Columbus North Powers Past East

Indiana commit Jake Reed was one of the top recruits on the field, but it was a less heralded senior, running back Kobi Cook, who lead the Bulldogs to victory.

Cook rushed for 342 yards and four touchdowns, as what was a tight game, ended up a three score victory for north.

The difference was an offensive line which opened up holes for their shifty back, and wore down the Olympians as the game went on.

"I give all my thanks to them," Cook said after the game.

Reed, who played with a large cast on his wrist, also was key in the blocking effort, and totaled a sack and two tackles for loss on defense. Yet, his focus was also on the offensive line after the game.

"Those are big guys, but they're athletic too," he explained. "We have some athletes up there."
