Mercer High’s football team was winless entering Saturday’s District 10 Region 1-A contest with Kennedy Catholic. But the three opponents to whom the Mustangs lost collectively were 11-0.
So to Mercer mentor Pat McClearn’s mind, the jury was still out on what his 2010 edition is — or will become.
Mercer amassed 350 total yards — including 310 rushing — and the Mustangs made the most of the matinee at Butala Stadium en route to a 35-0 rout.
Joe Hess and Jordy McClearn manufactured 96 and 95 yards rushing, respectively, and tallied 5- and 1-yard touchdown runs. Also, Billy Selders scored twice from 1 and 5 yards, Aaron Collins connected for a 24-yard TD toss to Josh DeAngio, while Will Juergens drilled all 5 PAT kicks.
