Football By the Numbers for Week 6

This past weekend’s high school football action extended into Monday thanks to the torrential rain on Thursday and Friday. Most games were made up Saturday, but one – St. Paul’s 28-21 win over Archbishop Curley -- came on Monday. As teams get down to the nitty gritty of their final runs toward the playoffs, plenty of big numbers continue to emerge.
