    Clark had 1100 rushing yards on 99 attempts and 13 TD's as a Sophmore last season. However, against Belfry he had 10 carries for 34 yards. He played every down. He didn't have a great game at the Vipp, and the intimidating Belfry D probably had alot to do with that! He has matured and is stronger and quicker 1200 yards and 38 TD's coming into Friday for the junior.

    I noticed you left off my #1 from the previous post..

    Anyway..I think that this will be a very good game and one for the books. It doesn't get any better than 2 great teams with 2 great coaches. Oh yeah, it does, 2 State Championships (hopefully 3)!

    I'll make my prediction later in the week.

    Pirate Pal, In all fairness I haven't heard of anyone from Belfry this season but Maynard, and I'm sure all you've heard from Russell is Clark.

    Thanks for the info. I knew that Gross touched the ball more than anyone else at Vipperman Stadium and that is probably the reason I hadn't heard or remembered anything about Clark. It's funny what one year will do for a kids talent level.

    That is a fair assessment. Matt is getting his fair share of the media attention this year..and it is deserving by all means. Although Chapman was the leading rusher one game ago and still may be, he isn't getting the write ups like Matt is. It may have something to do with Matt being a Sr., while Chapman and May are a junior and soph, respectively.

    Absolutely, And there are some great football players all over the state that wouldn't have seen the field with the RB's that Belfry had last season. Maynard would have been a stud at alot of other schools, but at Belfry he was hidden behind those guys. And I sure he is glad he was every time he looks at his hand!!!

    I can honestly say that I was quite worried at the end of last year about replacing or at least trying to replace the triple threat that we had in the backfield. I have to give credit to Maynard/Chapman/May for stepping up and stepping up big this year. It would have been easy for them to not be patient and go to another school to play, but their patience and hardwork has paid off tremendously for not only them but the entire Belfry team.

    Just as I'm sure that your backs have waited their turn and now want to try and reap the rewards from it.

    This game will be full of hungry young men wanting the gold. I'm just glad to be able to be a very tiny part of it as a fan.

    Well said! I agree. Josh Gross was special. He is Russell's All-Time All-Everything. But he did a great job helping lead these current kids to give them a taste of success and what it takes to play for championships. It seems as though kids from both schools have really stepped it up. And I'm glad we start this years game at 0-0 instead of where we left off last year at 39-17.

    I just hope it ends exactly the same way it did last year.
