TAMPA — Jefferson tends to save its best for last. In the final game of the season, the Dragons (6-4) played their best game on both sides of the ball demolishing Brandon (1-9) 41-0 Friday.
It was the second year in a row Jefferson ended its regular season with a big win over Brandon.
But unfortunately for coach Jeremy Earle and the Dragons, the season again ended with the team not making it to the playoffs.
"We know what we have with this team and we showed it tonight," Earle said. "We definitely have playoff talent, but the cards didn't fall our way this year. We have a lot of talented guys coming back and we will build off of that."
Senior Shaquille Speights ended his career with a couple of scores and more than 100 yards while Deiondre Porter also was big with four touchdown passes.
