The 2013 season was not a banner year for Bay County high school football teams. The converse was true, however, judging solely by offensive production.

Not only did Mosley surpass 39 points in four of its 10 games, it reached 54 and 55.

Rutherford won only twice, but that was difficult to deduce from the fact the Rams six times exceeded 30 points in 10 games and also cracked the 50-point barrier.

So did Arnold and Bozeman exceed 50, although they combined to win just six games. Newcomer North Bay Haven put up as many as 48 and 36 points in separate games.

Only Bay, which produced a 6-5 record, did so mostly with a more time-honored formula based on defense. The Tornadoes scored 192 points in 11 games, which would have been lowest of the six county schools had it not added the Emerald Coast Classic bowl game to extend its season.

And those eye-popping numbers don’t even scratch the surface when individual excellence is scrutinized.

Bay County produced four 1,000-yard rushers in 2013 led by Ryan Rogers of Mosley who carried 168 times for 1,452 yards and also scored 15 touchdowns to lead the county in that regard.
