La Crosse, Wis. (WXOW) Not many quarterbacks get a chance to bounce back from a six interception performance.
But UW-La Crosse’s Evan Lewandowski made Mike Schmidt’s faith him pay off.
Lewandowski had a breakout game against Stout Saturday, throwing for 360 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions setting career-highs in three different categories.
This coming after tossing six picks in a loss at Platteville.
It was the breakout game UW-L had been waiting for from the highly-regarded sophomore from Lake Zurich, Illinois.
“As a full offense, we started rolling and it continued throughout the game. Personally, I feel like I’m back on track now,” Lewandowski said.
“He shows up to work and is committed to being great, has been committed to being great. I think you saw him play a lot more comfortable so I think the biggest part is, as the play caller, I got to keep getting him comfortable and getting him in a rythm and get him ready to play his kind of game. That was probably the most important part was saying ‘hey, we feel like we had a game plan that could get him feeling comfortable,” said Eagles head coach Mike Schmidt.
The 3-2 Eagles travel to 1-4 River Falls this Saturday.
