Football: Sickles 38, Strawberry Crest 17

TAMPA — Sickles senior Lee Myers, who hadn't played a game at quarterback since his sophomore season because of a knee injury last year, led the Gryphons to a 38-17 homecoming win over Strawberry Crest on Friday.

Myers rushed for 102 yards and three TDs, and threw for 91 yards.

"We let him have a few throws on Monday," coach Brian Turner said. "And he looked pretty good. Then we gave him a few more Tuesday and Wednesday. By the end of the week, he looked so good we decided to start him. He did a tremendous job."

After Alex Carswell caught a touchdown pass to put the Chargers ahead 7-0, Sickles scored the next 17 points. The Chargers tied the game early in the third quarter, but Sickles scored the next 21 points to put the game away.
