    Now, if I had a choice I'd take size and speed (wouldn't we all) but I will give up some size and "possible" strength for overall team speed...

    Catholic doesn't have any speed. They have no size. Their backs are slow. Defense is not physical. QB does not make good decisions. Their receivers rarely catch the ball.

    So I guess the game will be boring.

    WOW, and they still managed to go 13-1, and are playing in the State Championship game. They have to have the best coach in the nation. Hopefully UK will go after him once Brooks is gone.

    The way this reads, Russell has more D-1 players than FC. Congrats Russell on having the overall team speed award!

    Thanks, because the way it sounded was that this may be the greatest running team the world has ever known.
