yards and 48 touchdowns in his career. Senior wide reciever Matt Vandeberg, an Iowa Hawkeye recruit, has 32 career touchdown catches, which are the most in school history.
"We try to read defenses to see what they will do. When Chase first started, it took some time to get on the same page, but now everything is going great." says Vandeberg.
"He's fast. Last year he could run further than I could throw it at times. But as I've grown and gotten stronger, I throw it out there and he gets it." says Marso.
But the Lynx have a lot more weapons than just those two. Running back Tony Tripp and wide reciever AJ Garrow have also played a big role on a team that's put up more than 40 points in five of their nine games. 71 points were scored in a win over Mitchell.
"We worked hard in the offseason, and a lot of guys who didn't play last season have stepped up." says AJ Garrow.
But the key to the Lynx may be on the other side of the ball.
"We knew in the offseason we had to work on defense. We've always been able to score, our defense had to give up less points. And they've done a great job." says head coach Chad Garrow.
And they hope it all comes together for a state championship.
"That would be the cumulation of all of our hard work. It would be great to end it in that manner." says Marso
