    The Streak is Over!!!!

    Franklin doesn’t have a title.

    Ravenwood at Whitehaven

    If history serves me right last time Oakland played Whitehaven the Patriots went full wing-t until late in the game when they fell behind and panicked. Did not look anywhere close to the same team execution-wise while running their famous “other stuff besides the wing-t.”

    While I believe the hit indeed was helmet to helmet, the rule that an ejection also translates into an automatic one game suspension is archaic. Even if you do something that warrants an ejection, I don’t understand why sitting out the rest of said game (the definition of an ejection) isn’t enough in the eyes of the rules.

    What he meant is that what WH is doing this half is unstoppable schematically. Saulsberry can coach, but even if Ravenwood’s coach was Nick Saban, there’s nothing he could be doing do shut down WH at the line of scrimmage.

    Unfortunately for Ravenwood, this is true tonight.

    30-24 WH. Tigers just out-athleting Ravenwood. Raptors have good coaches but no adjustment can change what’s going on. Hope some sort of spark changes this game.

    Haven now within two. Gotta be honest even when Ravenwood was scoring and taking a big lead I felt it was more to do with good situational football (big plays, turnovers, field position) than anything else. WH has really controled line of scrimmage the whole time, especially when they are on offense. Hope to hold on here.

    I think the penalty yards were given from the previous spot, making 2&25ish to 2&15.

    It looked like helmet to helmet from my angle. Whitehaven fans not happy, neither would I be if that would be called against my team. Oh well. We took the yards and scored the next play. Haven is good at the line of scrimmage so I’ll take any points. Game far from over.

    Little rain today, but a little rain never killed nobody. Ravenwood fans were everywhere in the Wolfchase Mall. On our way to the Haven now, looking forward to a good game. I’ll take the Raptors by a score but whatever happens, we thank Whitehaven for having us at the annual-ish Black Friday showdown.

    Ravenwood in 2015 was basically a wing-t out of a shotgun. That team was fortunate enough to beat Whitehaven (Probably the best Whitehaven team in the last few years on paper) largely because of special teams. After a WH player made a spectacular run after the catch to go up 13-3 right before the half, the ensuing return TD kept the Raptors in the game and then the 55 yd fg tied it. Completely changed the game. So yes, special teams may make the difference. RHS kicker/punter Luke Akers is the son of former Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers and has been great, so if special teams decide the game, I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Somewhat but I’ve seen it happen vice versa once or twice

    He’s somewhere between I think

    Couldn't make it up for that one. But yeah, losing to anyone 21-0 is bad, albeit against a very good team, especially after beating them last year. The schedule won't get any easier next year as Blackman and Pulaski Acadamy are on tap.

    Very good up front on both sides, including OT Gabe Sleenhoff who is getting interest from low D1 schools/ivies. On defense, LB Graham Barton is looking at offers from similar schools. Smaller, borderline undersized skill players but make up in speed what they lack in size. Look at the connection between QB Bryan Garcia and WRs Anthony Holmes, Andrew Mason and Evan Coleman along with RBs Tony Rice, William Baine and Jordan Smith. Tactically Ravenwood runs a 3/4-4/3 hybrid on defense and a spread on offense, but the spread is an unorthodox one, think Ravenwood under Hester and/or Auburn University under Malzahn. Maybe with more shifts and misdirection. I know Whitehaven is usually full of large athletes, so we'll see how the Raptors match up.
