Simonsen's gutsy call lifts Prairie

Dakota Simonsen, a sophomore with absolutely no varsity experience, was minding his own business on the sideline Friday night when Cedar Rapids Prairie quarterback Trey Beckman was injured late in the third quarter and had to leave the game against North Scott.

Prairie Coach Mike Morrissey sent Simonsen into the game against the No.7 Lancers with the score tied, 7-7, and all the fans hooting and hollering.

"At first I was thinking, 'Oh crap,'" Simonsen confessed later. "I was nervous. First varsity game. Homecoming. And they're one of the better teams in the state."

Simonsen took a deep breath and made a gutsy call that resulted in the winning touchdown as Prairie topped North Scott, 13-7.
