The Gridiron Blog brings you the scores, stats and stories from Fredericksburg-area high school football.
Thanks for waiting, Irene
(This blog post will seem cooler if you imagine it being reported by a guy in a raincoat, holding an inverted umbrella, standing near crashing waves, and saying “conditions have DEFINITELY deteriorated”.)
Well at least the rain held off for one night so we could get some games in.
Quick thoughts from Friday, with more to come Monday.
That’s a really nice win for Massaponax over Courtland. The Panthers had concerns about their lack of experience, but I think they’ve been allayed for now.
Also a statement overtime win for Chancellor over Riverbend. No one knew what to expect from the Chargers this year. For the first time in forever, they don’t have Dominique Wallace or Micah Cunningham. But the no-stars style actually seems to fit coach Bob Oliver. Nice debut for new Chargers offensive coordinator Don Joy, too. He went to the air a bit more than past Chancellor teams.
Wish we could tell you more about Brooke Point’s 54-21 thrashing of Osbourn. But we were unable to cover that one. I’m planing to have some more on that game here early next week. But for now, chew on this: Quarterback Zach Deutel had more than 300 yards passing–in the first half. Impressive.
Check back here all week for everything you need to know (and some things you don’t) about Fredericksburg-area high school football. And feel free to toss me an email at email@example.com with suggestions, questions, cookie recipes, etc.
I hope you all stayed dry this weekend!
