Seward quarterback Joseph Krause is having a season to remember.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior has passed for 2,489 yards and 30 touchdowns. He has also rushed for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Krause has a near-perfect quarterback rating of 137.7.
The lone interception he's thrown didn't come until the seventh week of the season.

"I have good receivers and they make up for some of my mistakes," Krause said, adding he didn't step into the throw that resulted in a pick.
Seward is off to its best start (6-2) since 2014 when the Bluejays finished 8-3 and lost in the quarterfinals to Omaha Skutt. The Bluejays will look to win their seventh game of the season Friday against Beatrice (1-7).
"Everyone on the team has stepped up," Krause said. "Our line has stepped up giving us run lanes, and our defense has done a really good job of holding up. Everyone is there for each other and not for individual success. It is a different feeling this year."
Krause has two scholarship offers from NAIA schools Concordia University in Nebraska and Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Division II schools Northwest Missouri State, Sioux Falls and Washburn have been in contact with him. He has taken two game-day visits this fall to Drake and Kansas State. He'll attend Nebraska's game against Minnesota on Saturday.
Krause has always played quarterback and is being recruited as a signal-caller, although he'd consider a change in position.
"I've never really thought about playing a different position," Krause said. "I'd be open to it. I've always wanted to hit somebody on defense."
Krause isn't planning to make a college decision soon.
"I don't feel too rushed to make a decision. I will wait it out," Krause said. "A lot of schools are telling me they are still evaluating quarterbacks, so that is reassuring. I am taking the process day by day and it seems like more schools are interested every day."
