North Jackson rolls past Priceville
With their fast-moving offense hitting on all cylinders, it only took the Chiefs an average of 59 seconds to reach the end zone in their nine scoring possessions, not counting a 77-yard interception return that only took 12 seconds.
The teams were so mis-matched that the North Jackson starters were off the field in the second quarter, giving way to the reserves who scored four times themselves. All players dressed for North Jackson saw action in the game, with no starters touching the field after the half.
Senior QB Will Richard connected on 10-of-14 passes for 245 yards and five touchdowns in the game with one interception, the second week in a row he has thrown five TD passes.
Richard has completed 21-of-29 passes for 422 yards and 10 touchdowns, with two interceptions this season.
Junior Montel Hale caught four of Richard's passes Friday night for 149 yards and broke all of them for touchdowns. Hale has eight catches in two games for 195 yards and seven touchdowns, an average of 24.4 yards per catch.
Senior Jovani Taylor caught three passes against Priceville for 82 yards and scored two touchdowns. Taylor has six catches for the season for 124 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 20.7 yards a catch. As a team, the Chiefs are averaging 20.8 yards per catch in two games.
On defense, North Jackson forced the Bulldogs to punt on all possessions except for the one where they threw the interception to the Chiefs. The Bulldog offense was smacked down on every possession and never was able to really get anything started.
Seniors Zack Hammontree and Johnathan Davis led the defense with seven tackles each, and both had a half sack. North Jackson sacked the Bulldog quarterback five times in the game.
North Jackson is now 2-0 for the season, while Priceville fell to 1-1. North Jackson continues its region schedule at DAR on Friday. Kickoff is at 7:00 PM in Grant, Ala.
