Spring football: Alonso 12, Steinbrenner 10; Sickles 8, Gaither 6

at Tampa

Alonso 12, Steinbrenner 10; Sickles 8, Gaither 6

Spring game-breakers: Alonso quarterback Chris Oladokun threw two touchdown passes — both to Derrick Walker — in the closing minutes to cap the Ravens' rally. The first came on a 9-yard pass on fourth down; the second was a 35-yard lob with 26 seconds left. Oladokun finished 11-of-15 passing for 180 yards in the two-quarter game. …Steinbrenner's Division I recruit Kezio Snelling returned the opening kickoff for the Warriors' only TD. …Sickles star Ray Ray McCloud III dominated the second game with 98 yards from scrimmage on 13 touches. McCloud, who lined up at running back, quarterback and receiver, had a 4-yard TD rush and a 50-yard score brought back because of a delayed timeout. …Isaac Holder added a two-point conversion rush for the Gryphons. …Gaither's only score came on a 40-yard burst by Malik Huff, who also threw a 27-yard pass on a trick play.

Audible: "Isaac Holder isn't given enough credit. That kid is the best quarterback in our county. I think he's the best quarterback in the state." — Sickles coach Brian Turner
