RUSKIN — Berkeley Prep traveled south to play Lennard (1-4) and again routed a team in a higher FHSAA classification. The Buccaneers (5-0) humbled the Longhorns 42-14 behind Destin Nichols' four touchdown passes. National recruiting prospect Nelson Agholor added 146 yards from scrimmage and two TDs, one each rushing and receiving.
Nichols got things started with a 58-yard touchdown to Christian Hardegree on the first play from scrimmage. Nichols ended up 8-of-9 for 226 yards before being rested late in the third quarter.
"The game's slowed down for me a lot this year," said Nichols, who has 13 touchdown passes and no interceptions this year. "It seems it's easier to time up (with) my receivers."
Lennard scored on quarterback Pete Foret's 1-yard TD rush just before halftime to get within 35-7. He had 94 yards rushing and 122 yards passing with a TD.
