#Scoby3000: St. Francis likely to be biggest block on the road to #Scoby3000 … 2,251 needed for 3,000 yards …

#Scoby3000

Scoby’s yards to date: 749
History: 142 yards vs. Ayala
287 yards vs. Arcadia
183 yards vs. San Dimas
137 yards vs. South Hills
Needed for 3,000: 2,251
This week’s opponent: St. Francis
Games left: Six regular season + playoffs.

Aram’s take: This is the week. St. Francis is gonna surely focus on stopping Scoby. Big-time, parochial, upper-division teams often find a way to put the clamps on the opponents’ best player. They’re used to it. I remember many years ago when Russell White was at Crespi and running wild, Loyola held him to something like 18 yards. Thank you very much. It can happen. And if it does, #Scoby3000 takes a big, big hit.
