In the early years of college football, the University of Michigan once had a team that averaged a point a minute. Through the first half of this high school season, the Byron Eagles are putting up a point a minute.
Byron opened the season with 205 points scored in the first four games. The Eagles are putting those points on the board thanks to a devastating one-two punch of quarterback A.J. Morley and running back Dustin Blom.
Through the first four games of the season, Morley passed for 975 yards and accounted for 19 touchdowns passing and running. He threw for over 200 yards in three of Byron’s first four games, with a top effort of 301 yards and five touchdown passes in a 53-20 win against Webberville. In that game, the Eagle offense amassed 628 total yards.
Morley has thrown to a variety of targets:  Gavin Shepard caught 10 passes against Webberville while, Kyle Brugger caught seven passes for 93 yards and two scores against Bentley.
Blom is leading the assault on the ground, rushing for 237 yards and three touchdowns in the game against Webberville. Jordan Coffey hauled in nine receptions for 127 yards in Byron’s 57-38 win against Hamady in the season opener.
