The Jerseyville quarterback and Northern Iowa University recruit accounted for six touchdowns and 373 total yards in Jerseyville’s 66-24 Mississippi Valley Conference win at Waterloo High School.Waterloo also turned the ball over five times, leading to 31 Jerseyville points.“You can’t give that team an extremely short field on five occasions like we did, because a kid (Mitch Kimble) like that will make you pay,” Waterloo coach Dan Rose said.

Jerseyville (5-0 overall, and 3-0 in the MVC) moves into sole posession of first place with the win. Waterloo (4-2, 2-1)  falls to second, tied with Highland, in the increasingly tight conference standings.
