Devaney's Pick for State's Round 1
Posted Wednesday, November 12, 2008 by Devaney Blog/Lohud
Rye 35, Highland 7: The aggressiveness of this blitz-happy Highland squad was enough to get through Section 9. But that style of play against Rye is basically digging your own grave. Highland has athletes and is very well coached, which is why it’s come up with over two dozen turnovers this season. Rye, though, isn’t going to get overwhelmed or forced into making mistakes. Connor Eck and the Garnets receivers could have big nights against the single coverage.
