Football: Jesuit 14, Blake 0

TAMPA — For the final three quarters, the rain never stopped. The Jesuit defense never let up.

Jesuit (2-2, 2-1) held Blake (1-3, 0-3) to 47 yards and forced three turnovers in a 14-0 victory Friday night in a Class 5A, District 8 contest. Reggie Brown set the tone by intercepting the Yellow Jackets' first pass on the game's first series. And when Jesuit starter Kevin Newman left with a bruised right knee on his first carry of the third quarter, Brown stepped in and rushed for 92 yards on 14 carries, capped by a 2-yard TD run.

"Reggie is a change of pace guy," coach James Harrell said. "Our O-line did an outstanding job of blocking to open up those holes."

D.J. Diaz went the distance in his first varsity start at quarterback for the Tigers, who took a 7-0 first-quarter lead on Parker Clonts' 1-yard run. Leading 14-0 with six minutes remaining, Travis Johnson halted a Blake drive at the Jesuit 2 with a fumble recovery.
