Canterbury football coach Steve Dudley is a proud man right now.

And he should be.

With last week’s 33-21 win over Carrollwood Day, the Crusaders improved to 8-1 and will play for the Sunshine State Athletic Conference championship after clinching the South Division title. Canterbury meets Ocala St. John Lutheran for the championship Nov. 14 (Canterbury defeated St. John 54-6 in Week 4).

Courtesy of Dudley, here are some Canterbury tidbits:

-Canterbury has outscored opponents 346-74.

-This is just the Crusaders’ fifth year of football.

-Against CDS, Canterbury amassed 400-plus rushing yards.

-The Crusaders’ explosive ground attack averages 10.14 yards per carry (2,252 yards and 35 TDs on 222 attempts).

-Leading the ground game is an offensive line anchored by 6-foot-3, 295-pound OT Micah Madir, 230-pound FB Jeremy Dolan and TBs James Goodwin (908 yards) and Brent O'Neil (766 yards).

-On defense, LBs Sam Flood and Jake Holsinger, along with DLs John Jackson, DeSean Thomas and Michael Woolfenden are the leaders.
