Jesuit football, ranked No. 2 in Class 5A, improved to 4-0 with a 49-0 pounding of Pasco in Dade City on Friday (Sept. 23).
Once again it was a total team effort as the defense, offense, and special teams all had superb performances.
The defense, led by defensive linemen A.J. Pinion '18, Blake Courtade '18, and Anthony Nelson '18, and linebacker Braden Gilby '18, stymied the Pirates all night.
On special teams, the stellar kicking tandem of Aidan Swanson '19 and Camden Bauman '17 excelled, and Travell Harris '17 returned a punt for a touchdown. In the previous game vs. Jefferson, Harris returned a kickoff for a touchdown.
And on offense, Malik Davis '17, running behind a dominant offensive line, continued his record-breaking ways. Davis' three TDs on Friday give him 64 for his Jesuit career, surpassing the previous school record of 63 set by former Georgia Tech star Will Glover '99.
Davis' 220 rushing yards Friday (on 15 carries) lifts him ahead of Gaither's Lydell Ross and into 4th place on the all-time Hillsborough County rushing list with 5,255 yards. Davis needs 66 yards to pass Riverview's Avious Steadman for 3rd place. Sickles' Ray Ray McCloud, who plays for Clemson, is No. 1 with 5,765.
Quarerback Danny Boon '17 threw two TD passes Friday to Kendrick Torain '18, one of which was a full-extension, highlight-reel grab in the back corner of the end zone. Backup quarterback Brendenn Flynn '18 threw a TD pass to Shane Eilers '17 to cap the scoring.
Next up for the Tigers is a District game at Middleton (4-1) on Friday (Sept. 30).
