GMC rolls over four-year school

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Leading the receiving core was Quentin Atkinson with three receptions for 69 yards, followed Devon Williams with two receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Both Zireycus Letman and Ty Flournoy-Smith also snagged a touchdown each receiving.

“Pat [Thomas] was doing a great job running the offense and the offensive line was doing a good job adjusting,” Williams said. “The guys were doing well with the receivers running good routes and the defense held them to about 150 yards. It was just a really good total team effort.”

With the win, GMC continued to show its dominance this season, taking down strong opponents week-in and week-out.

“I think I guys are doing a pretty good job of taking care of business this year,” Williams said. “Our offense has put up some big points on teams that don’t normally get that many points scored against them. Our defense has done a good job of holding teams to under their normal amount of total offense.”

Having a large Bulldog fan base making the drive to Selma on Saturday, Williams admits it was a comforting to have so much support and pull off a big win.

“We had 70 to 100 fans that came, and that were quite loud. It was really nice to have them in the stands with us,” he said. “Our guys just continue to out-execute and out-perform. We just had a great day.”

The Bulldogs take on Lackawanna College next on Sunday  in Blacksburg, Va. for the last regular season contest of the season at 1 p.m.
