Spring football game: Keswick Christian 38, Bradenton St. Stephen's 28

At Keswick Christian in St. Petersburg

Keswick Christian 38, Bradenton St. Stephen's 28

Spring game-breakers: DeJuan Wright had two touchdown runs and backup quarterback Taylor Angell ran for one and passed for another to help Keswick Christian build a 30-0 halftime lead. …Wright added a touchdown run on a sensational 75-yard scamper in the third quarter following the Falcons' first score of the game to give the Crusaders a 38-6 lead. …The Crusaders then had to survive the throwing antics of junior Jeremy Perron, who followed up his initial 68-yard touchdown pass to start the second half with scoring passes of 8, 15 and 38 yards. …Crusaders junior linebacker Andrew Logue sealed the victory when he intercepted a deep Perron pass with a little over a minute to play. …Wright finished with 180 yards on 20 rushes and Logue had 43 yards on seven attempts. Angell, who normally plays tight end, had an impressive first run at quarterback, finishing with 102 yards on 7-of-15 passing. Artiom Milor caught four passes for 67 yards.

Did you know? Wright transferred from Gibbs two years ago but had to sit out a year and is seeking an additional year of eligibility. After not playing the sport and working on his grades his sophomore year, he is now an honor roll student. Wright will appeal his case to the FHSAA board in late August. …The Crusaders were missing six key starters, including sophomore quarterback Jaylin Coleman (ineligible), sophomore safety Jacob Bouvier (stomach surgery), sophomore wide receiver/linebacker Carl Curtiss (torn meniscus), freshman lineman Will Foster (orbital eye surgery), junior receiver/defensive back Armani Lonardo (hip surgery) and sophomore receiver/linebacker Bobby Sikes (lumbar fracture).

Audible 1: "We feel we have the pieces to have a really good team next year. I mean, the way we played tonight with all these starters out says something about what we can do. I just hope everything goes well with (the appeal). If it does, then it could be an exciting season." — Wright

Audible 2: "I really didn't know what to expect knowing we had all those starters out. We had to get (Angell) up to speed at quarterback in a week and he did a great job. Our whole defensive backfield was on the sidelines and we were a bit worried when (St. Stephen's) lined up with five receivers. We held our own in the first half and the lack of depth obviously got to us in the second half. But overall, I'm very pleased with how we performed." — Keswick coach Rick Sanson

    CLEARWATER — The offense still has a familiar feel. Short passes become big gains. Linemen drive their opponents in reverse, forcefully and repeatedly. Runs along the sideline continue to leave defenders breathlessly behind.

    The outcomes are similar, too.
