Has high school's spread offense run its course?

November 27, 2011

Some things I think I think:
Is it possible the spread offense and its numerous variations have run their course at the high school football level?
Sure seemed that way during Wednesday night’s Tolman-Shea game when neither team looked efficient on offense in a 7-0 Tigers victory. Both teams appeared to be mirror images of one another on offense as they operated out of the shotgun on almost every play, blending in elements of the spread and wildcat formations, sending backs into motion on almost every play.

Saving green on Black Friday

November 25, 2011

LINCOLN — There seem to be two types of Black Friday shoppers: the people who come out and wait begrudgingly in line for a specific sale item, and those who view it as one big, exhausting — but-enjoyable — road trip.
Pawtucket residents Pauline Tougas, Rachel Doyon and Jeannine Bourski fall into the latter category. The three women, along with a couple of other family members, headed out to do shopping at the major retail stores along Route 1 in South Attleboro, Mass. at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday and they were just finishing up at 9:30 a.m. on Friday.
