ACCS Rebels rout CHEF 53-8 giving young players game time
NATCHEZ — Adams County Christian School football fans caught a glimpse of the future of Rebel football during ACCS’s 53-8 rout of the CHEF Patriots on Thursday night at Bobby Marks Stadium.
With the game safely under control by the middle of the second quarter, ACCS used the opportunity to give the second and third teams game experience.
“The CHEF players gave their heart and soul on the field, but they were just outmanned tonight,” ACCS head coach David King said. “We did the best to keep it close.”
After leading the game 19-0 at the end of the first quarter, ACCS scored 34 more points in the second half for a 53-0 halftime lead.
King said he tries not to run scores into the 50s and makes sure his players keep the game classy.
King said the situation allowed him to play nearly every player on the team.
“I am glad that we came away with no injuries and got our young guys some playing time,” King said.
One of the highlights of the evening came from third string quarterback Tripp Cotten who ran the ball three times for 54 yards.
“Our young guys performed well,” King said. “We are going to have some good ball players in a few years.”
The Rebels scored eight times in the first half.
Jakarius Caston started the game off with an 80 yard punt return with 9:31 left in the first quarter.
Senior quarterback Sterling Yarbrough added three touchdown passes — one a 40 yard pass to Caston in the second quarter.
Kemari Clark and D.J. Stampley both had interceptions for touchdowns in the second quarter.
Corey Sewell and Paul Cupstid also contributed with rushing touchdowns.
In all the Rebels had 369 yards total offense to CHEF’s 46 yards.
On defense, V.J. Knight and Jason Martin had 4 tackles each.
Next week ACCS will host Columbia Academy. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Bobby Marks Stadium.
