Football: Cambridge 68, Admiral Farragut 45

TAMPA — Two Cambridge seniors lead an offensive explosion that knocked 2011 state finalist Admiral Farragut out of the playoffs in a 68-45 stunner.

In their last game as Lancers, Brandon Park and Robbie Robertson combined for 10 TDs and 396 receiving yards. Each senior also had an interception and combined for 145 rushing yards.

Farragut (8-2, 6-2) couldn't keep up with the aerial attack of Cambridge (6-4, 4-4), led by sophomore Garrett Young's 419 yards on 21-of-28 passing and seven TDs. Todd Macon had touchdown runs of 42 and 37 yards, but was otherwise limited by the Cambridge defense. He finished with 137 yards on 17 carries, and Kevon Woods added 113 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

For the second year in a row, Cambridge coach Bob Dare fooled the Admiral Farragut defense with the same trick play. Park pretended to go to the sideline, but stayed in bounds. Young tossed him the ball, and he went 81 yards untouched for a touchdown that put the Lancers up 18 heading into halftime.

"Everything seemed to click — I don't think anything we called in the first half didn't work," Dare said. "Those two were the playmakers. It was pretty obvious."

  4. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
