Jaguars defeat Eagles

From Staff Reports

The Jaguars of Thomas Jefferson Academy defeated the Eagles of David Emanuel Academy on Jaguar Field this past Friday night by a score of 50 to 16.

The Jaguars high powered offense started off slow in the first quarter with only an 8 to 0 lead at the end of the first, but by the half the Jaguars were well in command of the Eagles with a 30 to 6 halftime advantage.


The Jaguars were led by junior Zach Davis who rushed for 208 yards on 14 carries and scored two rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown. Senior Zeke Sammons rushed for 167 yards on 18 carries and hit pay dirt twice. Josh Hopper rushed for 47 yards and one score from fullback, as the Jaguars amassed over 500 yards of total offense on the evening.

Through the air, Rhett Gardner and Dalton Nevils each completed touchdown passes for the Jags. Gardner hit Zach Davis for a 21-yard touchdown strike, and Nevils to Dakota Lamb for a 22-yard score.

Defensively, Zach Smith led the Jaguars with 12 tackles on the night and 2 sacks.

Dakota Lamb and Zach Davis each had 8 tackles with Ryder Watkins and Cole Godowns manning up the middle for the Jaguar defensive front with 7 tackles each.

Coach Chuck Wimberly stated after the contest, “Our offensive and defensive line (Sam Jones, Logan Wasden, Chase Ellison, Cole Godowns, Ryder Watkins, Zach Smith, and Jon Swan) would wear on their (David Emanuel’s) offensive and defensive fronts and as the night went on, we won the battle in the trenches. I was extremely pleased with our offensive performance and our defensive played well and made big plays throughout the night.”

The Jaguars will be at home this Friday to take on AA Convenant Academy from Macon, who will roll into Jaguar Field with a 2-0 record on the young season.

Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. at Jaguar Field.
