HS Football Notebook: Running QB helps Mount Carmel end slide

(Continued)

Two kick returns: 94 yards. After that, zilch.

Southern scored again (the Tigers would score on their first six possessions) to go up 21-14, and Rarig's next kickoff bounced into the end zone and the rest of them were booted away from Batts.

In addition, the Tigers virtually took Batts out of the running game, bringing safeties up with the linebackers to make sure they got enough hats on the elusive freshman.

Batts had 41 yards on his first nine carries and just five rushes for four yards the rest of the way.

GOOD START: Although his final numbers against the tough Southern defense were not impressive, sophomore quarterback Isaiah Rapp showed lots of poise in his first career start. Although under a lot of pressure from the Tigers, Rapp almost always got the pass away, and got sacked only twice, both in the second half. He was the victim of a few drops, but he had four completions for double-digit yards (16, 10, 10, 26) and he spread the ball around to five different receivers.

Rapp got the start in place of senior Tyler Krebs, who is also the starting safety and punter. Selinsgrove coach Dave Hess said earlier in the week the switch was made to get fewer two-way starters on the field.

WORKING HARD, ENJOYING IT MORE: Southern Columbia junior fullback Adam Feudale was a real thorn in the side of the Selinsgrove defense Friday night. He continually broke free of tackles when it seemed like he was stopped, using his leg strength and quickness, as well as his patience to follow his blockers.

"I'm waiting for the blocks, but if someone hits me in the back, I'm going to do whatever I can to off of it and keep running," he said.

Feudale admitted it is those longer runs when he breaks free of tackles are the most satisfying. "Those runs mean more because you have to really work for it. It makes you feel good when you get it."
