Wow didn’t realize N Paulding’s QB did that well. I remembered a few spots of bad coverage by the corners, but not that many.

North Pauldings QB is very over rated, for every TD he throws he has 10 horrible decisions that totally ruin his teams chances to win. In a game as a sophomore he had 7 interceptions and 4 went back for TDs, Wow!! The first thing that a QB learns is: If everyone is covered, throw the ball away!! In his 4 years of playing for NP he has never thrown the ball away to avoid a loss, or a pick for a TD!! I read in the paper that NP was up on Kell 23 to 20 at half time and ended up losing 55 to 30. I didn’t watch the game but I would be willing to bet that the QB accounted for several turnovers in the second half which ruined any chance of a win. I will take a QB that throws for, 200 yards, 2 TDs, “NO” turnovers and a WIN any day. If a running back rushes for 500 yards and 6 TDs but has 5 fumbles and their team loses, that’s not good! Great stats are not everything, ball security and wins are much more important. When the star QB or the star running has several costly turnovers every game it causes the team as a whole to lose hope!
