Panthers' Run Game Nets 31-0 Win
RB Derek Warren put on a performance not seen since John Clay went to Madison
The tradition of Racine Park's football team has always been around the running game. Last night, the Panthers got a new member of the legendary pantheon, as RB Derek Warren
rushed 21 times for 192 yards and 2 TDs in a 31-0 rout of Greenfield High in Greenfield. That total included a 69 yard TD run early in the first half to make it a 17-0 game.
The Panthers continued to show off state-championship level defense, shutting out the Hawks and intercepting Greenfield twice.
Less stellar was D-I prospect QB Tim Moungey
, who stuck to the air and struggled with his accuracy, completing just 7 of 20 passes for 125 yards and a TD, the last coming on a 33 yard rainbow to Dwight Everett
. It was a beautiful play, one of the rare instances where Moungey was able to set his feet and deliver the throw. Much of the rest of the game was once again the offensive line doing a poor job of pass blocking, making the game perhaps closer than the final score indicated. All told, the Park senior signal-caller was sacked 4 times.
Moungey Recruiting Update - QB
Big 10 academic powerhouse Northwestern offered a scholarship to play quarterback, while Central Michigan again called to try and lure him to the directional school. Illinois checked in about the Park senior playing QB and, in the biggest news of them all, 5* prestige Big 10 member Iowa called to express interest
. The Hawkeyes are the most prestigious program by far to ask about Moungey.
Moungey Recruiting Update - LOLB
Nothing new to report here, with Northwestern, Central Michigan, and Minnesota all declaring that the Panther can play defense for them if he likes, a scenario that looks less and less likely as the season progresses.
