One overshadowed aspect of the 6-2 Mustang football team has to be the running game.

The three-headed monster of Seniors Justice Ogueri & Nate Bennett, and Sophomore Marquel Phillips have accounted for the majority of yards and points scored this season. So let me give them a little recognition.

On Friday night, with the downpour ensuing and slick field conditions, the trio slid their way to 378 yards rushing and SIX touchdowns in their 48-14 win over Thomas Jefferson.

That’s video game numbers.

And to the guys up front, consisting of Seniors Nick Myers, Jordan Simpson, & Major Walker and Juniors Cash Latta & Francisco Quintero, kudos to doing the dirty work that doesn’t make the highlight reel.

I see you.
