Last Friday, Lengacher ran for 283 yards and seven touchdowns on a night he set North Daviess single season and career rushing records on the way to dismantling the Blackhawk defense. Helms said he is just happy that Lengacher is on his side as North Daviess continues on in the state tournament.
"As a coach, I'll put it to you like this — I thank God that he's the running back on our football team and we're not trying to defend him," Helms said.
North Daviess will travel to face the winner of the Perry Central-North Knox game. The Cougars didn't face Perry Central (7-2) this season, but they did beat North Knox (4-5) 35-33 in double overtime Oct. 11 at Cougar Valley.
