Winamac QB Fox returning for title game at West Central

Winamac quarterback Fox returning for sectional title game at West Central

Winamac’s football team recorded an impressive 21-point win over Whiting in sectional play last week.

The Class A No. 3 Warriors (11-0) are now getting one of their top athletes back from injury for tonight’s 7 p.m. sectional championship game at West Central (8-3).

Junior Parker Fox is set to return from his broken collarbone injury for tonight’s final. Winamac coach Tim Roth said Fox will return to his starting spot at quarterback.

“He’s cleared. He’s going to play,” Roth said.

The Warriors are facing a West Central team they drubbed 51-0 six weeks ago.

A big storyline entering the contest is what happened last season, when the Trojans won 49-7 in the regular season and the Warriors turned the tables in a 49-13 win in the sectional final.

“We’ve been preaching to the kids that what happened last year could happen this year,” Roth said. “The team that gets beat traditionally makes more adjustments and plays harder than the team that wins. And we’re dealing with teenage kids that don’t always understand that. We’ve had a good week of practice. The guys will play hard. They know what they’re playing for and what they have to do.

“We know it won’t be as easy as the first time around. They had a couple turnovers early that really got us the early momentum that carried us through the ballgame. I’m confident if we go over there and play well we can win. It’ll be a 48-minute war. West Central will give everything they’ve got.”

Roth said Fox will also likely play at safety on defense tonight but probably won’t get the start there.

“He’ll definitely play in passing situations,” he said. “We’ll have to wait and see and get the feel of the game, how his stamina is. We’ve won five ballgames without him. We’re confident in the kids that took his place. We replaced him with three or four guys and they stepped up and played well for us.”
