Lessons from watching Totino-Grace and Hopkins on Friday:

• The No 1-rated Eagles are Example A of the revolutionary wrap-up style intended to keep the head out of tackling.

• Second-and-9 remains a running down for Totino with swift Gayflor Flomo, relentless Brady Bertram and others.

• Hopkins has gifted players and lost 41-0, more evidence the metro athletes still committed to football are more talented than ever.
