Keswick Christian: Spring football game

At Keswick Christian in St. Petersburg

Spring game-breakers: Keswick Christian QB/WR Doug Sanson demonstrated that he has the capability to play at either position. After a stagnant first half, Sanson led the Crusaders on a 65-yard drive, completing several passes, including a 14-yarder to Maurice Rucker, and then scoring on a 5-yard run. … Sanson later played at wide receiver, catching five passes, including a 14-yarder and 30-yarder. … Isaac Huntley, whom Keswick coach Rick Sanson is looking at for quarterback, played the last two series and almost took the Crusaders down for a tying score. He completed 7 of 9 passes for 74 yards. … Andrew Logue, who along with Rucker will line up at running back, had runs of 12 and 14 yards. … Ethan Engelhardt and Zac Cook each had seven tackles.

Did you know?: Sanson had never lined up at quarterback before this spring. … K Kenny Lucas, who had kickoffs that nearly went into the end zone, has offers from close to 20 colleges. … Including varsity and junior varsity players, Lemon Bay outnumbered Keswick 68 players to 30.

Audible 2: "I definitely felt more at home." — Doug Sanson on playing wide receiver
