This is first day of the Varsity Kickoff Countdown series on the Varsity blog. We’re counting down the days to the high school football season. It is 50 days until the opening night of football season on Friday, Aug. 29.
Number of the day: 50. That’s the number of touchdowns that recent Northwestern graduate Brandon Reiser scored during his career on his way to 302 career points. It’s also the number of touchdown passes that Cathedral Prep quarterback Damon Terry threw during his senior season in 2012. That’s a District 10 record.
