Amherst takes the title


In its first trip to Camp Randall Stadium for the state title, Amherst wins the Division Five state championship as Caleb Glennon stepped in for an injured QB Chris Zblewski, scoring early in the first quarter and not looking back.

The Falcons defense held Lancaster until late in the third quarter when Troy Baker caught a pass from Nate Tranel, taking it home for 36 yards and tying the game at seven. Amherst responded quickly as Glennon again found a target, this time it was Max Strand in the corner and the Falcons take the lead.

Then Ryan Makuski seals the deal with a pass to Joel Biadasz with two minutes left in the game. For the first time, the town of Amherst has a state champion in football. 

"It was unbelievable, I thought we were going to come out a little bit shell-shocked," said Glennon. "I think we did when everybody first walked in they were like oh my gosh this is amazing. But we did a good job of settling down once the game got started."

"We're like a family our senior class, we do a lot of things together and it makes me happy to end our season the way we did," says injured QB Chris Zblewski

This is a program that four years ago that finished with a record of one and eight, then Coach Mark Lusic took over the program and tonight after the game the team's seniors asked Lusic one thing: "Are you satisfied Coach?" and Lusic answered with a resounding yes.
