BAKER, La. — In a span of 12 seconds, Trinity Episcopal sophomore quarterback/free safety Kevontaye Caston accounted for two touchdowns as the Saints rallied to defeat the Central Private School Rebels 20-7 Friday night, giving Zach Rogel his first win as head coach.

Trinity Episcopal was trailing Central Private 7-0 with time running out in the first half. That’s when Caston took over. First, he threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to David Jackson with 1:24 to go until halftime.

Just 12 seconds later, Caston picked off a pass and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown to give the Saints a 12-0 lead at the break.

“I thought he conducted the offense well. He had some big runs. Completed short passes when he needed to. He made smart decisions. He really was a good game manager,” Rogel said. “Defensively, he had a couple of interceptions.”

Despite being outgained 216 yards to 196 by Central Private, Rogel said the Saints played a complete game in all three units, and they played hard for four quarters.

He said that as a unit, the offensive line had its best game of the season and deserves a lot of credit. Trinity’s defense forced four turnovers.

David Jackson was credited with a safety late in the third quarter and Cade Wells had a 12-yard touchdown run with 1:39 left in the game. Caston was just 5-for-21 passing for 58 yards and one interception, but he added 61 yards rushing on 11 carries. Wells finished with three carries for 54 yards and had two catches for 43 yards.

Trinity Episcopal (1-2) will be on the road at 7 p.m. Friday when it begins MAIS District 4-A against Porter’s Chapel Academy.
