Football: Jefferson 79, Leto 0

TAMPA — Jefferson (4-4) capped off its homecoming week with a 79-0 win over Leto (0-9) Friday night.

The Dragons offense was unstoppable from the first snap of the game, totaling 417 yards on the night. The passing game took center stage, amassing more than 300 yards.

Quarterback Deiondre Porter threw 153 yards and four touchdowns, hooking up with his favorite target, Marquell Jackson, on three scores, including a 30-yard TD and a 40-yard reception to set up another score.

With only five first downs converted, the Falcons offense never got on track to break out a score. Quarterback Michael Serra was just 2 of 9 passing for 18 yards and three interceptions. The Dragons defense played allowed just 5 yards via the ground.

After halftime, the Dragons picked right up where they left off. Starting on their own 45, they quickly scored two plays later on a nice throw from Tyler Small to Shaquille Speights for a 50-yard touchdown to go up 64-0.
