Scheible goes for OVC record against Tennessee State

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Southeast Missouri State University football team finally notched its first win over the weekend.

The Redhawks are now looking for the team’s quarterback to write himself into the record books.

Senior quarterback Matt Scheible has helped lead the Southeast Missouri State University football team to several records over the last 3 seasons.

Last year the team won the first OVC conference championship in school history, while tying the record for most wins in a season with 9 games.

Coach Tony Samuel says Scheible has been a key part of the offense in his years at Southeast.

Aside from being the play caller, Samuel says Scheible is a hard worker who studies film and does what it takes to get the job done.

"He’s got a pretty good idea of what’s going on out there. He’s got the ability to change plays at the line of scrimmage, Samuel said. "We’ve given him the freedom, now for almost 3 years, to do some of those type of things. He’s just a great student of the game and he’s got the athletic ability to back it up."

Scheible is going for a personal record this season. He is trying to become the first quarterback in OVC history to rush for 2,000 yards and pass for 4,000 yards.

Scheible and the Redhawks travel to Tennessee State University Saturday at 6 pm.
