Football: Admiral Farragut 56, Northside Christian 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Admiral Farragut defeated Northside Christian 56-0 to clinch a playoff spot. The Blue Jackets were led by Rayshawn Jenkins who contributed on offense, defense and special teams.

Northside Christian drove to the AFA 9 on its first possession. Then Jenkins picked off Max Massengill's pass. AFA (8-1, 6-1) converted on a 5-yard touchdown run by Napoleon Maxwell, then extended its lead to 14-0 on a 4-yard pass from Colby Robinson to Austin Craichy.

The special teams got into the act late in the first quarter on a 29-yard punt return by Jenkins. Jenkins scored again early in the second on a 75-yard pass from Robinson. The special teams struck again late on a 35-yard punt return by Brad Hyman to make the score 42-0 at the break.

"These guys deserve it they've worked so hard," AFA coach Chris Miller said, "It gives us a chance to do what we want to do. We're in the tournament now so we'll see what happens from here."
