Area Male Athlete: Verndale's card coming up aces


It’s rare for a sophomore to start at quarterback for the Verndale Pirates.

Even more rare is that sophomore already has a year of starting experience.

But Dillon Card is a rare athlete. The sophomore stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 200 pounds. That size helped the Pirates’ starting quarterback carry the load during a 20-14 Pheasant Conference victory over Hillcrest Lutheran Academy Sept. 21.
