Spring football: Agape Christian 38, Cambridge 0

At Skyway Park

Score: Agape Christian 38, Cambridge 0

Spring game-breakers: The Lancers were stuffed at every attempt to run the football. However, their short passing game was effective, especially in the first half. Rising sophomore quarterback Garrett Young went 12-for-15 passing for more than 100 yards. He threw two interceptions, but they were late in the game when the Lancers were forcing the ball down the field.

"Garret has a tremendous amount of poise for a freshman," Cambridge coach Bob Dare said.

Rising junior Robbie Robertson is a two-way star on the rise for Cambridge. He caught eight passes for 84 yards and earned most of those yards after the catch. He also made several good plays on defense, extinguishing a two two-point conversions and getting several key stops.

Did you know? Young supplanted last year's starting quarterback in Phillip Johnson for the spring game. Dare has already anointed Young as his starter for the fall. … Agape Christian, only fielded 18 players, but it had two 300-pound interior linemen that Cambridge just had no answer for.

Audible 1: "The reason you play a spring game is so you know who you are. We know who we are now. We're young, there's no doubt about that. But that's how you get better." — Dare

Audible 2: "We're going to look at the film on Monday, and the film doesn't lie. We are going to see your first step, what you did and why you ended up on your back with a 300-pound guy on top of you." — Dare
