Tampa Bay Tech 13, Freedom 0; Wharton 13, King 0

Spring game-breakers: Wharton running back Terrance Smith gained just 30 yards on six carries, but found holes and bounced and twisted for extra yards, setting up a goal-line sneak by Bryce Martin. Smith also had a huge, 36-yard catch on a third and long that kept Wharton’s final drive alive. …The King defense silenced Division I prospect Auden Tate most of the half. But Tate climbed the ladder to haul in an 8-yard catch, then caught a 20-yard TD, fading away to his left, just getting both feet in bounds. …The Titans allowed minus-8 yards on Freedom’s first three drives. On the fourth, the Titans blocked the fourth-down punt and recovered it in the end zone. Anthony Davis was huge for Tech with two solo tackles for loss and 1 1/2 sacks. Bruno Jean capped the first half with a sack of his own. 

Did you know? TBT has brought on ex-quarterback Aaron Midthus to help with the offense. 

Audible: “I tried to keep it cool all day. It didn’t really hit me until we pulled into the stadium and that feeling came over me and I started smiling.” — new King coach Trey Thomas, who spent six years as an assistant
