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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
