Ridgeview’s B3 offense erupts for 31 points

Posted

The highly-anticipated Ridgeview High B3 offensive attack; spurned by Miles Burris at wide out, Chris Baptiste at wide out and X-back and Sheppard Bridges at tailback, blasted to a 31-7 first half lead against Fort White in their Monday night spring football game.

“We like our offensive weapons,” said Ridgeview coach Bryan Arnette, who saw his second offensive snap go for an 80 yard touchdown sprint by quarterback Durrionte “Bo” Myrick who sent everyone Jet Sweeping left and deftly bootlegged right and caught an escort with Burris down the Ridgeview sideline “quarantined” as Mick Hubert might say to paydirt untouched by even 10 yards. “We clean up the penalties (ton of illegal procedures, holding and illegal formations), we will be okay. It’s a spring game.”

Myrick, who adds his immense athletic speed and ankle-breaking ability from the pocket, seemed to be able to pick his targets at will and found Burris for a 58 yarder down the sideline to the Fort White five that ended with Burris diving in the end zone for a score. Myrick then found another big weapon beyond the massive girth of Bridges who rumbled through his tackles for gains all night to set up a bonecrushing pass catch by J.J. Moore that put six Fort White tacklers in NANA land en route to a 30 yard score.

On the defense, Chris Baptiste, after some effective quick slant shots, zipped a pass interception late in the first half that, had the sideline been six inches to his left, would have been a well-timed pick six.

Tackling wise, middle linebacker Hunter Creech was a plug up the middle with Moore one wingman and Seth McCormick and James Laycock manning the edges at defensive end.

Speedster Nappolean Cion offered tight coverage on multiple attempts of vertical passes as Fort White was disrespectful of his track speed.

Cion also looked a bit Stanley Dye-ish sticking his nose in on some hard tackles at the point of attack.

Kicker Kaleb Robison was perfect on four PATs, had 40-ish punts and landed most kickoffs inside the 10 yard line with both teams agreeing to no kick coverage.
