Football: Admiral Farragut 34, Indian Rocks Christian 32

TAMPA — The only thing that slowed Armwood on Thursday was pregame traffic.

The Hawks didn't arrive at Sickles until 6:45, pushing the start back to 7:15. But once they were warmed up, there wasn't anything the Gryphons could do to stop them. With the help of a running clock in the fourth quarter, Armwood made quick work of Sickles 35-0.

"When we're working as one, nobody can stop us except for ourselves," said Alvin Bailey, who amassed 264 yards of offense and three touchdowns. "When everybody is clicking at once and we're all together, nobody can stop us."

Bailey slid from receiver to quarterback on the second series of the second quarter after Darryl Richardson re-injured his right bursa sac. Armwood coach Sean Callahan said the latest injury is lower on his knee than the one that caused him to miss three games and he left only for precautionary reasons.

Tight end K.J. Miles also went down with a sprained MCL that will keep him out 1-2 weeks.

Bailey went 7-of-10 for 131 yards and two touchdowns to go with 115 yards and a touchdown on eight carries.

"Alvin Bailey might be the best player in the state of Florida," Callahan said. "There's really nothing he can't do. Whenever we are in a bind, we call on No. 3."

Jarvis McCall, a USF commitment, sparked the Hawks with an interception on Sickles' second possession. The Hawks then went 45 yards in six plays, capped by a 6-yard run by Florida commitment Matt Jones. Jones scored again later in the quarter on a 48-yard run, and Armwood led 28-0 at halftime.

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …

    Evan Longoria is glad to see the Rangers coming to town: He’s batting .296 against them with 15 homers and 56 RBIs in 69 career games.
