No. 23: Jack Krug bursts onto the scene, helps Brookville football return to the postseason

Coming off a 3-6 season in 2016, not much was expected of the Brookville football team

But two key additions – one coach and one player – led to a magical and record-setting 9-2 season with the only two losses coming to District 9 2A champion Clarion.

The coach was Frank Varischetti, who brought his no-huddle, up-tempo offense over from nearby DuBois.

The player was freshman quarterback Jack Krug.

Krug obliterated the Brookville passing record book in his first season throwing for a District 9-leading 2,856 yards and 40 touchdowns compared to just 11 interceptions while going 174 of 272 through the air. He added 209 yards rushing and three scores on 59 carries and had three 300-yard passing games including a season-best 387 yards on 10 of 12 throwing with four touchdowns in a win over St. Marys.

For his efforts, Krug was named the Eric Shick Agency D9Sports.com District 9 Rookie of the Year.
