If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

That’s been the mentality of Canton football for several years now under  coach Tim Baechler, as his team’s power running game once again proved to be their biggest asset in a 56-12 division win over homecoming opponent Novi.

While the faces underneath the helmets may change, the scheme has remained relatively intact, which is a rarity given the copycat mentality of coaches to latch onto the latest and greatest formations and gimmicks.

Of course with over 200 wins in Baechler’s 20 seasons as  coach, it’s clear that you can’t argue with success.

The offensive beneficiaries for Canton (4-0 overall, 3-1 KLAA Black) on Friday night were the dynamic duo of running backs Colin Troup (14 carries for 169 yards) and Steven Walker (12 carries for 166 yards), whom scored a combined five of the Chiefs’ eight touchdowns.
