Largo 55, Leto 0

TAMPA — After the news that Largo starting quarterback Juwan Brown might be out for the season with a knee injury, the Packers wanted to show that they could still win big. They did that Friday as they beat winless Leto.

The Packers (5-1) relied heavily on their running game. Of 454 yards of offense, 423 were rushing yards. Freshman running back Jarvis Stewart totaled 159 yards.

"It was very important to come out with a big win tonight," Stewart said. "Even though our quarterback is out, everyone came together tonight so we could win."

With a 34-0 lead at halftime, the Packers scored touchdowns on all but two possessions.

Largo defensive back Adrian Howell also came up big with two interceptions.

Jiovanny Figueroa had 77 receiving yards for the Falcons (0-5).
