WAYNE – A new quarterback will get his first start in DII football when Saturday night rolls around for the Wayne State College Wildcats
Junior Zach Osborn of Harlan, Iowa (Harlan Community HS) broke his right thumb, which is his throwing hand during the second drive of last Saturday’s 48-7 loss to then #9 Minnesota Duluth.
Offensive Coordinator/Assistant Coach Logan Masters is in his fifth season as an assistant coach for WSC and his first in running the offense. Coach Masters said Osborn is getting surgery as soon as possible but is not sure what the time-table is for re-hab.
“Get it fixed ASAP and be good to go maybe spring ball,” said Coach Masters.
Osborn will medical redshirt the remainder of the season and still have two years of eligibility remaining.
Redshirt-Freshman Taylor Reedy from Norfolk (Norfolk High) played in majority of the game last Saturday. It didn’t shock Coach Masters that Reedy played with pose against a top 10 team.
“He stepped in, didn’t seem rattled,” Coach Masters added. “’He was cool and calm and made some great plays. He played really well for the circumstances he was thrown into.”
Reedy will get his first start against Northern State at 6 p.m. on Saturday. Osborn’s first start was against Northern State in a 29-27 triple overtime loss. Coach Masters said hopefully the team will not have to go triple overtime.
