Football: Jefferson 49, Wharton 7

TAMPA — Jefferson quarterback Quentin Williams' attempt to put his name in the county record books took another step forward Friday. The senior threw for 251 yards and three touchdowns in a 49-7 rout of host Wharton.

"He's consistent every week," said coach Mike Fenton. "I'm happy with the way he's performing. He's the catalyst for our offense."

He certainly was Friday, tossing a 78-yard touchdown to Chris Moore on the opening play. Jefferson (5-0) added more first-half scores on runs from Demetrious Russell (71 and 5 yards) and a fumble recovery in the end zone by Moore. Wharton (2-4) managed to score on a 2-yard run from Jonathan Mahan. The Dragons finished with 496 yards of offense.

Through five games, Williams has 1,400 yards passing and 21 TDs.
