At Plant
Plant 22, Robinson 0; Jefferson 55, Leto 0

Spring game-breakers: Plant needed just one minute, 36 seconds to score on the opening drive after Colby Brown found Alexander Jackson for a 7-yard touchdown. That score was set up by a 44-yard gain on a swing pass to Patrick Brooks on the opening play. …Robinson’s first drive went 16 plays and chewed up nearly ten minutes of clock but resulted in zero points when Travis Forehand was sacked by Brenden Bomar on a fourth-down play from the Panthers’ 19. …Robinson’s Brandon Peters had an interception and 19-yard return. …Plant completed a halfback pass for a touchdown when Jackson hit Clarke Miller from 34 yards out. …Brooks scored a 22-yard touchdown on a draw play. …Robert Priester caught an 80-yard touchdown from Forehand, but the score was called back for an illegal formation. …Jefferson’s Deiondre Porter threw three touchdowns and ran for another. Porter had 191 yards (125 passing, 66 rushing) of total offense. …Mondreas Lofton had only four carries for Jefferson but gained 113 yards and scored on touchdown runs of 65 and 51 yards. Lofton also had a 27-yard touchdown catch on a screen play. …The Dragons’ Chavez Pownell ran for a 45-yard touchdown on his lone carry. …James Wilson had Jefferson’s first score after catching a 37-yard fly route. …Porter connected with Derrick Ingram on an 11-yard fade for the Dragons’ second TD. …Jeremiah Baltrip scored from 28 yards out on his only carry for Jefferson.

Did you know? Not counting the final drive when it ran out of time, Jefferson scored a touchdown on eight of its nine possessions

Audible 1: “Everything went well. The one interception will drive me crazy, but it was a pretty good night.” — Brown, who finished 10-for-15 for 149 yards, two touchdowns and an interception

Audible 2: “If one gets tired, we’ve got another one, another one, another one. You don’t know who’s going to score with all the weapons we have. You can’t just keep your eye on one person, you’ve got to watch the whole team.” Porter on Jefferson’s plethora of offensive playmakers
