Shelby has also only given up just 10 rushing and 9 passing TDs through 14 games.

Mount Pleasant averages 284.9 rushing yards per game and has 54 rushing TDs on the season.
I'd take our defense....
You better try and stop Reece, 3000+ yards rushing this year is awesome, and that was against some pretty good competition.
He must be a good one and will be a load for the Lions.How did Mt.Pleasant do against the big back for Owen?
147 I think?

Guys, here is an article from the Concord-Kannapolis Independent Tribune. It gives information about the game including statistics. It also has an audio of some or all of the game. It's a little hard to negotiate but if you want to advance it, put the pointer where the gauge typically is, drag the advance button and it will work. See the link.

Man, do they run any other kind of play besides just giving him the ball? 36 carries, 42 carries, 39, 33, 44, 38, 35.

Last time we played Mount Pleasant in the Western Finals they had a featured back that had ran all over everybody....we shut him down.....this year's defense is better than 2007's defense.

Those are ridiculous numbers could be a big challenge for our D we have allowed teams to run up the middle from time to time

2007 reminded me of Corey Brooks who was pound for pound the best defensive player ever at Shelby High.Do you remember how many sacks he had?

I remember a scrimmage early in season, Brooks came off the edge, the Qb was running the option, he tackled the QB, who pitched it , he got up and still tackled the ball carrier behind the line... Never had seen that..He was lightning fast.. Dominated coming off the edge..

Only one team had a game plan to stop him that season, and it was Reidsville in the title game....

I have to say, this Mount Pleasant team is a hard team to figure out. They have had two impressive wins in the playoffs, but that one point win over East Rutherford is puzzling. Shelby beat East 64-10. I realize East finished the season with wins over RS and Chase...but I just can't fathom how MP barely beat East...and then dominated both N. Rowan and Owen. Maybe MP just had an off night.

As for the stats, MP is clearly a team that Shelby should not overlook. They obviously have a strong rushing attack and as bralpa stated, Reece has impressive stats. 12 TDs in three playoff games is something anyone should have immense respect for. I know Shelby's defense is playing well but no one from Shelby should underestimate this Mount Pleasant team.

The main thing I want to see this Friday night from Shelby is them limiting the penalties. Too many penalties the past two games.

Should be a good one. GO LIONS!

The Mt Pleasant people are looking at the Shelby schedule and asking how in the world did they lose to South Point.Everybody has a bad night and your right we better not over look this team.

Lion (unless you're joking) you have got to be the most pessimistic Shelby poster ever. We don't eat our own but you are such a Debbie Downer when it comes to our boys. Let's lift them UP! ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

The better statement is the Mount Pleasant people are looking at the Shelby schedule and saying to themselves, "Damn, Shelby's only two losses are to two 3A teams that are playing in the Western 3A final against each other for a trip to the State Championship and they only lost to those two teams by a combined 13 points."

Looking at those stats Bralpa posted was impressive. Huskey will probably pass Brooks from 2007 in TFL and only be a few back in sacks by the time its all over. Young man has had a great season. Will probably have the same problem Brooks had as far as playing in college: too small for his position. Still, it's been fun watching him play.

Looking forward to seeing the 3,000 yard rusher Friday night. Wow! That's a bunch of yards. We've had some fantastic running backs in my lifetime, but I only remember one getting barely over 2,000. Should be a big test for those boys in the middle along with Addison and Hollifield.

The 3A west is very weak this year and that is the only reason SP is in the finals.We should have beat SP by 3 tds but we didn't and that is why you play the game.I have seen way more Shelby games then you have and I never get to high or to low.In 1977 after going undefeated I thought we would kill Newton Conover but we lost,in 95 I thought we had the best team in the state but lost to a girl kicker,in 97 I thought we would kill Bandys but barely won and lost to Clinton the next week.And then there is Madison and West Stokes.This is why you play the game and respect your opponent.

TGT - Of the names on that list that I am aware of:

Tanyi played great at App State for 3 years and then when and was fantastic at Colorado State for one year. He got some try outs in the NFL but couldn't hold on.

Brooks - Last I heard he played at a Jr. College out west.

Murray - Played at WCU. Ended up getting switched to O-line, and started there.

Wray is the starting nose tackle for Duke right now.

There may be others that can help some more.

Quick hijack:

Shelby is one of the only programs I have been able to pull for even when they beat my team. Our programs have some things in common that I value. Shelby has a winning tradition built over many years of sustained success. Hope y'all win by 40 this week and next. From one Lincolnton fan, GO LIONS!

One thing that concerns me about this game is that even though Mount Pleasant is pretty much one dimensional, teams have still not been able to stop them. That line they have is huge. As for them being to not as athletic it is hard to get passed Monroe only scoring 7 on them?

The warmer temps should help our WR's Friday.

"We' have been playing for and watching games of Shelby since 1917. We were on the 1977 team and on the 1997 State Runner-up team that you mentioned. We were also on the 1916 and 1917 teams along with '42 and '43. And on the 1970, 1972, and 1998 Championship teams. And on the 1969 and 2004 State Runner-up teams. And significant starters and contributors in all cases. We have been in the band and we have been captains of the cheerleaders. We think we got ya on the Shelby games seen count.

We respect MP. We just feel positive reinforcement builds confidence in the guys. No one gets to the fourth round without being a very good football team. The players and the coaches know they have to play well.

Never. What is accurate is that MP played 3A for four years with 2A ADM numbers because of a then spineless school board decision not to follow through on a redirecting plan. Never came close to 3A/3AA numbers.

Mount Pleasant has about 800 students(2A enrollment) and has never had 3A/AA enrollment. What you may be hearing is that Mt Pleasant was in a 3A conference from 2009 to 2012. They agreed to join an all Cabarrus County, South Piedmont conference and were promised re-redistricting to up the enrollment to 3A. The redistricting didn't happen because of local political pressure so MP went back to 2A last year after competing in 3A for four years..This year MP played 5 games with 2A/AA schools (in conference), 5 games with 3A/AA schools and one game with a 4A school.
