Quote from: New Tradition on November 14, 2022, 10:32:11 AMCongrats, Foresters, on an outstanding season. Looking forward to Saturday. I'll admit that I'm pretty ignorant as to LF and what type of football they play. What are the keys to their success? Any potential weaknesses?As for NCC--they're primarily a rushing team. They have 2 Sr. RB's who look and run like bruisers, but are also quick and can break a long one if they make it into the second level. This has happened pretty frequently due to the dominance of the offensive line. The soph QB is actually the fastest player on the team and can also hurt you with his feet. You'll see several designed runs for him, as well. They don't throw the ball a ton, but when they do, they're very efficient. The WR core has been decimated by injury, but still healthy is the #1 receiver, DeAngelo Hardy, who is quite the specimen--speed, intelligence, range. It hasn't happened yet this season, but if LF can shut down the Cardinals ground game, they'll have a shot.Defensively, they're even more impressive than the offense, somehow. They are extremely stingy with the football and will force turnovers. They haven't given up a touchdown since the 4th game of the season vs. Wheaton. This streak includes 4 straight shutouts--a school record. When teams have had success moving the football against the Cardinals, it has been off tackle runs and quick passes into the flats. Interested to hear your thoughts and congrats again!
