Trash? Militello has the state record for most consecutive completions and went toe-to-toe with Webb City. Not exactly trash.

If 1st in stl metro area in TDs, 2nd in passing yardage and a 70% completion rate is trash, what does that make the 100 or so other QBs in stl? MICDS up by over 35 with a running clock 2 posssessions into the 3rd qtr against JBS didn't hurt Militello's chances against Holmes, who turned in an outstanding year for the Bombers. Zeke and Nathan Adams were nice weapons, too.

This is silly. As the father of #13 for Burroughs I probably paid closer attention to these QB stats than just about anyone. Although Davey had a storybook season in his first year ever playing quarterback, Thomas Militello had a season for the record books, is a great kid and fully deserves every accolade he has received! Dartmouth is very lucky to have him on their team and on their campus next fall. The community was very lucky to have two outstanding teams playing in the Show Me Bowl on the same weekend. Who is John Galt? (Oh, now I get the literary reference – very clever…)

Hats off to Jim Holmes. I bet you learned one big lesson. You and others cannot control some minority voices even from your own camp.

"Jim Holmes" aka James Baer. Nice try.
