Trojans celebrate Homecoming with 50-point win

by Tyler Lennon

The Cumby Trojans football team hosted Tyler All Saints Friday, in front of a packed Homecoming crowd. After dropping their first two games, Cumby was looking to get back to the .500 mark, after beating Mercy Culture Prep 24-0 in Week 3. 

The Trojans got out to a great start, picking up exactly where they left off in Week 3. Cumby was almost able to duplicate their score from the following week in the first frame alone, leading 22-0 at the end of the first quarter. 

They kept their strong playing going in the second quarter, putting up another 22 points before the end of the half. Cumby was once again able to hold their opponents scoreless, as they took a 44-0 lead into the second half. 

The second half saw a much quieter game, with neither team putting any points on the board in the third quarter. The Trojans added another six points in the fourth, walking away with the 50-0 win. 

Sophomore quarterback Chett Vaughn had a strong showing, finishing with a QBR of 119.3. The sophomore threw for 105 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for a touchdown and 32 yards. 

The leading rusher for the Trojans was freshman Dakari Johnson, who had exactly 100 yards on 11 tries. Sophomore Braylon Boggs also had a strong showing, racking up 73 yards and one touchdown on just five attempts.

Senior Clay Krotky and freshman Jace Evans led the team in receiving, each catching two passes and one touchdown. Krotky had 34 yards, while Evans had 20 yards. Senior Dakota Ridings had one catch, which went for a 51-yard touchdown.

Defensively, the team was led by Chett Vaughn and Chayton Vaugh, who each had one interception. Senior Cristian Vizcaya had the lone sack of the night for the Trojans. 

After losing back-to-back games, the Cumby Trojans are red hot as they enter their non-district finale. Both of their losses were close, falling 36-28 to Tom Bean and 18-12 to Union Grove.

Since then, they have outscored their last two opponents by a combined 74-0. For the season, Cumby has scored an impressive 114 points, making for an average of 28.5 points per game. 

For the same span, the Trojans have allowed just 54 points, making for an impressive average of just 13.5 points allowed per game. 

Cumby will look to keep their winning streak going and extend it to three games this week, as they travel to Trenton. This will make for their final non-district game, before getting their bye week the following week.

The Trojans open district play on the road, Friday, Oct. 7 against Detroit.
