Football: Alonso 38, King 7

TAMPA — Senior quarterback Gavin Denboer accounted for four touchdowns to cap his high school career in Alonso's 38-7 rout of King, but the highlight on the Ravens' senior night was a halftime ceremony honoring 2011 graduate and current Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo.

After Alonso (5-5) rolled to an 18-7 halftime lead over the Lions (0-10), first-year coach Reggie Crume stood next to Chickillo during the intermission and announced that the former Ravens standout's No. 95 jersey would be retired. Chickillo, 24, who played collegiately at Miami before being a 2015 sixth-round pick by the Steelers, thrilled those on hand by posing with numerous fans for photographs.

Key drive: Alonso broke it open with 4:05 left in the second quarter as Denboer connected with Cyle Kurina for his third touchdown pass of the half. The Denboer-to-Kurina combo totaled all 48 yards on consecutive passes on the two-play drive, giving the Ravens a 25-7 lead.

Stars of the game: Denboer passed for 214 yards — all in the first half — and completed 9 of 13. He threw touchdown passes to Sclyler Boykin (56 yards), Sidney Surmons (26) and Kurina. Denboer also scored on a 1-yard run. … Kurina caught five passes for 99 yards. … James Holly scored twice on two 7-yard runs for Alonso. … Tim Love led King with 124 yards rushing on 29 carries. … Yoshua Amaglo had the Lions' lone touchdown on a 9-yard run.

Stats of the game: Alonso outgained King 320-150 on offense. … All of the Lions' yardage came on the ground.

Final word: "It's an honor to have my number retired. … A lot of great memories in high school football. I support all the high school sports, and it's just a lot of fun to be back here." — Chickillo
