BY THE NUMBERS

Getting into the end zone is the ultimate goal of every football team, but how they do so can vary. Last season, there were 387 offensive TDs scored by local teams, with 279 of them coming on the ground and 108 through the air. Only one team had more passing TDs than rushing TDs and 72 percent of the total TDs came on the ground.

Through September this season, the number is down slightly with 67 percent of TDs coming via the pass (107 rushing scores, 51 passing scores). Three teams have already thrown more TD passes in 2012 than they did in all of 2011: Peabody (5 this year, 3 last year), North Shore Tech (4 this year, 1 last year) and St. John’s Prep (5 this year, 3 last year).

The Tanners are the only team in the area with more passing TDs than rushing TDs in 2012, which is a big change from last year’s 23-3 rush/pass differential. The most balance team is Hamilton-Wenham, which has six of each, which the most run heavy is Swampscott, which has seven rushing and one passing. Gloucester is at the opposite end of the spectrum with nine touchdowns on the season, all rushing.
