Newspaper accounts of the 1991 season read like a triage list at a MASH unit. No fewer than five different players started at tailback during the campaign. The running corps grew so thin that even offensive lineman Taurus Tomlinson was recruited for carries.
Despite the winless record, the ’91 club set a foundation for what would become a very good football team the next season. Players like RB-DB Buster Grayson would gain the experience that would enable him to earn all-city honors the following year. In the season’s best game, a heartbreaking 20-21 loss to Castle, Grayson would run for 81 yard and a TD as well as score another touchdown on a pass reception. He carried that same intensity into the sectional and scored North’s only two touchdowns versus Floyd Central.
QB Ben Kunkel, playing behind a young offensive line, twice managed more than 100 yards passing through the air (107 vs. Mater Dei and 138 vs. Castle). His passing and kicking skills would become a trademark of North’s attack the following season.
Not a single member of the ’91 squad received post-season honors, but the table was set for this young team to mature into the powerhouse ’92 club that would bring North its first post-season honors.
