Fomby wasn't hesitant to go get his ball.
"I knew the ball was intended for me," Fomby said. "When I ran the route I saw him there and I looked up and I said 'I'm going to get it.'"
Oswego and Joliet West played two low-scoring struggles last year decided by a combined five points. For a quarter-plus, history looked poised to repeat itself.
The Panthers had other ideas, Coleman's 1-yard touchdown capping the 91-yard drive. Their revitalized offense never looked back.
Oswego, at least in its two wins, appears ready to break out of its grind-it-out with defense and a run game mold.
Fomby is a big reason why, but fellow receiver Ben Graue got into the act Friday with five catches for 72 yards.
"I think we've added another dimension this year," Olson said. "It's opened things up that teams haven't seen. Teams expect us to come out and run power-I but we're shocking teams spreading it around."
