Lux throws two TDs in Missouri Baptist loss

Missouri Baptist quarterback John Lux threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-37 loss Saturday to St. Ambrose.

By JEFF BROWN - jbrown@shelbynews.com

John Lux threw two touchdowns but it was not enough to lead Missouri Baptist to a home-opening win Saturday in St. Louis.

The Shelbyville graduate completed 26 of 48 passing attempts for 262 yards and two touchdowns but St. Ambrose rallied for a 45-37 win to drop the Spartans to 0-2 this season.

Lux connected with Isaiah King for a 39-yard scoring strike in the first quarter to push Missouri Baptist’s lead to 16-7.

He delivered a 3-yard scoring strike to Darian Pollion with 2:12 left in the fourth quarter to pull the Spartans back to within eight — but that concluded the scoring in the game. 

Here is a look at other Shelby County graduates competing at the collegiate level:

Makenzie Logan
