Gilman junior quarterback Kai Locksley said he just couldn't forget about getting beat, 28-0, by Paramus Catholic of New Jersey on Sept. 8.
"Zero points is definitely something I put on myself since I play under center," Locksley said.
Locksley took his frustration out on visiting Anacostia on Friday. He rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 1 Gilman to a 56-6 victory over the Indians.
"I definitely played with a lot of anger out there," Locksley said.
Locksley also caught a 20-yard touchdown pass as the Greyhounds led 35-0 less than eight minutes into the game.
He got some help from his teammates. The Greyhounds (2-2) gained 343 rushing yards with Carlton Taylor (3 carries, 39 yards, 1 TD), Robert Levine (5 carries, 47 yards) and Antonio Dupree (2 carries, 41 yards) contributing.
Gilman also received some big plays on defense. Amyhr Barber scored on a 103-yard interception return, Antonio DiCerbo and Devery Hamilton recovered fumbles, and Melvin Keihn and Ellison Jordan recorded sacks.
Locksley got the Greyhounds rolling on the game's third play, rushing 68 yards for a touchdown.
About two minutes later, Locksley scored again on a 15-yard run to put Gilman ahead 13-0.
Then, Jelani Roberts returned a punt for a touchdown and Locksley scored on a pass from freshman quarterback Kasim Hill.
That was three touchdowns in 5:39 for Locksley, and he added a 42-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter when he broke several tackles.
Gilman coach Biff Poggi knows his team will face tougher competition when Gilman hosts Mount St.Joseph on Oct. 4 in its Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener.
"We have to get a lot better over the next two weeks," said Poggi, whose team beat Good Counsel to open the season before being routed by Manatee, of Florida, and Paramus. "We still have a lot of questions and a lot to prove. We are so far away from competing with the best teams in the league."

Aberdeen's season-opening 42-23 win at Edgewood on Sept. 6 was overturned because of the use of an ineligible player, according to school officials.
The Eagles' 52-16 win at Joppatowne last Friday night is not affected.
"The player played the last kickoff against Edgewood. He didn't play against Joppatowne," Aberdeen athletic director Tim Lindecamp wrote in an email. "The player transferred in from Havre de Grace on the first day of school and the administration and myself were unaware that he was a transfer. His grade information never showed up in the failure reports I receive. We are in the process of changing the procedures on how we check eligibility so this does not occur again."
