Young’s 285 a record

Devrin Young decided to break a school record for rushing yardage last week with his 11 carries for 285 yards and five touchdowns — all but 17 yards in the first half.

But linebacker/receiver Drew Williamson also stood out for Bearden with bone-crunching hits as leading tackler, a 65-yard TD catch and a fumble recovery.

Young and Williamson — plus several other key contributors — led the Bulldogs to a second straight rout: a 49-14 home win against Jefferson County Friday night, Aug. 27, at Bearden’s Bill Young Field.

“Devrin never ceases to amaze,” said BHS senior quarterback Kyle Riemer, who finished 8-of-13 passing for 139 yards and one touchdown.

While the Bulldogs improve to 2-0, Jefferson County falls to 0-2.

Bearden head coach Brad Taylor said, “Obviously, Devrin had another great night.”

At linebacker, Williamson said, “Our coach [Chuck Rouse] says every year he wants eight or 10 guys he can trust to put in the game and not feel like we’re missing a beat. We have that.”

Taylor said BHS “improved on our defensive line,” singling out defensive ends Cory Crabtree, Kasey Tyler and Taylor Keen plus defensive tackles including Chris Jackson, “who’s probably been in there the most consistently.”

Taylor also pointed to improvement from defensive tackles Zack Wells and Ryan Cantley.

Other key Bulldog contributors included Jerron Brown’s punishing hit to cause a fumble; Josh Haney’s 10-yard TD run; Samuel Manual’s 20-yard catch to set up a score; Stefon Stephens’ lunging fingertip interception of a long pass to set up a score, and Tyler Callaway’s 22-yard catch.
