The days of 3 yard and a cloud of dust are long gone. It is now the norm rather than the exception that there are a lot of high scoring games. A lot of teams are using no huddle offenses and the defenses can’t stay up with them. Also, it is great to see Carver-Columbus ranked 39th in the poll. It is very hard for 2-A teams to be ranked very high.

QB Quenton Rucker played only the second half against MLK and was 20/33 for 290 yards and 3/2 TD/Int. WR Carnell (CJ) Boyd had 10 catches for 166 yards and 2 TD in the loss to MLK. Is there anyway possible that I can get a number emailed to me so that our player stats can be repotted to the newspaper

Kenno Loyal Columbia High School is the most complete running back since Herschel Walker. If you think I’m crazy check him out. In 3 games this kid has 700 yards and 9 TD’s. UGA Let Jamel Lewis go to Tennessee will Loyal be the next great back to leave the peach state.
