ADDING UP THE MILES

Clayton Valley running back Miles Harrison carried the workload on the ground to give the Ugly Eagles (14-0) another NCS Division II Championship in a three-year span. Harrison displayed his home run ability, rushing for three touchdowns (96, 59, 49) against Concord (12-2). Running behind an athletic offensive line, Harrison is the perfect fit in Tim Murphy’s double wing offense, finishing with 22 carries for 281 yards.

THE MOST INTERESTING COACH IN NORCAL

Maybe. Who knows? Tim Murphy looks like he can suit up in pads right now and has youthful energy similar to his players. His football philosophy is outside of the box and his team plays extremely hard for him. Murphy’s 4-4 defense is swarming to the ball and his rushing offense is ranked No. 1 in California. Since taking over Clayton Valley in 2012, Murphy is 37-4 overall with two NCS titles on his resume. After this win against the Minutemen, Murphy is 5-0 against Concord. Even more importantly, his team remains undefeated.

UGLIES DEFENSE GETS UGLIER… IN A GOOD WAY

In four playoff games, Clayton Valley’s defense has given up an average of just 8.75 points per game. Teams just cannot score on the Uglies as they have allowed a total of only 178 points this season. Concord QB Mitch Daniels came into this game with 54 touchdown passes to only 7 interceptions. CV forced the senior signal-caller to throw three interceptions and the Minutemen turned the ball over seven times total. Concord finished 2-of-7 on fourth down attempts.
