Football: St. Petersburg 49, Gibbs 20

ST. PETERSBURG — Rashad Lewis ran for 220 yards and five touchdowns and the host Green Devils (6-0) overcame some sloppiness that briefly gave the Gladiators (1-5) hope.

Lewis scored TD runs of 32, 21, 35 and 13 yards in the first half as St. Petersburg led 35-6, then two fumbles and several penalties led to two rushing scores by Gibbs quarterback Devante White.

"We got way too complacent at half, and thought we'd just cruise to another win," St. Petersburg offensive lineman Taylon Culbreth said. "We got together on the sideline and committed ourselves to getting back to what we do."

Once the Green Devils recommitted, Lewis capped a 15-play, 85-yard drive with a 14-yard run.

White rushed for 105 yards and threw for 119 yards.
