Senior quarterback lighting up scoreboard for Woodmen




This weekend won’t be the first time Tanner Skeel has been a valued contributor to the Greenwood Community High School football team inside Lucas Oil Stadium.

During the Woodmen’s 37-14 loss to Columbus East to open the 2009 season, Skeel, then a seventh-grader, was one of the team’s water boys. “I even got to see my face on the big screen,” Skeel remembered, laughing.

If last week’s performance was an indication, expect No. 5 in the green jersey to appear again on the big screen when Class 4A Greenwood plays county rival Class 3A Indian Creek at 8 p.m. Saturday in Indianapolis.

A 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior quarterback, Skeel ran for five touchdowns and threw for another in last week’s 56-28 win against visiting Class 6A Perry Meridian. He finished with 157 yards on 14 carries, with TD bursts covering 11, 57 and 30 yards with a pair of 1-yard plunges thrown in for good measure.
