Football: Tampa Bay Tech 69, Freedom 0

TAMPA — Tampa Bay Tech rained on Freedom's homecoming parade Friday night, pummeling the Patriots 69-0.

The Titans put up 26 points in the opening quarter. Senior quarterback Aaron Midthus threw for two touchdowns and ran for another. Sophomore running back Deon Thompson (two rushing TDs) led the way for a Titans backfield that ran for six scores. Nine players scored on offense for TBT.

Defensively, the Titans were just as strong. The Freedom offense was held to minus-5 yards on the ground and completed just 6 of 21 passes. Senior defensive lineman Andrew Green dominated up front, notching four sacks. Senior cornerback Armani Sampson returned an interception for a TD.

The Titans (5-3, 4-0) remain undefeated in the district heading into a huge district showdown next week against Gaither.

"Gaither is a tough team so we're going to have to be very prepared for next week," coach Jayson Roberts said. "But our guys are confident. We'll be ready to go."
