WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - A tie game against a good Halstead team, with just thirty seconds to go, Cheney Head Coach Shelby Wehrman says he wasn’t worried at all.

“I felt confident that if we could go down there and move the ball and shoot ourselves in the foot,” Wehrman recalled.

To that point in the game, the Cardinals had played well absent a few turnovers. With time winding down one of the things that helped push Cheney over the top, was junior Quarterback Harrison Voth.

“He can do it with his arm, he can do it with his legs, he is such a competitor that I really didn’t worry about us being able to go down and score. I knew we would be able to get it done,” he remembered.

The Cardinals did finish the job topping Halstead 40-34, the junior gunslinger threw a touchdown pass to ice the game.

“I was just thinking stay poised, stay composed, stay confident, and we will drive down the field. That’s what we did,” Voth said.

Voth entered 2020 as the starter in his junior year, after splitting the job a year prior. With the keys to the offense, Voth has helped the Cards' to an undefeated record. He credits the offseason work, and his teammates beside him.

“I feel like everyone has my back on the team and I love these guys,” Voth noted.

Off the field, Harrison is a straight A student, Coach Wehrman adds he’s become a leader in the locker room and has stepped in and stepped up for Cheney this fall.

“He is such a strong, courageous kid. He grows from that, he understands from his mistakes, he learns from his mistakes, he is always trying to get better and improve.”

That game winning drive a week ago? Voth says like this entire season, he was comfortable in the pocket, noting good offensive line play and dynamic receivers around him saying competition is why he plays the game.

“Competition like Halstead and Holcomb are some of the most fun games you’ll play. I’ll always remember them. That is why I play football,” Voth stated.
