Broadway vs. Fort Defiance Football

Fort Defiance's Trey Miller gets caught in between Broadway's Hunter Deavers and Blaine Bieber.

Turner Ashby unveiled a new-found passing attack while Broadway stuck to its roots in a physical rushing attack that couldn't be slowed down most of the night.

Week 7 of high school football was one of the most entertaining of the year.

After seven weeks of action, here's some of the most intriguing statistics:

17 — The touchdown total for Buffalo Gap's three-headed rushing attack of Bryce Hildebrand (7), Jeffery Hildebrand (4) and Dylan Alphin (6).

13 — Riverheads running back Cayden Cook-Cash's touchdown total this season. He has 11 rushing touchdowns and two more through the air.

13 — How many turnovers Fort Defiance has committed through six games. The young Indians are improving, but struggling to take care of the football.

10 — The number of touchdown passes for Rockbridge County quarterback Miller Jay. He leads the Valley District with 1,057 passing yards this season.

9.4 — The yards-per-carry average for Wilson Memorial running back Noah Campbell, who has 95 carries for 897 yards in six games this season.

9 — How many players have received a carry for Strasburg this season.

7.7 — Cameron Showalter's yard-per-carry average in the loss to Turner Ashby. The Broadway running back had 23 carries for 176 yards.

4 — How many second-half touchdown passes Jakari Eaves had in a come-from-behind 34-27 win over Page County in Shenandoah. It was a career-best performance for the East Rockingham sophomore signal-caller.

3 — The number of total touchdowns for Turner Ashby quarterback Cole Hoover. The senior signal-caller had two passing scores and added another on the ground.
