Football: Dixie Hollins 19, Northeast 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Kabriel Jackson ran for two touchdowns as the visiting Rebels gave coach Shannon Brooks his first win a week after narrowly missing out in an overtime loss to Dunedin.

"It feels good to win and for the kids to experience it," Brooks said.

Dixie Hollins held Northeast to 164 yards of offense and six first downs and forced two turnovers.

"Goose eggs are hard to do," Brooks said. "The defense did great and played together as a unit."

Jacquez Hill had an interception and caught five passes for 110 yards and a touchdown for the Rebels.

All of the scoring came during the first half. Jackson, who had 54 rushing yards and 25 receiving, scored on runs of 5 and 4 yards. Tyrie Adams was 10-of-16 for 145 yards and a touchdown.

The Vikings' Keith Harrington ran for 61 yards on 25 carries and threw for 57 yards after starter Markus Purdy left with a rib injury.

  1. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say that the Rays are out of it, but they did score six runs Tuesday in a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off major right knee surgery, understandably often takes it easy running the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single.

  3. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.

  5. 'Hard Knocks' star Riley Bullough still not a lock for Bucs

    Bucs

    TAMPA — Bucs undrafted rookie LB Riley Bullough is perhaps the surprise star of HBO's Hard Knocks and has been productive in two preseason games, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that he's caught in a numbers game competing for a backup spot on the Tampa Bay roster.
