DEMOCRAT STAFF REPORT • May 23, 2010
Florida High used a stifling defense and a consistent offense to win it’s football spring game over West Gadsden 34-0 on Friday night. Senior quarterback Dewayne Harvey completed 16-of-23 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns, and also rushed for 30 yards on four carries.
“He really led the way for us, in the air and on the ground,” Florida High coach Jarrod Hickman said.
Both of Harvey’s touchdown passes came in the second half when the Seminoles blew the game wide open.
Senior Nolan Norton scored on runs of 5 and 10 yards in the first half as Florida High took a 13-0 lead into halftime.
Seniors Jordan Jackson and Rodney Trammell led Florida High’s tough defense. Jackson had three tackles for loss and a sack. Trammell led the team with seven tackles.
“Anytime you pitch a shutout you’re doing something well,” Hickman said. “We gave up a few plays but got the stops when we needed to.”
Hickman called it an ideal showing for his team heading into the summer.
“It’s a great step for us,” he said. “We weren’t perfect, but we did a lot of good things and executed. We definitely have some things to fix, but we also have some things to build on.”
