Gators tame Tigers

Stroheker scored the game’s final touchdown on a 16-yard run with 7:37 left in the fourth quarter. A 37-yard pass from Beck to Josh Long set up the Stroheker score.

Thomas led the Gator rushers with 77 yards on 14 carries. Stroheker had 37 yards on seven carries. Beck was 5-of-9 passing for 75 yards.

Thomas was quick to praise the guys up front for the success of the Baker running game.

“We’ve got so many weapons everywhere on the field and that’s what happens when you have a beautiful A1 line like we do,” he said. “If you have a good line you can throw anybody back there and know they are going to get three yards a carry.”

About the only complaint Brunson had before having a chance to look at the game film was the trouble the Gators had tackling McCrary. But even Brunson had to admit that big back, who will probably be one of the more heavily recruited prospects in Northwest Florida, will make a lot of people look bad.

Brunson said the win was a nice way to end a good spring.

“Any time you compete you want to win if they are keeping score,” he said. “Overall our guys have worked hard and they reaped the rewards tonight of the hard work they’ve put in by playing well. And I do feel like our guys played well.”
