Gaither football jamboree

At Gaither

Hillsborough 17, Chamberlain 0

Middleton 13, Gaither 3

Spring game-breakers: Hillsborough quarterback Tarean Austin went down with a leg injury early in the first quarter. Austin, who completed three of his first four passes, was taken to a local emergency room, coach Earl Garcia said. The injury could be a hairline fracture between the knee and ankle of his left leg, according to Garcia. Austin, a rising senior, has more than 30 offers from Division I schools including Illinois, Wake Forest and USF. … RaVon Bullard filled in at quarterback and threw a touchdown to Charles Lovett. … Chamberlain had five first downs and did not get past the 50-yard line. Middleton first-year coach Jason Stokes got his first win. … Tigers quarterback Willie Clay completed three passes to Demario Buie for 108 yards.

Did you know? Tennessee defensive coordinator and former Bucs assistant Monte Kiffin was in attendance, along with recruiters from Iowa State and Rutgers, among others.

Audible: "I like the personality of this team. They bring a lunch pail attitude to everything and go to work." — Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia
