High school football: Timeout with ... Tanner Baird, Spearman senior quarterback and linebacker
amarillo.com / Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:28:03 +0000
Last season, Spearman quarterback Tanner Baird was part of a 1,000-yard duo with running back Beau Brown, as both rushed for over 1,000 yards. That could happen again this year, as Baird is the team’s leading runner with 405 yards in three games. In last week’s 40-7 win over Panhandle, Baird pulled off a rare double, throwing for 172 yards and running for 153 yards and three touchdowns, while Brown ran for 172 yards. But defense has probably been the biggest story of the season for Spearman, and Baird’s been a part of that, too.

His three interceptions played a big role in a season-opening loss to San Francisco, and the difference a week later at Tennessee was the rushing attack led by DeMarco Murray.
Romo has been called a lot of things in eight years as the starting quarterback in Dallas. Game manager isn’t one of them.
