At Dunedin
Score: Seminole 21, Dunedin 18

Spring game-breakers: Seminole’s Ra’Quanne Dickens ran wild against Dunedin’s defense. He gained 242 yards on 26 carries and scored two second-half touchdowns. His first score was an 80-yard run on the first play of the second half. His second was a 41-yard burst with 34 seconds remaining that gave the Warhawks the lead. … Travis Wateska was a solid second running option for Seminole. He gained 87 yards on 16 carries and scored the game’s first touchdown in the first quarter. … Dunedin quarterback Givanni Gonzalez had some good moments. He threw for 201 yards and connected with Jacob Davis on a 78-yard touchdown pass in the first half. He also had a 1-yard touchdown run set up by a 29-yard pass to Andrew Gordon.

Did you know? New Seminole coach Chris Miller watched the game from the sidelines. “I was impressed,” said Miller, who officially takes over Tuesday. “You look to see how hard they compete, and they competed very hard.” … Seminole interim coach Mark DeRuzzo implemented a wing-T running style offense for the spring. Seminole ran the ball 50 times and threw it once. Miller said the team will not run that much in the fall. … Dunedin missed an extra point and two two-point conversions. … Dunedin will graduate 23 seniors and has only five returning starters.

Audible 1: “In the past we ran the ball 70 percent of the time. This game, we threw the ball 70 percent of the time. We have a good quarterback and good athletes on the outside. I’m going to try to get them the ball. What we don’t have is size. We aren’t big.” — Dunedin coach Max Smith

Audible 2: “I figured I was going to touch the ball a lot because the offense was pretty much based on me. We only had 17 days to put this offense in. When you consider that, we did great. I love it. I get to touch the ball more than I did last season.” — Dickens
