Preseason football: Jefferson 49, Chamberlain 7

TAMPA — Jefferson's highly productive offense proved too much for Chamberlain to handle in the preseason opener.

Quarterback Quentin Williams used his arm for four touchdowns and found his legs to add one more. The senior threw for more than 230 yards before being pulled halfway through the third quarter.

Jefferson tried the deep ball to Christopher Moore on its first play. After converting the first down, Williams connected with Moore on the same play to advance to the 1-yard line.

Chamberlain's offense was stalled by penalties.

Jefferson scored on the first drive of the second half. The Dragons then recovered an onside kick to keep the pressure on the Chiefs' defense.

Chamberlain intercepted a Williams pass in the third quarter, but it was negated by pass interference.

A 45-yard touchdown pass accounted for the Chiefs' only points.
