Football By The Numbers for Week 1

Football is back and so is By The Numbers, our statistical look at what's happening in high school football around the Baltimore area. The opening weekend for most teams included a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown, the end to a long losing streak and a milestone for the state's winningest coach (even if he isn't local).
