Varsity football: By the numbers for Week 6

Little things mean a lot and the smaller numbers stood out as most of the impressive statistics in Baltimore high school football during Week 6. The area’s stingiest team has allowed just two touchdowns — no extra points or conversions. One player came close to a state interception record, and one overtime game lasted longer than any other this season. At the other end of the scale, the area’s most prolific scoring team is nearing 300 points.

Here’s a look the numbers that jumped out this week.


Punts blocked by Gilman’s Mason Freeman in the Greyhounds’ 35-28 upset win over Calvert Hall on Friday


Interceptions in the final 4:34 — one each by Francis Scott Key’s Nate Imes and Steven Keeney — to seal a 24-21 win over Manchester Valley on Friday


Special teams plays by Howard that sparked the Lions’ 20-6 win at Long Reach on Saturday — a bad snap that Anthony Reid recovered in the end zone and a blocked punt by Robert Agbai that set up a touchdown


Interceptions by St. Frances’ Terrell Smith — one short of the state record — in Friday’s 28-0 win over McDonogh
