After playing at Greencastle the past three years for three different coaches, Hayden Stuckwisch transferred to Brownstown Central this year and once again had to learn from a different coach.

Thankfully, though, Stuckwisch has adjusted and made his influence felt for the Braves as a wide receiver, cornerback, punter and punt returner.

Through eight games, Stuckwisch leads the team with 14 receptions — including three for a touchdown — for 204 yards.

“On run plays, I either run off the corner or block him, and then pass plays, I’ve just got to run the route and get open for the quarterback,” he said. When he knows the ball is coming to him, he said, “Before the play, I’ll see what kind of defense we’re going against, and then as the play’s going on, I look at what the defense is doing and adjust how I need to.”
