The stellar senior stand-out signal-caller accounted for eight touchdowns for the second straight week in a key Region 4-5A contest, as he and his home-standing Gators knocked off visiting East Central 56-35 at Vaughan-Wallace Stadium on the campus of Gautier High School.
The win sets up what will be the battle for the region title in two weeks when Gautier meets unbeaten and reigning Class 5A state champion Picayune to close out the regular season on Thursday, Nov. 3rd.
