The 1982 Castle Knights Championship Run
Nov. 2 — Castle Stadium
ON THE ROAD TO PARADISE –In the opening round of the 1982 Indiana High School Football AAA Playoffs, the Knights would march 80 yards in 10 plays on their opening possession to take a 6-0 lead on a nine-yard pitch out to senior running back David Brosmer.
The Red Devils fought right back, however, as quarterback Sean Welsh completed first-down passes of 13, 23 and 15 yards before sending tailback Bart Denning over left tackle for a two-yard touchdown and a 7-6 lead.
A 24-yard field goal by senior kicker Matt McDowell gave the Knights the lead for good at 9-7. The Knights put Richmond away as senior quarterback Mike Davis hit junior receiver Deon Chester on a nine-yard pass, junior receiver Joe Huff on a 22-yard pass, and senior fullback Neil Chapman on an 11-yard strike before junior running back Chris Brosmer powered the ball over the goal line from the one for a 16-7 lead.
Richmond couldn’t move the ball in the second half thanks to a blistering Knights’ defense that sacked the Red Devil quarterback five times for 53 yards in losses.
The Knights erased any lingering doubts as to the game’s outcome with a double dose of the Brosmer brothers. After Chris scampered for 25 yards, brother David took it home from the three, resulting in the final score of 23-7.
