As a third-year starting quarterback, Clyde senior Dylan Neuman is on a short list of the Big Country’s most experienced players at his position. But before this season, he’d never really been asked or needed to be “the guy.”
Taking over as the Bulldogs starter a few games into his sophomore season, Neuman was brought along slowly in 2018. And playing opposite an elite defense last fall, he was called on to do more game managing than gun-slinging.
Now in his final high school season, though, all that’s about to change for the strong-armed lefty. With most of last year’s defense lost to graduation, Neuman will not only be asked to be a playmaker, he’ll likely need to excel in that role for his team to achieve its goals.
Fortunately for the Bulldogs, those are demands the veteran signal caller is quite comfortable with. In fact, he welcomes them.
