High School football in WV is off and running with two weeks of the regular season already in the books! And, in those first two weeks, we have seen tons of scoring with a lot of teams putting 40 points on the scoreboard…..many teams lighting the scoreboard with 50 points…..several teams lighting the scoreboard up for 60 points and, a few teams have even reached towering heights by putting up more than 70 points! And, as one might expect, with that many points scored, a number of teams have played two games and won two games. The numbers look this way: In Class AAA there are 32 teams and 12 are still undefeated. In Class AA there are 37 teams and 12 are still undefeated. And, in Class A there are 43 teams and 16 are still undefeated! So, total everything up and we have 112 teams in WV playing high school football and so far, 40 are still undefeated or, as we see in the subject line above, 36% still have that goose egg on the right side of the won/loss column!
Looking ahead to week #3, we find some exciting games where some of those undefeated teams will have to work noticeably harder to improve to 3-0!
