W.C. Hawkins was the the sight of the C team’s most lopsided victory of the season. The young Jackets moved to 4-0 on the campaign with an outstanding all around effort.
The Jackets wasted no time getting started as QB AJ Brand scampered in from 20 yards out to take an early TD lead. The stifling Irmo defense led by the rock solid Xavier Montgomery and Zade White gave Pine Ridge all they could handle. Sack after sack, mistake after mistake, Irmo smothered the visitors to an eventual running clock situation.
The Jackets scored on every drive of the day. AJ Brand would throw 4 more touchdowns on the afternoon with 3 of them going to big play reciever Telvin Smith. Smith is quickly becoming one of the top pass catchers in IMS history , while his battery mate Brand is shattering records for TD passes and QB rating. Brand’s 4th TD pass went to the steady and reliable Caleb Alexander who finished with 4 catches on the day. Other players with receptions included Connor Essiq, Isaiah Mclary, and Kai Fennell.
The super hot Jackets are off next week but look to continue the wave the following week against an undefeated Chapin Eagle team. Coach Davis and staff have marked this game as a very important one for the program. #GoIRMO
