Gridiron Gamecocks overwhelm St. John’s 48-0

Rebuffed on two of their first three trips into the red zone, the SCHS Gamecocks scored on six of their last seven possessions, including all four in the second half Screven County overwhelmed the visiting St. John’s (S.C.) Islanders by a margin of 48-0 in the regular season opener for 2014 before a tremendous home crowd last Friday night at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
On a night where heat was the only impediment to an impressive pregame ceremony rededicating the stadium to Maj. Charles L Kelly, the swarming defense clad in Red and White may have been even more dominant than the offense.  
St. John’s never took a snap on the SCHS side of the field, picked up a mere 69 total yards, and recorded only four first downs.  
Of the St. John’s first downs, one came on a play that saw the Gamecocks recover a fumble (on the only play the Islanders crossed midfield) and the other came on the game’s final snap.
“I hope we are just that good,” SCHS head coach Ron Duncan said smiling. “I think they were a little outmanned and tired pretty quick. They did some things early that gave us a few problems. They are a tough bunch and I’m sure they will win a bunch of games.”
Offensively behind an all-senior line, the Roosters amassed 359 yards rushing on just 44 carries and finished with a total of 438 yards of offense.
Those seniors up front were tackles Chris Abraham and Jesse Shuman; guards Alasanti Mincey and Lee Hunter; and center Jordan Morrell.
In the backfield, eight different backs carried the ball led by senior Tavarious Johnson (12-127) and juniors Jeremy Hawkins (4-72), and Malik Prescott (8-63). The latter had a pair of scores each with Johnson getting one.
“I thought we ran the ball well,” added Duncan. “There are still a few things to fix in the run game.”
Also scoring were Bruce Smith and Caleb Krulic.
Jacob Smith added three PATs and a 40-yard field goal on the last play of the first half.
In his first start at the position, senior Donta Wilburn handled the quarterbacking chores with a
6-for-14 night passing for 86 yards while rushing nine times for 22. He did have a sure TD pass dropped and maybe most importantly, he did not put the ball on the ground.  
“Donta did a good job,” said Duncan. “He is still making a few first-year mistakes. He missed a few reads on the option, but I’m sure he will improve with more game reps.”
Asked to comment on the defensive effort Duncan said: “The defense played hard. Still have plenty of room to improve. But you can’t question their collective efforts. I’m proud of them, but like anybody after one game, lots to clean up.”
Leading tacklers for the defense were freshman Kim Hunter (4-1 with a forced fumble); junior Hawkins (1-10); junior Ashton Solomon (1-6); senior Terry Grace (1-5); junior Carlos Robbins (4-1); junior Eric Hayward (3-2); and junior Kevin Walker (1-4).
The game’s first possession saw Johnson pick up 16 yards and things virtually never slowed down, except when the Red and White slowed themselves down.  
A short field did not hurt either. For the night, the average starting position for SCHS was the St. John’s 38, while the Islanders average starting position was their own 20.  
In fact, only once did the visitors start beyond their own 30.
What did Duncan say when all of the talk of the game was over?
“I learned from this game that we must continue to get better,” Duncan said.
