I’ve seen somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 high school football games since joining The Post in 2009. There have been some great ones. I can’t remember one quite like the one that happened on Thursday, when Atlantic pulled off a 28-12 upset of No. 2 Dwyer. [More]

Video: Palm Beach Gardens off to a running start, more thoughts from 54-14 win over Jupiter

Unlike others whose games went down to the wire, Palm Beach Gardens wrapped up its Friday night win over Jupiter with plenty of time to spare. As such, last night’s game story had everything fairly well laid-out: Gardens posted 305 yards on the ground in a 54-14 no-doubter, with Roshard Burney and Alex Clark accounting for 241 yards and 4 scores.

Burney and Clark get plenty of shine in the game story and the above video (and will be the subject of a story in Tuesday’s Post), so we’ll just touch on them here. They attacked Jupiter like they’ve hit every other team in Gardens’ first four games: with speed, power and great blocking for each other. Their line, which will a big part of Tuesday’s story, was outstanding, locking onto Warriors defenders like magnets and driving them off the ball. Pure run-game excellence from the Gators, who lead the county in rushing yards by a wide margin (full stats here).
