Links for Nov. 12 Largo Times: Beyond the Gridiron




Every week during the regular season, Beyond the Gridiron took a look at the Largo High School football program from different perspectives. This week, for the final chapter, we talk to the seniors about what they've learned during the year.

The backup quarterback has one of the toughest jobs on a football team. He practices all week with the expectation that he will get limited, if any, time on the field during the game. He spends the majority of Friday nights just beyond the gridiron, watching from the sideline as the starting quarterback takes most of the snaps. But it is a role that Largo High's Russell Hyde, a junior, takes seriously, as you can see in our video report.
