Football jamboree at Durant

At Durant


Armwood 40, Plant City 14

Newsome 42, Durant 13

Spring game-breakers: Plant City drove 57 yards downfield in six plays to score on its first possession. But after a punt on its first possession, Armwood scored on each of its remaining five with Josh Grady passing for 146 yards, passing for two touchdowns (to Alvin Bailey and A.J. King) and running for another while Matt Jones had two scoring runs. …In an extreme case of the jitters, quarterback Bennie Coney accounted for five of the Raiders' eight fumbles. Coney did look good at times, passing for 124 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown to Lamarlin Wiggins. …The Wolves scored on their first play from scrimmage with Royce Easley racing down the right sideline on a 69-yard reverse. The Cougars needed one more play than that to reach the end zone as Jarvis Scott scampered 69 yards on a pitchout. …Conner Powers capped a more traditional five-play, 80-yard drive with a 5-yard run for Newsome's go-ahead touchdown. …Newsome quarterback Will Worth, a freshman and played mostly linebacker last fall, showed maturity beyond his years by repeatedly guiding his team downfield. He ran for three touchdowns out of the Wing-T.

Audible 1: "All the little things, as far as fundamentals and execution, I felt pretty good about. We came out healthy, so I'm pretty happy." — Armwood coach Sean Callahan

Audible 2: "(Will Worth is) just one of them playmakers. He started last year at linebacker because we had Matt Klenke. We knew that he was going to be the guy who was going to come in and fill that quarterback position." — Newsome coach Ken Hiscock

    Ronde Barber says these days "it's hard to find throwbacks, where you go, 'That guy is a badass.' Where do you find that now? It's such a show-off sport." (Times 2012)
  2. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
