Fairview has catch-all crew: Receivers Smith, Washington reaching rare air


Aaron Snyder / The Independent

WESTWOOD With the hiring of Fred Ray, Fairview football rewrote the playbook and, in turn, the record book.


The first-year head coach and offensive coordinator Brent Wilcox implemented a fresh-look system that had the quarterback and receivers downright giddy.


Blake Smith, Antwan Washington and Alex Roy couldn’t contain their collective excitement back in August when the trio broached the topic of personal goals.


Smith, the lifelong Fairview Eagle embracing his chance to shine, badly wanted 1,000 receiving yards.


Roy, the third-year starting quarterback who delivered sevenfold more handoffs than passes last season, was gunning for 2,000 passing yards.


Washington, the first-time football player whose sole athletic domain had been the basketball court, was just anxious to see what he could do.


Entering Friday’s second-round playoff game at Raceland, the results are staggering.


Smith entered the previously unventured territory for an Eagle with his 121-yard performance against South Floyd on Friday. He’s at exactly 1,000 yards.


Roy’s offense has gathered up gobs of frequent flyer miles while traveling 2,443 yards through the air. His 275 pass attempts account for just 31 fewer plays than the team’s total rushing tries.
