(MaxPreps top 40 ranked by total points to date; naturally, there are teams ranked between 41 and 93 with more points than some of these).

II.

Coach Miller says to take it game by game; there’s a bit of a dissonance between throwing up 39 points per game and saying a cliche like we are playing the games one at a time. He’s holding his cards close to his chest. As I’ve watched more action — parts of three games, I see more nuance in the story. Stay tuned.

A Gunn player named Tuuta Fisiiahi took this shot, for me

Hi Mark,
I would add that the line has been improving every week, and was dominant in the blow out against Yerba Buena. I would also highlight Kevin Green’s break out performance (5 rushing touchdowns and 1 pick six).
Looking forward to seeing the article,
Ken Erlan
