Football: Hillsborough 43, Chamberlain 15

TAMPA — Hillsborough junior running back Trevor Steinke had a career game on a night when Chamberlain coach Joe Severino called it a career.

Steinke set personal highs with his three touchdowns and 143 yards rushing on 19 carries Thursday as Hillsborough (8-2) scored 43 unanswered points in a 43-15 win over Chamberlain (1-9). Steinke led a ground attack that piled up five touchdowns and 289 yards. Steinke scored on runs of 4, 5 and 49 yards. He also ran in a two-point conversion.

It was the final game for the retiring Severino, 58, who finished with a lifetime record of 72-116 at Chamberlain, Gaither, King and Tampa Bay Tech.

"It looks like we got beat by a better team (Thursday)," Severino said, "but not a team who gave any more effort. These guys gave great effort all year. Right now, I might take time off and might show up again somewhere — who knows? — and just coach."

Chamberlain junior running back Xavier Johnson led the Chiefs with 123 yards and a TD. Hillsborough's blitz started after Nick McNeal gave Chamberlain a 7-0 lead on a 10-yard run.
