MADISONVILLE-It's good to be
King. Blake Huffman was crowned Homecoming king on Friday night, and also found time to dominate
Cumberland County, helping his Chiefs defeat the Jets, 48-0.
Huffman was the main cog in an offense that racked up 516 yards of total offense. The bruising
back hauled in 5 catches for 104 yards and a score. Two of the catches were acrobatic grabs that
brought the Sequoyah faithful to their feet.
Huffman also added a
rushing score. The Chiefs spread the ball around Huffman's dominant performance. Forrest McKane
scored on the opening drive with a 6-yard run, as the Chiefs led early 6-0.
Sequoyah made it a two-score lead when Austin Lunsford hauled in a
6-yard slant pass making it 14-0. Huffman then rattled off a 5-yard touchdown run to wind down the
first quarter. Chiefs led 21-0 after one.
Garret Dalton ran a
reverse in for a touchdown from 4 yards out. That made the score 28-0 before the half. Dalton also
had three catches for 56 yards. Just as halftime was nearing Brett King found Huffman for a 5-yard
score making the halftime mark 34-0.
After the half the Chiefs
defense really shined. Defensively Sequoyah held Cumberland County to just 98 total yards. Dustin
Webb, Caleb Minor, Ben Hall and Thomas Spradlin all had huge games. All three of those Chiefs
combined for a sack, while McKane and Mikenzy Blair added another. Matt Gletty picked off a Jordan
Buckner pass during the Jets only visit to the red zone.
were some big plays on offense in the third. Matt Gletty brought down a huge 60-yard bomb inside
the 5-yard line and King did the rest rushing 4 yards to pay dirt.
Drew Carson capped off the night with a jolt in the fourth. Carson broke
into the Jet's second level, and raced 96-yards to the end zone. Logan McDonald hit his fouth
extra point of the game, and Sequoyah enjoyed a rousing Homecoming win 48-0.
Sequoyah (4-1, 1-0) hosts McMinn Central in two weeks.
