Steven Cahoy is pretty good at new things.

Like a State Pole Vaulting title from last school year, given he didn't pick up the sport until last winter.

Now, Cahoy has a chance to return to something more familiar.

Playing quarterback.

"It's nice to get poll vaulting over with so we can come together as a team so we can start participating and practicing together," he said at the Islanders' second August session.

A busy summer schedule included national and regional competitions in the vault, something Head Coach Jeff Tomlin encourages to his athletes.

"Steven was there with our team a lot," said Tomlin. "As often as he could be this summer when he wasn't off becoming a better competitor and athlete."

Cahoy has the duty of replacing 6'5 quarterback Ryker Fyfe who led one of the most prolific offenses in GISH history.

But Cahoy is comfortable in his own skin and running Tomlin's quick pace offense.

"We did it sophomore year, junior year, and this year we're doing it. So I'm used to it," he said.

The lone holdover from last years offense is senior Jacob Cornelius, who did his off-season homework crafting chemistry with Cahoy whenever possible.

"Me and Stephen really clicked this summer getting on our passes pretty good."

The Islanders believe Cahoy will be just as good at producing wins as he is 16 foot jumps.

He will have to prove it to those outside the program.

"A number of people will expect us to drop off significantly but in our locker room, the expectation is to uphold the standard all the time," said Tomlin.
