Why we love high school football

Benton High School has thrown exactly ZERO passes in its last two games - both wins.

You've got to love that. A team that wants to run. A team that doesn't even pay lip service to being balanced offensively.

They line up and dare you to stop the run.

That is part of the beauty of high school football. Benton makes enough yardage on first and second downs that third down has been a running down. Can't argue with that.

Obviously, Benton will have to throw a pass somewhere late in the season or postseason. But it is rather impressive to play two games in a row without having to put it in the air.
