Southmoore opened the second quarter with a 21-yard touchdown run by Pierce Spead. Edwards followed with scoring passes of 57 yards to Johnathan Martin – a fade route, which Edwards threw off his back foot – and 22 yards to Jackson Stallings, putting the SaberCats up 35-6 at halftime. At that point, they had 419 yards of offense to Carl Albert's 28.
The pass to Martin “was one of the better throws I've seen since I've been coaching here,” said Brickman, who was an assistant on the Southmoore staff under previous head coach Chris Jensen.
Edwards capped his night with a 61-yard touchdown pass to Adams late in the third quarter. Karltrell Henderson, who had 15 carries for 90 yards to lead the SaberCats' rushing attack, later added a 27-yard scoring run.
Edwards already has received an NCAA Division I baseball scholarship offer from Arkansas, but said he would consider going the football route in college if he got some offers.
“I would love to play football, but I'm kind of realistic with my height,” he said. “If someone gave me the chance to play D-1 football, that would be great, but right now, I'm just not worried about it.”
