Prime time teams

Bishop McLaughlin: Under first-year coach Ken Stills, the Hurricanes are 3-0 for the first time in program history after beating Seven Rivers Christian 42-7 

Bloomingdale: Down 22-0 in the third quarter, the Bulls showed their resolve with a furious rally. They completed the comeback on a 33-yard touchdown pass with no time remaining to pull out a dramatic 25-22 win over Tampa Bay Tech to remain undefeated.

Jesuit: It was ugly. It was turnover-filled. But it was a win. That’s all that matters to the Tigers, who remain unbeaten after fighting through some adversity — and a 14-0 deficit — to beat Berkeley Prep 25-14.

Pasco: After losing 33-0 to Auburndale in the season opener, the Pirates have done a nice job of turning things around. Pasco has blanked its last two opponents, the latest coming against Hollins on Friday.  

Plant: In danger of starting 0-3 for the second straight year, the Panthers found a way to get it done, scoring with little more than a minute remaining to beat Sickles 42-41. It was the first win for new coach Cyril Brockmeier, who took over for the legendary Robert Weiner. 

Sumner: Another game. Another win for the first-year school. The Stingrays remain perfect in their inaugural season by beating Strawberry Crest 22-6.  

Wiregrass Ranch: The Bulls needed a boost after losing a heartbreaker to Clearwater Central Catholic last week. They got it by showing off their potent passing attack to beat rival River Ridge 41-21. 

Prime time performers

QB Rocco Becht, Jr., Wiregrass Ranch: The second-year starter threw six touchdown passes, tying a Pasco County single-game record shared by four others.

WR Agiye Hall, Sr., Bloomingdale: The Bulls faced fourth-and-forever. They needed a touchdown to win. Hall made sure they got it. The Alabama commit did his best Randy Moss impersonation, outleaping three other defenders on a 33-yard touchdown reception on the final play to beat Tampa Bay Tech. 

WR/DB London Hall, Jr., Calvary Christian: The versatile playmaker rushed for a touchdown and scored on a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. 

QB John Owens, Jr., Plant: Made his case to be the full-time starter by throwing for four touchdowns, the last with just more than a minute remaining to beat Sickles.

QB Cam’Ron Ransom, Sr., Armwood: Threw for two touchdowns and ran for more two more before sitting most of the fourth quarter in a 56-10 rout over Hillsborough.

QB Tre Simmons, Sr., Bloomingdale: During the Bulls comeback, Simmons threw three touchdown passes, the last going to Agiye Hall on the final play to beat Tampa Bay Tech.

Sydney Stout reaches 100 touchdown passes — this season

Published

on

Robinson quarterback Sydney Stout reached an impressive milestone with her 100th touchdown pass on Monday.   

That is not a career mark.

Stout reached that total this season.

The senior already had shattered the flag football single-season state record of 79 touchdown passes and entered the Class 2A region final needing just three touchdowns to hit triple digits. 

No problem. 

Stout threw four touchdown passes — in the first half. 

She added another in the second half to give her 102, a number that will continue to grow. 

After all, the Knights beat Lecanto 34-0 in the region final. Robinson, which has won state titles in five of the past six seasons (the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic), advances to the state semifinals on Friday. Stout could end up playing in two more games if the Knights keep their state title streak intact. 

And there’s a good chance of that happening considering Robinson has outscored foes by a combined 816-50 this year.
