Mustain Leads Charge
Hoover Photo Gallery Hoover Keeps Title At Home Led by the number one quarterback in the Scout.com rankings, Mitch Mustain took his team to the championship game after a long road to get that far. "We lost our first one to Hoover this morning, so we had to fight back and play five games back to back to back," admitted the 6-foot-3, 200 pounder. "We had a few people dehydrated and getting hurt. We pulled through, but (Hoover was) the better team today." Mustain talking strategy with a coach "I am real proud of how our team battled and came back," said Springdale head coach Gus Malzan. "We knew (Hoover) was fresh and we were in their situation last year and won it. We just got a little tired. Coach Malzan knew he needed his star quarterback and knew that his defense and wide receivers were not the only tired players on the field. "Mitch is a leader and has a lot of toughness. He probably threw 180, 200 balls and his arm was tired, but he battled and hung in there." Mitch Mustain with a bandaged shoulder Long days of throwing are not over for Mustain, who now has a day of rest before heading to yet another competition. "I go home tonight and leave about nine in the morning on Monday to California for a week at the Elite 11. Once I get back from that, it is time to start practice and get ready for the season." Mustain is also ready to take a little pressure off in recruiting, though he is playing coy with naming any final teams or a leader at this point. "Right now, I am just trying to make my decision. As soon as I know where I want to go, and I am 100 percent sure, then I am going to commit. I have not really narrowed down my list, so there are still eight or ten teams that I am looking at still. "Just where I feel comfortable, and I feel 100 percent that I can live there."
