Nashua South respects Keene's defense as football playoff looms
"He's going to get his," Luopa said of the Panthers quarterback. "You know he's going to get some yardage and find some of those talented receivers for a big gain here and there. The game plan defensively is to limit his big gains through the air and contain him on the ground."
From the completion of their 34 0 shutout of Nashua North on opening night, the rest of Division I knew the Blackbirds defense was the real deal as well.
