Prime time teams

Tampa Bay Tech: After losing to Bloomingdale and Plant City each on the final play of regulation, the Titans finally pulled one out on the last play, beating Armwood 48-47. Tampa Bay did it by rallying from a 20-point halftime deficit. It marks the second time in the past four years the Titans have knocked off the Hawks. 

Jesuit: A battle of unbeatens turned out to be no contest as the Tigers rolled to a 55-6 halftime lead before putting on the breaks in a 55-14 win over Robinson. Six of Jesuit’s seven wins have been by double digits. Though the final three regular season games are on the road, the Tigers have a good shot at staying undefeated heading into the playoffs. 

Calvary Christian: In what was their biggest test of the season, the Warriors jumped out to a 21-0 halftime lead on defending Class 2A state semifinalist Lakeland Victory Christian and cruised to a 35-14 win to remain undefeated. 

Pinellas Park: After losing two of their last three games, the Patriots bounced back with a 29-0 win over Sunlake to get above .500. The key was a rushing attack that racked up more than 300 yards. 

Gaither: The Cowboys have posted three straight shutouts and have given up a combined 20 points all season. That unit was so dominant, it allowed Land O’ Lakes to reach midfield just once in a 56-0 victory.  

River Ridge: The Royal Knights success is due in large part to their defense. In River Ridge’s four wins this season, it has allowed just 16 points. 

Tampa Catholic: In their first game since losing to rival Berkeley Prep, the Crusaders bounced back in a big way, beating Winter Haven 34-24. The defense led the way by picking off four passes. 

Wharton: Under first-year coach Mike Williams, the Wildcats are off to one of their best starts in school history. Defense is a big reason for the 5-0 start. Wharton has allowed just 23 points all season.  

Prime time performers

RB/DB Austin Blanford, Sr., Fivay: Not only did Blanford have 10 tackles on defense, but he also ran for a touchdown and returned a punt for another score in a win over Freedom

RB Jyree Dodson, Dunedin: Rushed for 220 yards on 11 carries in a win over Cypress Creek

RB Kai Martin, Sr., Calvary Christian: Ran for two touchdowns in a win over Lakeland Victory Christian. 

DL Mykel McBurrows, Sr., Pinellas Park: Recorded four sacks in a win over Sunlake

QB Enzo Tedesco, Sr., Chamberlain: Threw for two touchdowns in a win over Gibbs

QB Cam’Ron Ransom, Sr., Armwood: The Georgia Southern commit threw for six touchdowns and ran for another in a loss to Tampa Bay Tech

QB Joe Pesansky, Sr., Jesuit: Completed 11 of his 14 passes for 323 and two touchdowns and ran for another score in a win over Robinson.  

WR Mario Williams, Sr., Plant City: Had four catches for 124 yards and a touchdown in win over Strawberry Crest. 

QB David Wright, Sr., Tampa Bay Tech: The veteran had five touchdown passes, all in the second half, to lead a furious rally in a win over Armwood.

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.
