Radnor might have been kicking itself after a somewhat stumbling start on offense Friday night against an ailing Strath Haven team.
In a tied game in the second quarter, the home-spun but injured Panthers possessing the momentum, it was time for the Raiders to go to a weapon skilled in the art of leaving defenders stumbling in his wake.
Jack Wilson caught a screen pass in the flat, turned and started to spin. Using almost the entire width of the field, he serpentined through Strath Haven’s secondary to oohs and aahs from the crowd … and some of those admiring sounds seemed to come from the opposing stands.
By the time he ran out of room, Wilson had gone 59 yards on that play, setting up a first-and-goal from the 3. Two smashes into the line later by Jack Horvath, and Radnor had a lead it wouldn’t relinquish en route to a 40-12 victory.
It was a memorable play by Wilson, and it wouldn’t be his only one of the night. Along the way, he would also dodge any and all credit.
