Football: Admiral Farragut 42, Northside Christian 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Admiral Farragut coach Chris Miller sat quarterback Rayshawn Jenkins for the first quarter of Friday's game against Northside Christian after Jenkins faked a kneel down and ran for a long gain in the closing minutes of a lopsided win the previous week.

The loss of Jenkins did not matter to the Blue Jackets, who showed they have multiple weapons in a 42-0 victory. It is the first time Admiral Farragut has beaten the Mustangs since 2005, Miller's first year as coach.

"We have a pretty diversified offense," Miller said. "We work real hard at it, and we have a lot of guys who have been in the system for a couple of years. It's starting to pay off for us."

Without Jenkins, the Blue Jackets (3-0) stuck to the running game in the first quarter with Toddrick Macon scoring on a 2-yard run and Cortavious Givens adding a 5-yard touchdown run to take a 14-0 lead.

Once Jenkins returned, he took over. His first score came on a 23-yard pass to Demetrious Lewis. Jenkins also ran for a 9-yard touchdown to make it 28-0.

Admiral Farragut was so dominant in the first half, it outgained Northside Christian 262-10.

"We've got two nice running backs, some agile receivers and a good offensive line," Jenkins said. "There's just a lot of ways for us to score."

The Blue Jackets received a scare in the third quarter when Macon had to be helped off the field after injuring his knee. He did not return but Miller said it appeared to be a bruise.

Jenkins threw for his second touchdown on a 28-yard pass to Alvin Cunningham to put Admiral Farragut ahead 35-0. Jenkins finished with 97 yards passing and 55 rushing.

With a running clock in the final quarter, the Blue Jackets added another score on a 25-yard run by Chris Myrick.

The lone bright spot for the Mustangs (0-3) was running back Jeremy Smith, who had 98 yards on the ground, including a 33-yard run.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
