Football: Carrollwood Day 34, Landmark Christian 6

HAINES CITY — Jon Gruden might not be the biggest star of Carrollwood Day's football team, but he is the biggest Gruden.

Deuce Gruden, the 5-foot-6 son of the former Bucs coach, threw for an early touchdown and ran for another score in Carrollwood Day's 34-6 victory over Landmark Christian on Friday night.

'"There is nothing I want to do more than watch my sons play football," said Gruden, who will leave for Chicago today for his next assignment as an analyst on Monday Night Football.

Deuce Gruden, a junior, ran 13 times for 23 yards, completed 3-of-5 passes for 51 yards and also played a fine game at safety.

Deuce Gruden's first pass went for a 26-yard touchdown to Andy Embody just over two minutes into the game, and Carrollwood Day (3-1) led all night before a soggy crowd of about 250.

Landmark Christian (1-3) got back in the game on Keland White's 25-yard touchdown run late in the first half. But Robert Davis ended two Patriot threats with interceptions, then ran 81 yards for Carrollwood Day's final touchdown.
