Jets win five in a row with 63-0 blowout over Grissom

HUNTSVILLE – James Clemens ran over Grissom (2-5, 0-5) Thursday night at Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville on their way to a 63-0 blowout.

The Jets (5-2, 5-0 in Class 7A, Region 4), went on a scoring spree to open the game. They racked up 49 unanswered points by the half. The team was led by a strong performance form the Jets’ defense and a dominant offensive line, which opened huge running lanes all night.

Touchdown runs came from Dylan Blackburn, Tyrik Walker, Chase Starling, JT Elliot and Collin Malone. The Jets added two scores through the air with Connor Cantrell connecting with Chris Hope and Chase Starling finding Manny Sanders.

Blackburn opened the scoring for James Clemens with a 2-yard run after a long run by Tyrone Wilson set up the scoring drive early in the first quarter.

Later in the first, quarterback Cantrell completed a touchdown pass to Chris Hope, with the PAT by Jesse Rowe.

With just a minute before the second quarter, the Jets recovered a Grissom fumble at the Tigers’ 16-yard line, setting up a touchdown run by Tyrik Walker.

Blackburn would run into the end zone again at the top of the second quarter with a 1-yard rushing touchdown — followed by Jesse Rowe’s PAT.

With four minutes left in the second, Starling passed to Sanders for another touchdown. Sterling then ran for 68-yards to set up another Jets touchdown before the half.

The Jets would also score again twice before wrapping up the night, once with a rushing touchdown in the third quarter and again in the fourth.

Strerling would end the night with two touchdowns, passing and running. He ran for 125 yards.

Blackburn was responsible for two touchdowns and helping the Jets rack up 439 rushing yards for the night. Walker ran 13 times for 97 yards. James Clemens also passed for 103 yards.

The Jets defense held Grissom’s total yardage to only 59, which included no yards for their running game.

“I thought we played well for four quarters,” said James Clemens Coach Wade Waldrop.

The win is the fifth in a row for the Jets, who has been on a roll leading up to a Class 7A, Region 4 showdown next week against undefeated Sparkman. James Clemens will play at Sprkman on Friday at 7 p.m.

The Senators will take on Bob Jones tonight at Madison City Stadium.
