Howe stats

Howe is the fifth smallest school in Class 3A, Division I, but are fairing well statistically with the large disadvantage.  Howe has scored 125 points and given up 135 in the first five games of the season.  Howe’s 3-2 record is largely due to the impactful running game that has accumulated 1390 yards (278 per game).  With 185 rushing yards tonight, Howe will surpass the entire season of 2017 (1,574).  The Bulldogs also threw their first touchdown pass of the season last week, a 32-yarder (Bryce Krantz to Elijah Campbell).

The Bulldogs have accumulated a total of 1476 yards of offense through five games (295.2 average) and allowed a total of 1607 (321.4 per game).  A year ago, Howe averaged 240.7 yards of offense per game and allowed 340.60 per game.  The run game is the difference so far on each side of the ball where Howe is rushing for 121 more yards per game than a year ago.  The Dog defense is also allowing 18 fewer yards rushing per game by the opponent.  The ball control on offense eliminates drives by opponents that add up to more yardage (and points).

New players on the roster

Howe has brought up Jackson Adkins and Jordan Jones from the junior varsity.
