Athlete of the Week: Amherst's Chris Zblewski

Posted:

Chris Zblewski filled up the stat sheet on Friday night.  


On the road against Wild Rose, the Amherst quarterback threw for 117 yards and four touchdowns.  In the Falcons' option offense, he also ran for 92 yards and two scores.  
And with the Falcons up big, he didn't take a snap in the second half.


"The backs and receivers were able to get into open spots for me to throw them the ball," said the Amherst signal-caller.  "And the backs were able to get to the outside, get to the edge and pick up a lot of yards for us."


"He took what the defense gave him, which is the sign of a good quarterback, he didn't try to force it," said Amherst head coach Mark Lusic.


Teams in the CWC-8 know Zblewski's name.


He was the leading passer in the conference a year ago and was third in the league in rushing.  
But the guy on the field on Friday was beast-like.


"He's a different animal this year, no doubt," Lusic said. "The passing game is really starting to come into play here, and he's becoming a dual-threat for us."


"When I'm out there in the zone, it feels like anything can go right," Zblewski said. "When you're in the zone sometimes, even if you do something bad, something good will always come out of it."


He and the Falcons will look to keep that going this week against rival Pacelli at home.
