One of the more amazing offensive stories in Carolinas high school football so far this season has come from Alexander Central High.

The Cougars have allowed an average of nearly 30 points a game but have won all their games by 10 or more points. That’s because they are averaging an incredible 64 points a game on offense.

The most recent performance was Friday’s 82-42 victory over Ashe County. That came a week after a 75-32 decision over Bandys.

The Cougars are doing most of their damage on the ground. They are averaging 510 yards of rushing a game, led by Bryson Godfrey, who has carried 42 times for 794 yards. That’s an average of nearly 19 yards a carry.

Teammate Devon Weiss has rushed for 11 touchdowns, while Godfrey has six.

Alexander Central’s toughest test so far this season might be coming Friday night, when it visits 3-1 South Iredell in a North Piedmont 3A-4A Conference opener. But an even bigger match looms on Oct. 14, when the Cougars will entering Lake Norman, which is currently undefeated.

▪ Maiden quarterback Caleb Farley probably had the biggest statistical game in the region last Friday. He rushed 15 times for 322 yards and six touchdowns, and he threw for 174 yards and two more scores.

Maiden beaten South Caldwell 67-28.

▪ This is the week when a number of conferences, including the 4A leagues in the Charlotte area, begin conference play.
