DARIEN - Hinsdale South High School's starting quarterback position could only go to one person this season, and, after two games, was given to junior Robbie Regan. Read more about Regan's season from High School Cube News,
"Hinsdale South senior Jake Czajkowski and junior Robbie Regan both had their hearts set on being the starting quarterback this season.
Both, however, wanted what was best for the team.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Czajkowski started the first two games before switching to outside linebacker. Regan, who started the season at the slot position, has led the Hornets (2-3, 2-1) to back-to-back West Suburban Gold victories. In his three starts, the team is averaging 30.3 points.
“It means a lot,” Regan said. “I’ve been working all summer for this and it seems like I finally have the spot. It feels good. I’ll do whatever it takes to help our team. I have no problem playing slot. As long as the team needs it, I’ll do it, but I want to be the quarterback.”
Regan rushed for 154 yards on 28 carries and scored four touchdowns in the Hornets’ 34-21 win over Addison Trail Friday. He also proved he can get the job done in the air, hooking up with wide receiver Mark Watson for a 50-yard TD strike and finishing 6-of-10 passing for 94 yards.
The 6-2, 185-pound Regan has 10 rushing TDs in the past three weeks.
“He does a nice job for us,” Hinsdale South coach Mike Barry said. “He’s one of these guys that runs the option well. He still makes a few mistakes here and there, but he’s a guy we think can get better every single week and he’s proven to do that.”
While Regan may thrive running the option with 435 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns for the season, his passing is a work in progress. He threw two interceptions Friday and is 18-of-41 for 237 yards with two TDs and four interceptions."
