Pine City head football coach Jared Polzine has called junior Adam Olson “The Freak,” because of the crazy things he can do with the football, but not even a mad scientist could concoct the performance, Friday, of Pine City’s offensive leader.  Olson scored four touchdowns in the Dragons 26-14 win over Rush City.

Olson’s big night started on Pine City’s second play from scrimmage.  After the Dragons defense forced the Tigers to punt after a three-and-out, quarterback Nate Wendorf connected with Olson on an 88-yard slant.  Olson outran several Tigers for Pine City’s biggest play from scrimmage on the year.

Pine City scored on their first three positions.  Olson ran in a 40 yard touchdown on their second drive and punched one in from ten yards on a fourth down early in the second quarter.

Olson says the credit goes to the offensive line.

Pine City jumped out to a 20-0 lead, but the Tigers didn’t go away without a roar.  In the second quarter, senior quarterback Justin Bosman connected with wide receiver Jon Watts in the back of the end zone for a 22-yard touchdown pass.  After the half, the Tigers got a 56-yard touchdown run from Josh Marty to cut the Pine City lead to just six, 20-14.  But on the ensuing drive, Olson scampered 76 yards for his third rushing touchdown of the night.

Olson talks about his final touchdown.
