Before this season Bacher had led Jesuit to a perfect 31-0 record as the starting quarterback. This season Jesuit has already dropped two.
“We have a young team,” Bacher said. “It was kind of expected. But we’re beginning to play better now.”
Before Friday’s game Bacher had hit 42 passes out of 67 attempts for 799 yards and seven touchdowns. He has also rushed for 88 yards on 17 carries. That total includes sacks.
Bacher has committed to three visits. The first will go to the Arizona Wildcats the first weekend after the season ends. His next visit will be to Boise State scheduled for December 20th and the third visit is to Northwestern but the date hasn’t been set yet.
A fourth visit could be to Oregon State.
“I’m keeping my options open,” Bacher said. “There are no favorites at this time.”
