Tedbit -- As noted yesterday, the Roman-Roxborough Thanksgiving football rivalry is dead. The Roxborough folks are no doubt breathing a gigantic sigh of relief. Roman dominated the series, 36-9-2, and won the final 26 games by 1003-209 (38.6 to 8.0). Over the 47 meetings, Roman was thumped just once (40-0 in '76) and suffered five of its nine setbacks by no more than seven points. Mike Schumacher. Write down the name. Could win you money in trivia contests. He scored the rivalry's first TD (6-yard run for Roman in 1972), according to an Inky recap. Roman won, 13-6, and Pete Ficiak ran for the winning TD. Distance? Not sure. Recap had 10 yards. Boxscore had 15. Roman's top feats during the streak . . .
 
Most points game: 24, Marcus Kelly, 2011; Jamie Westerfer, 1995.
  Most points total: 32, Joe McCourt, 1998-00.
  Most TD passes game: 4, Chris Johnson, 2005 & 2007.
  Most TD passes total: 10, Chris Johnson, 2005-07.

Tedbit -- In his first year as the offensive coordinator (after three games as the interim OC to finish 2018), SJ Prep product Kevin Stefanski steered the Minnesota Vikings to a 38-point outburst vs. the Eagles. First-year success is not new to Kevin (son of Bonner grad Ed, long-time NBA executive). Kevin had to wait until his senior season, in '99, to become the Prep's QB starter. How'd he do? Earned first team All-Catholic Red Division honors! Did so at DB, as well (and was a first team All-City DB honoree before starring for Penn at DB). Here are stats for his top five Prep games in passing yardage . . .
  208: vs. O'Hara, 13-for-23, 1 TD
  185: vs. Episcopal, 11-for-22, 1 TD
  164: vs. North Catholic, 8-for-11, 3 TDs
  136: vs. North Catholic (playoff), 10-for-14, 2 TDs
  126: vs. Roman, 7-for-15, 0 TDs
  Season: 72-for-146, 1,080 yards, 12 TDs
