Young’s 3 TDs not enough

MARYVILLE — Devrin Young’s spectacular senior season ended with touchdown runs of 90, 80 and 12 yards for Bearden in the Class 6A state quarterfinals.

Too bad for BHS that Maryville’s offense was typically sharp, scoring seven touchdowns in a 52-20 Rebels romp to end Bearden’s season (9-4) Friday, Nov. 19, at Jim Renfro Field.

MHS moves to 12-1 and a state semifinal date with Oak Ridge.

A Christian Robinson interception, with the Bulldogs ahead 7-3 midway into the first quarter, put BHS 27 yards from a 14-3 lead.

But a dropped pass, with plenty of open room to score had it been caught, turned into a Rebels interception that changed momentum for good in the first half — and the game.

Young, a Tennessee Vols commitment who finished his career with more than 5,000 rushing yards, ended 2010 with 42 all-purpose TDs and 2,271 yards rushing.

“I’ve not seen anybody more talented than he is,” BHS head coach Brad Taylor said of Young. “A good person, great kid.”

Drew Williamson, All-District 4-AAA senior linebacker, said his four years at BHS “is the best experience I’ve had in my life.”

Peyton Landers, senior starting linebacker seemingly knocked out for the season after tearing up his knee Sept. 17 but who played the final four BHS games, said “a love for the team,” brought him back. “It’s a great team and I just want to be all in, just like our motto.”

Cory Crabtree, senior starting defensive end, said playing for the Bulldogs “changed my life completely. They made me into a better person that I am now. I really wish it wasn’t over, because these are my brothers and I’m really going to miss them.”

Senior lineman Jalyn Stewart said, “I enjoyed the four years, I love these kids. These are like my brothers, my family.”
