PLANTATION Fla. - One of the most storied, respected, and successful programs in the state of Florida and a First Coast giant, Jacksonville Bolles rolled into South Florida last night seeking to upset the American Heritage Patriots on their homecoming night.
One of the better matchups from around the state, the game didn't live up to the hype. American Heritage (6-1) dismantled Bolles (4-2) 60-21, as the Patriots offense moved up and down the field in flash drives, scoring 42 points in three plays or less on every drive, with each scoring play coming from at least 35 yards out. The offense also registered eight plays of 25 yards or more, all in the first half.
Senior wideout Isaiah McKenzie opened the scoring, taking a bubble screen 80 yards on the Heritage's first offensive play. After a quick three and out for Bolles, senior RB Sony Michel (Georgia) joined the scoring party with a 35-yard scamper. Bolles again failed to sustain a drive, and junior quarterback Torrance Gibson found Dallas Perez on a 69-yard scoring strike on the ensuing possession as American Heritage was up 21-0 halfway through the first quarter.
After the midway point in the opening period, Michel ran a wheel route out of the backfield past a Bolles safety and Gibson hit Michel in stride for a 58-yard touchdown pass, Gibson's third of the first quarter. Bolles would then drive the length of the field to get on the board, putting the score at 28-7.
Gibson would counter on the next possession with a scramble to his left, finding an opening and racing through the Bolles defense for a 67-yard touchdown run. To put the game out of reach, Michel would add a 56-yard run in the second quarter, and the Patriots put away the Bulldogs early on their way to building a 42-14 halftime lead.
Adding insult to injury, Patriots RB Travis Jackson contributed a 35-yard score to put American Heritage up 50-14 early in the third quarter.
