I know these linebackers are studs but isn't 144 yards for a running back really good in one game? Over 6 yards per carry?

144 yds at over 6 ypc is fantastic. I suppose they are tryingto compare it to his previous games where he averaged over 200 ypg and over 13 ypc. So in that light I guess they did "hold him" to those totals. That said no one is going to keep up the averages that kid was having and 144 yds and 6 ypc is still pretty much running all over them.

If you take it for face value, the runner from Granger had pretty good stats for YPC, and total yards, but look a little deeper in to the story to get the whole story. Granger football was averaging over 44 pts per game over the previous 4 games, this game only 7 pts, and off a turnover on a very short field (6 yds) to their only pts of the game. Holding this running back, who at the time was leading the state with rushing of nealry 1100 yds, JD defense and these two young men did hold them in check. JD is known for its defense and holding very good runners to very low yrds pergame. These two along with the rest of their team did hold this Granger offense, and Granger could not stop JD's offense... They did their job, and your critisism of not stopping Granger is unwarrented

The game was a blowout at 49-7, and the runningback for Granger stayed in the game while getting hurt with three mins left. The running back was held fdown for three quarters, and then JD started to sub playeser in. Granger should have substituted players in instead of running up the yards for the tailback. The tailback from Granger is a very good tailback for 5A. I predict that if he gets to play this friday, he will once again have over 200 yards, and Granger will have a win.

Its easy to get 144yds,when you dont pass the ball.Doesn't matter how many yards Grangers RB had, he could of had 400 yards,but all those yards mean nothing if he is held out of the ENDZONE,granted it will look good on individual stats.The only TD he had was a 2yd run,after JD mishandled a punt on Grangers 6yd line. JD's stud LB's did what needed to be done to win ,and that was to keep Grangers RB from scoring, and win the game..Not only did they win,but the Crushed them. good job Dakota and kalei, keep our JD Eagles Focus....AC2

JD FAN. 212
