What are we to make of the MVP TITANS - Up to No. 3 in 11B


By Rich Winter

One of the more eye-popping results from Week 0 was that of Brent Olson's MVP Titans. After giving up an opening-game score to Dylan Gabriel of Stanley County, the TITANS ripped off 40-straight points for a 40-7 win. 

Stanley County has some serious speed in Gabriel, and J.D. Carter, a big-line and a talented senior QB in Riley Hannum....and the Titans put it to them pretty good.


Jesse Hastings: 18-106 - TD

Weston Tobin: 99 yards, two TD's (Including this 63-yard SCORCHER)

Lotta folks getting involved as evidenced by the Scoring Summary:
