Football: Pinellas Park 40, Gibbs 6

PINELLAS PARK — In a game delayed twice by weather, Pinellas Park overwhelmed Gibbs 40-6.

Gibbs turned over the ball six times, which led to four touchdowns for Pinellas Park.

The Gladiators (0-2) overcame a fumble on the opening kickoff when they stopped the Patriots on downs inside the 5 yard. But they were forced to punt, and it took Pinellas Park just four plays to score. A 32-yard completion from Angel Addison to Jalil Crapps gave the Patriots first and goal.

The Patriots (2-0) racked up 305 yards on the ground. Donte Maxson and Oscee Calhoun each had a pair of touchdown runs. Kel-El Williams opened the scoring with a 2-yard run in the first quarter.

Rain delayed the contest by about 20 minutes. With 1:48 left in the first quarter, lightning delayed the game by another 35 minutes. Calhoun had just scored from 3 yards to give Pinellas Park a 20-0 lead.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  5. Twice the talent: IMG football expands to two teams this fall

    Footballpreps

    BRADENTON — When IMG Academy fielded its first varsity football team in 2013, there were 51 players on the roster. Since then, the roster has nearly tripled. With no junior varsity, it was difficult for some to find playing time, and players do not come to IMG to sit the bench.

    The solution? Start another …
