CC 2010 Season Stat Review
During week 3, Andrew Freeman became only the third CC player ever to have touchdown
runs of 60 yards or more in back to back games.  The other two to accomplish
the feat are Rodney Robertson in 2007 (Ballard Memorial, Union County) and Ronnie
Moss who actually accomplished the feat for three straight games (Webster County, 
Reidland, Hancock County).

The 29 points scored in the second quarter of the McLean County game were the 
most points scored in a second quarter by the Rockets before 2002.

CC is averaging 7.0 penalties per game which is the highest average per game since
2002 when CC averaged 7.6 penalties per game.

The 4 interceptions thrown last week were the most by a quarterback since J.D. Gray threw
four in the 0-63 loss to Massac County to open the 2007 season.  As a team the Rockets
had five total interceptions thrown in the Massac County (IL) game.

CC is averaging 332.6 total yards per game which is the most since 2005 when that
team averaged 352.1 total yards per game.

This is the first season since 2006 CC has not had a running back with at 
least 150 yards in a single game during the first 5 games of the season.

CC has not had a receiver have 100 yards receiving in a single game since 2006 in the opening 
round of the playoffs when J.D. Gray caught 2 passes for 101 yards.  The two passes were 40
and 61 yards of which both were touchdowns.  The streak is currently at 43 games.
