The Super Local Data Gridiron: Broncos vs Panthers


Don't ask me about Sunday's big game.  I don't even know whose defense has stronger rebounds.  What I do know is local data.  So I used our latest community and school data to compare the Broncos' and Panthers' hometowns.  Perhaps this will shed some light on who will emerge victorious.  Or maybe it'll just be fun to look at.  Enjoy!
