To date this Mustangs Football Team has done absolutely everything asked of it and more - Here is how we stand in many of the statistical categories - individual and collectively
NOTE: I notice that the overall State Stats have been updated Tuesday morning, so the numbers shown below and the numbers now appearing on the KHSAA site that is linked to above, may not match.
I do not claim to understand RPI. I do know that it is a computer generated number which weighs things such as your success, or lack thereof, that includes the strength of the teams that you are playing, and your overall strength of schedule. If anyone would like to explain it to me further, email me the info and I will be happy to cut and paste it. I do know that the KHSAA often uses RPI to determine pairings in the post-season playoff brackets.
Below you will see the RPI leaders in the state. These are not rankings and this is not a Top Ten poll. We are yet to crack that hallowed group, but it is only a matter of time. Note that Sayre is listed as fourth in RPI and they are the seventh ranked team in the state via the Bluegrass Preps Class 1A Top Ten.
I’m going to say this about Sayre, who I highly respect. Our guys will get on the bus tomorrow after school, drive the hour and a half to Lexington and play Sayre with no trepidation whatsoever. We might get sent home to practice, but we would welcome the challenge.

Our one constant this season has been our defense. They have allowed only one touchdown this season – from the one yard line. For their efforts, using total points scored, we are the NUMBER ONE DEFENSIVE TEAM IN THE STATE, allowing an average of 3 points per game, with our nearest rival at 8.8 points per game allowed. . Our passing defense is 2nd and our rushing defense is 3rd. We are Number One in Fumbles Recovered, 10th in Sacks, and Intercepted Passes at 13th. .Interestingly, we have no players listed in the Top 25 among leading tacklers, which I feel also speaks volumes for our total team’s defensive efforts..
Our Scoring Margin of Victory ranks fifth. We are ranked seventh in Rushing Yards Per Game.
Offensively we are ranked 15th, which I feels also speaks well of our defense.
Individually Jed Martin ranks 12th Rushing, with 510 yards on 85 carries for 102 yards per game. Jacob Leicht is Number 20 with 309 yards gained on 76 carries for 77 yards per game.
Overall Scoring, Jacob Leicht ranks 15th and Jed Martin 29th. Jacob Leicht is 28th among Class 1A passers, which is no secret, since we relied primarily on our ground game through our first four games.
David Govan is 11th in Sacks, averaging 3.5 sacks per game. Sam Willike ranks 10th in Interceptions.
Brossart has four players in the Top 25 in the Forced Fumbles category led by Sophomore Nate Heck in 12th Place, who filled in admirably for Brad Reis, while he was incapacitated. Kaleb Lukes ranks 13th, Austin Schadler 17th, and Evan Orth, 24th.
Our Mustangs will be home Friday night when we welcome Class 1A Indepaendnt opponet Ludlow, on Football Mustangs Alumni Night. Game time is 7pm. The live audio broadcast which serves as the voice-over for the NFHS Video production at 6:40pm.
