Dr. Phillips junior RB Dee Hart (No. 15 on Sentinel Florida 100 for 2011) accounted for four touchdowns -- ALL in the same quarter -- during the Panthers' 35-0 rout of Cypress Creek Friday night.
Hart showed his versatility as a playmaker getting into the end zone twice on the ground, via a 25-yard reception and on a 49-yard punt return. For the night he had 9 carries for 55 yards rushing and caught five passes for another 50 yards.
Teammate and WR Kenny Shaw told the Sentinel as late as Thursday that the expected to be on the field Friday, but he was held out by Coach Dale Salapa as a precaution as he nursed the groin he strained in Week 3 against Olympia.
Shaw will have another full week to recover as the Panthers sit out next week with a bye. They open their Class 6A, District 6 schedule at Boone on Oct. 9.
Hutsell impressive on the ground as Boone rollsBoone's Sam Hutsell (No. 51 on the Sentinel CF 100) rushed for 72 yards on five carries and a touchdown in the Braves' 49-13 pounding of Kissimmee Gateway.
Hutsell, who has struggled throwing the ball at times, rested most of the second half as the lead swelled to more than 20 points.
Apopka's super soph RB Quay Barnes shines in victoryApopka Coach Rick Darlington wasn't exactly ecstatic about his team's overall performance in the Blue Darters' 34-10 win over South Lake Friday.
But it was hard for anyone in attendance not to appreciate sophomore RB Quay Barnes individual efforts in the victory.
Barnes accounted for three scores Friday and is turning a lot of heads in the recruiting world though he's still a year removed from truly being courted by potential schools.
Barnes had scoring runs of 25 and 4 yards and also caught a 30-yard touchdown pass from steadily improving QB Keon Brooks, who is getting more comfortable running Apopka's offense. It is Barnes' second straight week with solid numbers. He had 103 rushing yards on 10 carries in the Darters' win over rival Edgewater last week.
