Howie Kangas likens his football team's offense to that of a basketball team. If that's the case, 6-foot-7 quarterback Ben Bucholz is a perfect guy to have running the show.


Bucholz has commanded the Yellowjackets to a 2-0 start this season behind 337 passing yards and four touchdowns while completing 56.5 percent of his passes.

"We're pretty much just out there setting screens and letting people shoot," Kangas said. "And Ben is running every facet of our offense very well."
