Football: Jefferson 39, Leto 6

TAMPA — After scoring 39 unanswered points in the first half, Jefferson coasted to a 39-6 road win over Leto. The Dragons (4-4, 3-2) were led by Deiondre Porter, who threw for 196 yards and four touchdowns on 10-of-14 passing — all in the first half.

Jefferson defensive back Chavez Pownell also had a productive night, finishing with one interception and a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown. Leto (0-9, 0-5) saw starting quarterback Kyle Johnson go out with an injury early in the second half. Adner Grajales finished in his place and scored the Falcons' only touchdown.

"This team has come so far from the adversity they faced at the beginning of the season, to the tough schedule," Jefferson coach Jeremy Earle said. "We've learned so much together, and it's really been a pleasure coaching this team."
