In 6A it’s Center Grove, Brownsburg, Merrillville and Elkhart that are starting to distance themselves from the pack. We find out if North Central can keep their win streak alive against Center Grove on Friday. If so, the Panthers join this club. Lafayette Jefferson doesn’t have a statement win under their belt yet, but the team is a dangerous one and our sleeper on the North side of the bracket. Carroll may have something to say about this in the end as well.
Would you believe that two running backs accounted for 13 touchdowns and 893 yards rushing on Friday night? Well it happened. Boonville senior Devin Mockobee ran up 419 yards and four scores while Lafayette Jefferson running back Thomas Hogan’s 9 touchdowns was just one shy of the state record. He ran wild for 474 yards on the night.
All good things must come to an end. A remarkable 65 straight regular season wins by New Palestine ended on Friday night at the hands of Class 4a top ranked Mount Vernon. Ironically, the last time the New Pal Dragons lost a regular season game, it was the Marauders that dealt the loss in 2012.
