“Special” is the only word Wilson coach Doug Dahms needs in his description of senior Cam Jones.
Jones had another special night Friday, rushing for more than 100 yards and accounting for three touchdowns to help Wilson defeat visiting Cedar Crest 36-13 in a Lancaster-Lebanon League Section 1 football game.
Junior quarterback Tommy Hunsicker also came up with some key contributions to help the Bulldogs (2-0, 4-1) defeat the Falcons (0-2, 2-3) for their fourth straight win.
Dahms was a little more cautious in his description of Hunsicker, who in his fifth game as a starter threw three touchdown passes, rushed for 81 yards and even caught one of his own passes for 11 yards.
“He’s getting there,” Dahms said. “He still needs to work on some decision-making skills. We’ll look at the film and we’ll make the corrections. He’s a smart kid, he’ll get better.”
Which could only open more opportunities for Jones, who scored on runs of 8 and 27 yards in the first 14 minutes to help Wilson jump to a 15-0 lead. Jones finished with 113 yards on eight carries and had two receptions for 54 yards and another score. He also rushed for a two-point conversion.
“He’s special,” Dahms said.
With Cedar Crest slowing the Wilson offense by keying on Jones and staying close with a touchdown late in the first half, Hunsicker stepped up.
He opened the second half with an 11-yard run, then caught his own pass after it was batted back to him by a Cedar Crest defender and ran 11 yards for another first down.
On the next play, Hunsicker connected with Edison Case for a 35-yard touchdown pass with Case laying out fully extended in the end zone to secure the grab that built Wilson’s lead to 22-7.
“It’s a great feeling,” Hunsicker said. “We work on it so much. We work on our timing, we work on our chemistry. It’s a great feeling when you connect like that on a big play.”
Hunsicker and Jones kept the good feelings going when they hooked up for a 48-yard TD pass minutes later to pad Wilson’s lead to 29-7 midway through the third quarter.
Hunsicker hit Jones in stride across the middle, allowing Jones to race for the end zone. Jones bowled over two Cedar Crest defenders near the goal line to reach the pylon.
“Whenever I can get Cam the ball, why not?” Hunsicker said.
But Husicker and his teammates are making Wilson more than a one-dimensional offense. Hunsicker tossed a 5-yard shovel pass to Brady Kline midway through the fourth quarter to complete his evening.
Hunsicker finished 8-for-12 for 127 yards and with growing confidence.
“We knew we had great potential,” Hunsicker said. “We’ve gotten a lot better.”
Cedar Crest struggled on offense after losing starting quarterback Jay Huber to an injury in the first quarter. Huber returned briefly in the third quarter but had to leave again due to the injury.
The Falcons scored on a 1-yard run by Fernando Marquez in the second quarter and a 3-yard run by Alex Abreu in the third.
