ST. PETERSBURG — With senior running back Ryan Green leading the way, St. Petersburg Catholic knocked off Out-Of-Door Academy 63-21 Friday.

The future Florida State Seminole wreaked havoc all night, finishing with five carries, 196 yards and four rushing touchdowns.

“Everyone’s got to game-plan for Ryan Green,” Barons coach Steve Dudley said.

Out-of-Door couldn’t stop Green, who also caught a 73-yard touchdown pass from sophomore Jack Sheehan. Sheehan connected with Green for the Barons’ second touchdown, giving them a 14-0 lead.

“He’s mature beyond his years,” Dudley said of Sheehan. “He’s a quiet field general.”

St. Petersburg Catholic also got contributions from sophomore Jaquan Fuller in the kicking game. He reached the end zone twice on kick returns, totaling 162 yards. He also had 62 yards rushing.

The Barons dominated the line of scrimmage and forced two fumbles. One fumble was returned for a 69-yard touchdown by sophomore Stephon Williams.

Out-Of-Door requested to end the game before the start of the fourth quarter. Dudley recognized his team's mistakes, but was also aware of the youth and is optimistic for the season.

“The little things are frustrating,” he said. “But I’ve got to remember that a lot of our guys are freshmen and sophomores. We’ve just got to drill them more in practice and get them game ready.”
