We are three weeks into the 2015 high school football season. Here are some briefs statistics headed into this week of which you ought to be aware:



200+ club: These players are averaging more than 200 yards rushing this season: Quinton Baker, Ashland Blazer (244); Luke Woods, Whitley County (233); Brody Johnson, East Ridge (232); Myles Hurst, Jackson County (217), Dillon Powell, Simon Kenton (214).



If Baker maintains his pace, he will become the state’s second all-time leading rusher by average. J.J. Jude (Johnson Central) holds the top mark at 255.1 in the 2011 season.



502: That’s how many receiving yards Deondre Tate has accumulated at Berea through three games this season. The senior is the only player to reach the 500-yard mark so far this year.



310: Bullitt Central receiver Chase Craddock had seven grabs for that many yards in the Cougars’ 41-18 win at Southern last Friday. That mark is the third most in a single game in state history.



15-0: Trinity Coach Bob Beatty’s career record against teams from Lexington after the Shamrocks’ beatdown of Lafayette last Friday.
