Is football becoming a non-contact sport or something?
Both Davidson Day (Davidson, N.C.) and Harrells Christian Academy (Harrells) coaches said they expected a high-scoring football game Friday night. But 184 points? A national-record 837 passing yards from one player? A probable national mark of 1,641 total yards?
"It was Play Station stuff," Davidson Day coach Chad Grier said Saturday morning.
Yes, the two teams alone combined for more points than four NBA games on Friday night. It wasn't the highest scoring game in history — according to the NFHS record book, eight teams alone have scored more than 184 in a single game (all before 1930 however) — but the four-hour contest definitely kept score keepers scrambling and left stat keepers exhausted.
Quaterback Will Grier, also the coaches son, was the QB behind the magic. A Coach/QB team so good you'd think they lived together or something.
As if Grier's stats weren't impressive enough, the losing side featured running back Russell Washington who ran for a casual 438 yards on 45 carries.
This was the semifinal game for North Carolina's NCISAA Division 2 state title. Grier will have the chance to break 1,000 yards passing this Friday against the top-seeded Christ School from Arden, North Carolina. Be sure to read the full story here.
