North Fayette Head Coach Ron Wymer knows that Solon is capable of the big plays. He says the big plays make them very dangerous.North Fayette in round one didn’t need to show their balanced offense as Junior running back Mike Moser totaled 179 yards with three touchdowns in the Hawks 49-26 win over Center Point Urbana. Senior running back Devin Fonley also put two touchdowns on the board along with two touchdowns. Miller says the Hawk offense is very explosive and presents their biggest challenge this season.
