Druley: No option but to move on for Batavia football
Downers Grove North’s option offense helped doom the Batavia football team to a season-ending loss in an IHSA Class 7A first-round playoff game Friday.
Solace could be a long-time coming for the top-seeded Bulldogs, who stormed to their second straight unbeaten regular season and Upstate Eight Conference River Division title. Still, the following sounds like salve from Trojans linebacker Vontae Diggs. He sees the option every day in practice and finds it equally perplexing.
“It’s really hard to stop, because either way, what you do, you can’t be great,” Diggs said. “You stop the dive, and [the quarterback] pitches it. You try to stop the pitch man, he goes to the dive. You can’t be correct on it.”
