The last several weeks haven't been easy for Ohio State quarterback Austin Moherman. "It's been a tough situation," said Moherman, a sophomore who played at Capistrano Valley High. Moherman completed 20 of 41 passes for 214 yards in the first two games, but lost the starting job to another sophomore, Steve Bellisari. Bellisari passed for 159 yards and two touchdowns when he took over for Moherman against UCLA. "After that, I was on the shelf for a while," Moherman said.

Austin Moherman knew exactly what he wanted. His goal was to be the Mission Viejo High varsity quarterback before his junior year. So, from the be-careful-what-you-wish-for file, Moherman looked over the Mater Dei defense late last season. Here was a freshman being asked to decipher and beat--not to mention survive--one of the most vicious teams in Orange County. It would be enough to make most experienced quarterbacks tremble in their cleats. But Moherman was too concerned to be scared.

Austin Moherman, who transferred to Capistrano Valley from L.A. Wilson after playing there one week, made his debut at quarterback Friday with an 11-for-23 passing performance. He threw for 123 yards with two interceptions. Moherman, by design, replaced Tim Hirchag on the first series of the second quarter. Hirchag completed one of three passes for eight yards. This week against El Modena, Hirchag will again start and Moherman will come off the bench.

Austin Moherman always envisioned a day like this--sitting back in the pocket, surveying the field and completing his first 20 passes. In the dream, there were always 90,000 Ohio State Buckeye fans in "The Horseshoe" chanting his name. Moherman never imagined such a game would take place before 2,000 fans in Terre Haute, Ind., while he was wearing the maroon and white of Southwest Missouri State, a Division I-AA school.
