MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School running back Bobby Ritter wanted to talk about Ashton Bates, Bruce Wright, Lucas Plouffe, Calvin Desforges and Chris Grier on Friday after the No. 1 Tigers had dispatched No. 8 Champlain Valley, 54-6, in a Division I quarterfinal.
Ritter ran for 216 yards on just six carries, including three touchdowns on counter plays of 93, 31 and 29 yards. He pointed out he was virtually untouched on those scoring rambles: Anyone, Ritter said, could have run through the holes he saw.
