Ads welcome BHS after easy victory

MARYVILLE — Braden Urevick's nose for turnovers and two Jacob Johnson scoring runs set the tone quickly for an Admirals blowout at Heritage.

Farragut pulled its record even at 3-3 overall, 2-1 in District 4-AAA, after scoring 28 points in less than six minutes — needing just 54 seconds of possession time — without starting a drive in Mountaineers territory.

The end result was a 38-14 thrashing of HHS at Jack Renfro Stadium Friday evening, Oct. 1.

Next up is Bearden Week, as the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1) visit FHS's Bill Clabo Field for 7:30 p.m. opening kickoff Friday, Oct. 8.

Urevick, a junior defensive back/receiver, recovered a fumble and raced 10 yards before Johnson rushed 16 yards to paydirt thanks, in part, to nice blocking from linemen Brett Dockery, Miguel Aranda and Paddy Doucette.

Next for Urevick was a leaping interception and six-yard return to the HHS 31. “Coach Carson, our defensive backs coach, prepared us extremely well all week starting from Sunday,” said Urevick, who also added a 31-yard TD run.

Johnson had a big hole up the middle, and with some quick moves sprinted 26 yards to make it 14-0 less than two minutes into the game.

Ads kicker Jonathan King eventually went 5-of-5 on extra points, added a short field goal and placed three kickoffs into the end zone.

FHS senior linebacker Brooks Harper and defensive ends Caleb Whitney and Robert Wrinkle kept the Mountaineers in check while Jackson Fain's kickoff tackle at the HHS set up Farragut for seven more quick points. Robbie Leonard and Zack Hannay were among FHS defenders also contributing minus-yardage and short-yardage stops.

Wrinkle said, “In the beginning we were good, but over the weeks we've been working on new stuff, and we're progressing.

Whitney said the defense “has grown a lot, linebackers are starting to come harder on blitzes. The d-line is starting to step in their gaps and make plays. Cornerbacks are stepping it up, getting picks, batting down passes.”

At linebacker, “Brooks has done real well,” FHS head coach Eddie Courtney said. “And in the first half, [quarterback] Cody [Rule] was doing what we had to do for our offense. And our offensive line has certainly made a lot of improvement.”

Montre Hudson broke a tackle near the line of scrimmage and raced 43 yards for six more and a 21-0 lead.

After Bao Nguyen partially blocked a punt, Farragut made it 28-0 on Urevick’s TD run.

Johnson added a 49-yard touchdown run midway into the second quarter for a 35-0 lead.

Heritage falls to 3-4, 0-4.

Ben Colwell stood out in the third quarter. The FHS senior went high for an interception, returning it 18 yards, picked off another pass and returned it 26 yards late in the third quarter and opened the second half with a 32-yard kickoff return.

Hudson reeled off a 28-yard run late in the third quarter.. King passed to Madison Brown for 19 yards. Farragut back-up quarterback Sheldon Grieco added runs of 12 and nine-yards. Caleb Walker reeled off a 10-yard run.


Ryan Shoup, FHS running backs coach/special teams coordinator, remains in intensive care at Mercy West Hospital suffering from various internal complications the cause of which, as of Tuesday, had yet to be pinpointed according to Courtney.

Though Shoup has “a lot of pain in his abdomen area, chest area,” Courtney added the coach “is showing signs of recovery.”

Entering his eighth year at FHS under Courtney, Shoup “got sick at school sometime during mid-September. He's a diabetic, too.”
