Bloomington,IN – Bloomington South seems to be coming into their prime early in the 2022 season. Sitting at #5 in SISN’s latest Southern Indiana Football Top 25 poll, the Panthers have run all over their last two opponents. In an amazing atmosphere across town at Bloomington North the Panthers steamrolled the Cougars to the tune of 45-7 in the SISN Game of the Week. Gavin Adams and the South rushing attack were able to amass 337 total rushing yards on 51 carries, while the Panthers’ defense held North to under 200 yards of total offense.
“I think we’re doing something right, I think we got their attention after Martinsville for sure. Success, winning is momentary. It’s not on a continuum. It’s not just going to happen because we want it to happen. We have to earn it every week and we need to understand that.South Coach Gabe Johnson speaking to The Herald-Times
