However, a week after throwing for 256 yards on 17-of-30 passing, Scott quarterback Cody Brown completed 8 of 15 for 150 yards on Friday night.
"Cody Brown is a senior leader, he's on the basketball team so he's been in a lot of big games in both sports," Griffith said. "He's worked real hard this offseason on his arm strength and he throws a nice pass. We've got a lot of versatility to work with."
Griffith has also speeded up the tempo of his offense, and that paid dividends on Friday, although Griffith said it was actually detrimental to the team at Herbert Hoover.
"It was on me," Griffith said. "We've used a style of offense over the last decade that is a slow-paced offense. This year we're going with a dynamic, upbeat pace and we didn't adjust our conditioning to compensate for it. We learned last week. Tonight we were able to do a little bit of platooning in the first half, we got some extra guys on the field, and I think it gave us some extra gas in the third quarter and it was huge for us."
Loftus' other touchdown in the first half was from 1 yard out while brother Codie Loftus scored a 17-yard rushing touchdown and Triston Crone added a score from 12 yards out in the second half.
Lincoln County quarterback Grant Bates' 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter ended the scoring.
Crone recorded 75 yards on 11 carries while Michael Belcher hauled in five catches for 92 yards for the Skyhawks (1-1).
Wiley finished with 167 yards on 14 rushes for the Panthers (0-2) and Blake Taylor grinded out 113 yards on 26 carries.
Bates managed just nine yards passing on 1 of 5 throwing and threw two interceptions.
