Sawyer the Soothsayer

Sawyer the Soothsayer

Eyes were rolling all over the region, starting with these two, and all over the Granite State when Londonderry High coach Tom Sawyer announced he was switching from the already run-crazed wing-T to the even more antiquated, but ground-game friendly, single-wing.

The snickering ceased in Week 1, when senior Alex Theodhosi set out on the most prolific Lancer running campaign of all-time and Londonderry earned a return to the Division 1 playoffs.

Theodhosi, who ran for 584 yards as a junior, nearly gained four times that, becoming the region's second 2,000-yard rusher by finishing with 2,041 yards on 259 carries in 11 games.

Not since 1998-99 when Steve Miller put up back-to-back 1,400-yard seasons has a Lancer finished so high on the regional rushing chart.
