McClellan pass break up

Waverly’s Jason McClellan breaks up a pass intended for Valley’s Dakota Secrest during the second quarter of Friday night’s homecoming battle. McClellan had an interception earlier in the quarter and returned the ball 23 yards.

It took a while to get started, but once again, it was another big night for the Waverly Tigers on offense as they surged to a 42-14 win over the visiting Valley Indians.

Waverly quarterback Wade Futhey threw for 5 touchdowns, 3 of which went into the hands of his twin brother Will. Penn Morrison secured the other 2 touchdowns, adding an interception and some big punt return yardage with a long return of 62 yards. Jase Hurd added a rushing touchdown.

Defensively, freshman Braylon Robertson led the way in tackles with 8, while having 4 tackles go for a combined loss of 6 yards. He also had an interception. Trey Brushart added 6 tackles. Wyatt Crabtee had 3 tackles that went for a combined loss of 14 yards, including a sack of Valley quarterback Carter Nickle for a loss of 11 yards.

During the halftime ceremony, Annie Silcott was crowned the 2021 Waverly High School Homecoming Queen.

The Tigers will travel to Wheelersburg next week for a showdown with the Pirates.
