Thomas runs wild as Gators beat Freeport (photo gallery)

“It’s feels amazing,” Thomas said. “All we’ve worked for came together on one big night. I can’t describe the feeling.

“I’ve got to give a shout to my linemen. They made those holes possible and everything.”

The Gator offensive line of Dakota Campbell, Dakota Blackburn, Bubba Ellis, Zach Way and Jake Rainey opened hole after hole for Thomas and the other Gator backs.

And although receivers Wilder Kersey, Kodi Nixon and Moen didn’t see many passes they contributed to the Baker’s ground attack with key blocks.

Moen did manage snag two Jon Beck passes for 104 yards that included the touchdown as the Gators showed they could throw the ball a little too.

“They were hitting us in the mouth on defense, but we always seem to get things going on offense,” Moen said. “We always give the ball to D.J. And we always have to give a shout out to our line.

“Once our line starts doing it we can start taking two steps back and put the ball up in the air and make big plays like we did tonight.”
