Varsity football: By the Numbers for Week 12

The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs have concluded, but this week’s agenda includes the Calvert Hall-Loyola Blakefield Turkey Bowl and the state semifinals. The big stats have dwindled, too, as the competition has gotten tougher, but here are the numbers that stood out in Week 12.
