GMC rolls over four-year school

MILLEDGEVILLE — Adding to an already impressive record this season, Georgia Military College pounced on Concordia College Saturday in Selma, Ala. to score a dominating 52-10 win over the Hornets.

Despite some questionable officiating in the contest, head coach Bert Williams was pleased with the way the Bulldogs remained focused and poised throughout the ballgame to earn the program’s first win over a four-year school.

“We traveled well and the guys were focused,” Williams said. “We prepared the guys well and prepared them for questionable officiating, which helped out our guys.”

GMC’s defense played exceptionally well against Concordia, giving up only 152 yards of offense on the day.

Chris Duffy had his best performance all season leading the Bulldogs with four tackles, two pass break-ups and one sack, as well as two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

Jaden Lee also stepped up for the team with eight tackles, followed by Jakevin Jackson who had five tackles and an interception.

Both Blake Robbins and Jamarlo Alford snagged the team’s last two sacks, while Buddy Byers and Jeremy Boykins added an interception each in the game.

“Chris [Duffy] has played well all year, but he just got out there and took center stage,” Williams said. “We also had some other guys jump out there. Blake Robbins, he’s given us some good reps, but he jumped out there and took center stage as well.”

The Bulldogs’ offense did not disappoint either, with 610 yards of total offense against the Hornets.

“I’m just very pleased with the guys going out there playing hard,” Williams said.

Jevons Robinson continued to put up big numbers with 21 carries for 221 yards and three trips to the end zone, while Akeem Judd carried the ball 10 times in the game for 96 yards rushing.

Also having another strong performance was quarterback Pat Thomas, who went 7-for-9 passing and threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns.
