Dwayne Boone ate up Memorial, recording several tackles. Wall gives all the praise to the defense.
“They get all the credit in the world. When they are making guys go three and out, it makes it easy to call plays. They are fun to watch,” the Trojan coach said.
Deariso said defensive coordinator Dwight Danuser has made great adjustments this season, putting the Trojans in the best position to succeed.
“The defense is completely different under coach Danuser. We stuck to a basic 5-2 last year,” Deariso said. “This year we are switching it up for whoever we play to meet the need.”
Deariso plays the defensive quarterback role each week. The senior checks the group into the proper formations.
JMA played ball control the entire second half, giving the reserves some playoff experience.
Morgan had 21 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns. Attaway was 5-for-8 passing for 129 yards and two scores. The quarterback also rushed for 54 yards.
Pittman had three rushes for 52 yards and two catches for 45 yards with two touchdowns. Sealey plugged in two catches for 68 yards and a touchdown.
Deariso said he is looking forward to a hard-hitting game against Valwood in next week's powerhouse playoff battle.
“They are the No. 1 team in the state. Hopefully, we can give them a game,” Wall said with a sly smile.
