KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Trent Hosick and Staley Falcons proved last season they could handle success. In the young 2012 season, the Falcons have already proved they can also deal with failure. Hosick led his team to a bounce-back win after the season opening loss to Lee's Summit West.
"We obviously had a heartbreaker week one. We didn't see that coming, but we believe that we are very good," he said.
The Falcons looked good in a 48-27 conquest of Raytown in week two. As usual, Hosick was a major reason for that impressive performance. The senior ran for three touchdowns and threw another in extremely wet conditions.
"It was raining really hard. So, I just told my guys, 'They feel the same exact way as you do. They're wet. They're cold. They don't want to come back out.' I said, 'Guys, just come out fired up and we will win the game before the second half even starts,'" Hosick explained.
Hosick knows all about winning. The Missouri recruit was the starting quarterback on last year's undefeated state championship team. He also notched an undefeated state championship season in wrestling. His shot at a perfect senior season is over. However, his ultimate goal is still on the table.
"We believe in our coaches. I believe in my teammates. We feel like we can go out and make some noise in the playoffs and, who knows, maybe make another run at it. We've got some improving to do, and we think we are going to do it," he said.
