Not a bad start to the season for QB James Summers(Page), as his Hargrave Military Academy post graduate team picked up a nice win, in their first game of the season….Summers with 123 yards and two touchdown passes…..
from the Hargrave Military Academy web site:
The 2012 Post Graduate Football team opened their season with a win over the visiting Southern Tech Wildcats. The atmosphere was exciting as the new Post Grad Team debuted under the lights at Dick Dyer Field. The contest was hard fought and ultimely the strength of the Tigers won out 20-0.
The defense sparked the team as they forced 5 INT’s and 3 forced fumbles (recovering 1). Shawn Hall, Stephen Marsh, Mike Tyson (2), and Cordrea Tankersley each had interceptions. Cordrea Tankersley returned his INT for a 60 yard return and touchdown. Defensive End Shaq Lawson was the leading tackler after recording 8 tackles and 2 sacks. Other top tacklers were Linebackers Lester Liston and Leonard Floyd.
Offensively the Tigers were led through the air by Artimas Samuel. Samuel recorded 6 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. Tight End Monte Taylor also hauled in a scoring pass and terrific catch down the middle. Quarterback James Summers(Page High School) threw for 123 yards and both scores. Another offensive highlight was the punt return ability of Tristan Walker. Walker had 88 return yards and 50 of those coming from a dazzling return late in the game.
The Tigers were excited by their first win of the season, but know there is still work to be done as the games continue. The Tigers play next on saturday night, September 8th under the lights at home against the Gators of Hampton Roads Community College.
