Pennsylvania high school football teams end game with 107-90 score

The teams combined for 1,827 yards of total offense.

DUBOIS, Pa. (AP) — Journey Brown ran for 722 yards and 10 touchdowns and Meadville outscored DuBois 107-90 in a high school football game Friday night.

Brown broke the Pennsylvania yardage record and fell short of the national high school record of 754 yards set by John Giannantonio for Netcong, New Jersey, in a 1950 game against Mountain Lakes.

“That’s pretty cool,” Brown told The Meadville Tribune. “But that’s because of the big uglies up front. First off, I love my line, point-blank, period. Without that line, without the other backs, there’s no way I’m able to do what I did. It’s because of them.”

The junior had 30 carries.

“I’m tired,” Brown told the newspaper. “I’m real tired. But it doesn’t matter. I came to play for the team, not myself.”

Last week in a 28-7 victory over Fairview in a game called at halftime because of lightning, Brown had 151 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.

DuBois sophomore Matt Miller passed for a Pennsylvania-record 741 yards and had 10 touchdown passes in his first start. He completed 29 of 50 passes.

The teams combined for 1,827 yards of total offense.

“I’ll tell you what, the fans that paid their $5 to come see this game certainly got their money’s worth,” Meadville coach Ray Collins told the Tribune. “What you had was two very good offenses teeing up on each other. But neither team brought their defense.”
