Football: Armwood 80, Strawberry Crest 0

SEFFNER — Armwood has the best defense in the state and maybe the best player in Alvin Bailey. The Hawks did nothing but strengthen that claim Friday night against Strawberry Crest.

In an 80-0 thrashing, Armwood (7-0, 4-0) extended its scoreless quarter streak to 24, and Bailey had two returns for touchdowns and two receiving scores.

"I've had all of the Bailey boys and he is the best," coach Sean Callahan said. "I think he is probably the best football player in the state. He can do everything."

Strawberry Crest was handcuffed by Armwood's swarming defense. The Hawks held Strawberry Crest (0-6, 0-3) to no first downs in the first half and two for the game. Armwood scored on a fumble return by Eric Striker, had a pair of safeties and gang tackled the Chargers all night.

"That's what we try to do on that side of the ball," Callahan said. "We like to get a lot of guys running at the football."

Hawks quarterback Darryl Richardson threw three touchdowns.
