In a Friday Night Lights match-up of two Pennsylvania area high schools, Meadville and DuBois – both based in the upper region of the state – went back-and-forth in a shootout, with Meadville pulling out as victor, 107-90.
Meadville running back Journey Brown, who last weekend carried the ball 12 times for 151 yards and two touchdowns against Fairview, set a Pennsylvania rushing record with his performance against DuBois by running the ball over a half-mile in only 30 attempts, while visiting the endzone 10 times.
Brown on who really deserves the credit for his 722-yard game:
“That’s pretty cool. But that’s because of the big uglies up front. First off, I love my line, point-blank, period. Without that line, without the other backs, there’s no way I’m able to do what I did. It’s because of them.”
And Meadville wasn’t the only team that experienced an explosion in offensive production.
DuBois also witnessed success in their quarterback, Matt Miller. The sophomore ‘went ham’ as he completed 29 of his 50 pass attempts for 741 yards and 10 touchdowns, which also set a benchmark in Pennsylvania history.
In total, both offenses extracted over 1,800 yards as fans got an early Halloween treat, according to Meadville head coach Ray Collins:
“I’ll tell you what, the fans that paid their $5 to come see this game certainly got their money’s worth. What you had was two very good offenses teeing up on each other. But neither team brought their defense.”
