Navarro mauls Southeast Prep, 80-0

Bulldogs break recent single-game scoring record

Corsicana —  When a Southwest Junior College Football Conference team is ailing, it can always take solace that Southeast Prep will eventually pop up on the schedule.

Navarro has needed some positives after the last three weeks and just in time Southeast Prep made its way into Tiger Stadium for the Bulldogs’ final non-conference game.

Navarro roared to almost 600 yards of offense and allowed less than 80 in an 80-0 victory on Saturday. Navarro set the school record for points in game, breaking the 76 points it totaled in the season opener against Arkansas Baptist.

This was a game of all positives at a time when the Bulldogs needed one the most. After losing starting quarterback Josh Greer to a broken collarbone in Week 4, followed by back-to-back SWJCFC losses, Navarro was in dire need of a blowout.

That’s exactly what the Bulldogs and their fans got, even though the game was bumped back more than an hour because of a fierce thunderstorm rolling through Navarro County.

Navarro’s running attack was downright vicious in its dismantling of Southeast Prep (0-7), a team that plays only road games and is not unfamiliar with big losses this season. 

The Bulldogs rushed for 420 yards, averaging 9.8 yards per carry. Tim Wright continued his string of 100-yard games, rushing for 161 yards and two touchdowns before sitting midway in the second quarter as Navarro built a 45-0 halftime lead.

Freshmen Ke’Aun Kinner and Josh Cleveland had 82 and 110 yards, respectively. Kinner scored on second-half runs of 9, 29 and 33 yards. Receiver Edwin Mims chipped in a 33-yard score on a third-quarter reverse and Corsicana’s Cameron Washington added a 1-yard scoring run.

“Last year, Tim Wright and Tony Drake were kind of those second tier backs in our offense and this year Tim and Cameron are the top rotation guys,” said Navarro Coach Brian Mayper, whose 16th-ranked Bulldogs are now 5-2 overall. “Hopefully, guys like (Kinner and Cleveland) will continue to make the most of their opportunities as the second tier guys this season.”

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.

    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
