TARPON SPRINGS --- In Pinellas County, only one football team has two players who rank among the county’s top-10 leaders in rushing.
That senior Adrian Golden, who has 723 yards to rank second, is near the top is no surprise. That teammate Darius Daniels checks in at No. 6 might be.
Thus far, the 5-foot-8, 145-pound junior has 466 yards on only 47 carries, which averages out to 9.9 yards an attempt.
“We’re doing a nice job keeping them fresh,” Spongers coach George Kotis said.
A week ago, the 1-2 punch was deadly to Largo.
Golden had 153 yards and one TD on 22 carries; Daniels had 134 yards and two scores on 16 attempts.
Tarpon Springs (4-1) won 28-20.
It was the second time this season both have topped 100 yards in the same game.
“They give you totally different looks,” Kotis said. “Darius is going to run in a straight line very fast. (Adrian) gives you the shimmy and shake.”
