Xavier Wishert

TUSCOLA — Entering the 2020 season with a young set of skill players, the Jim Ned coaching staff was hoping to buy some time for a group fresh faces to mature. 

It was a must if they were to match last season’s 7-4 finish in a difficult district. 

They may have found an answer in junior running back Xavier Wishert — currently averaging 12.9 yards per carry to give the Indians (2-1) a reliable source of yardage.  Entering this week with 453 yards and eight scores on 35 carries, Wishert was on pace for a 1,500-yard, 26-touchdown season before the cancellation of Friday’s home game with Snyder due to COVID.
