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

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.

  2. Bucs journal: Simeon Rice gives master class on sacks to defensive ends

    Bucs

    TAMPA — As the Bucs seek their first 10-sack season from a player since Simeon Rice in 2005, who better to help that cause than Rice himself?

  5. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big

    Bucs

    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
