High school football: London Potts leads Millwood to win over Douglass in Soul Bowl
Accounting for 182 of Millwood's 261 yards through the air, QB London Potts — with some help from a strong defense — guided the Falcons to an 18-7 victory over Douglass Saturday in the 37th annual Soul Bowl at Moses F. Miller Stadium.

Potts had 25- and 27-yard completions to McMillan on Millwood's next scoring series early in the second quarter, the last being a crucial throw on fourth-and-12 to keep the drive alive. McMillan finished with five catches for 150 yards.
“London is getting better each week,” Millwood coach Tony Henry said. “He knew where he was going at the snap, made some good reads and played great.”
When Sheldon Bulock scored from 2 yards moments after the fake punt, the Falcons were up 18-0 and had all the points the defense would need.
“When you hold Douglass to seven points on their field, you can't point to one guy who played well,” Henry said. “All of those guys played well. To be able to keep them from scoring until there's about 2:30 left — I don't think we could play this game again and do that.”
The Falcons (2-0) now turn their focus to Prime Prep Academy, a Dallas-area charter school co-coached by NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. Millwood will host Prime Prep on Friday night.
“We know they'll come ready to play, so we have to be ready to play,” Potts said. “It's on our home field, so we don't plan on losing there.”
