Osborne learns some tough lessons

Mounds View, MN
Other than the "1" in the loss column, the number most bugging Mounds View football coach Jim Galvin was 25 -- the number of passes attempted by his run-oriented offense.
Woodbury stifled the Mustangs ground game in a 21-20 Week 1 victory. Their top three running backs combined for just 107 yards on 27 carries. Senior Andy Osborne, a 5-6, 189-pound bull of an inside runner, was held to 63 yards on 13 carries.
Establishing the run was top priority in Week 2 against Stillwater. Though running inside behind new starters at the center and guard positions, Osborne broke through and keyed a 41-10 demolition of the Ponies. He ran 16 times for 108 yards and three touchdowns. Galvin said the Mustangs did not attempt a pass in the second half.
