Carmel football

 This misconception that grinding the ball on the ground for Carmel would be foreign is a mystery.
 The Padres have had at least one 1,000 yard rusher -- two five years ago -- in each of the last seven seasons.
 Clearly, when you have one of the most powerful and talented tailbacks in the area, you're going to run the ball.
 Before the year is up, Covossay Windham will own the all-time school rushing record.
 Yet, when you possess a quarterback that has not thrown a pick in his last 99 attempts, why wouldn't you air it out?
 Because you are going to dominate a lot of teams when your quarterback is completing 17-of-19, as was the case Friday for Daniel Higman.
 Higman spread the ball around the field, connecting with six different receivers in the Padres route of Christopher.
 He has proven to be calm under pressure, as evident by orchestrating a 99-yard drive in less than two minutes against Scotts Valley in Week 2.
 And Higman gives Carmel another dimension as a runner, as he and Windham each rushed for over 100 yards on Friday.
 Once again the Padres appear to have an offense capable of putting up big numbers. The difference this year is the program appears to have a defense that won't force them to engage in shootouts.
 That could lethal come postseason.
