The Fridley Tigers took control of the game Friday night against Richfield early and cruised to a 65-7 road victory. With most of the starters on both teams playing only in the first half – who made an impression and stood out amongst all the points scored and yards gained?
Kaleb Blaha Fridley quarterback/defensive back
Blaha did a little bit of everything for the Tigers. He has decisions to make on almost every play – should he hand off or keep the ball and run. Should he throw or keep it and run the ball himself? His decision making was almost flawless. In the first half, I think the Tigers had only one play the didn't gain yards – an incomplete pass that Blaha overthrew. Blaha also played defensive back on a defense that only allowed one sustained drive. He scored three rushing touchdowns and threw one touchdown to receiver Micah Niewald.
Micah Niewald Fridley wide receiver
Speaking of the junior, the play that Niewald made that stood out most was a simple throw into the flat. It should have only picked up five or six yards,
