BAKER — It was a complete team effort for the Baker School football team Friday night as the Gators gave the home fans at Doug Griffith Memorial Stadium plenty to cheer about.

Baker's defense forced seven Holmes County turnovers. Richard Stroheker had three interceptions and T.J. Miller scored on a 15-yard interception return.

The Gator special teams came up with a touchdown in the first quarter when Dakota Campbell blocked a Blue Devil punt and Chase Holt scored from 20 yards out.

And, oh yes, the Gators played a little offense too as D.J. Thomas ran for 135 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries. Gator quarterback Jon Beck also threw a pair of touchdown passes as Baker rolled to a 55-6 win.

"I think the intensity of our play on the front on both sides of the ball kind of set the tone tonight," Gator coach Matt Brunson said. "Our offensive line did a great job and our fullback, Brandon Engler, did a great job of blocking.

"Our running game got going and then we completed some passes, which we were proud of. And then our defense started scoring."
