Jefferson 55, Lennard 13

TAMPA — Jefferson senior quarterback Deiondre Porter scored six touchdowns and amassed 369 yards of total offense as the Dragons (5-1, 4-1 Class 6A-District 8) rolled on homecoming.

Porter led a big-play barrage for Jefferson, including touchdown passes of 26, 67 and 35 yards, and 143 yards and three more TDs rushing.

Coach Jeremy Earle was determined to work on the Dragons’ passing game, and Porter threw for 221 yards on seven-of-17 throws.

“He’s a great player. A special talent,” Earle said.

Mondreas Lofton added a pair of touchdown runs for the Dragons, who remained a game back of Armwood in the 6A-8 standings.

Lennard (0-7, 0-6) fumbled on three consecutive offensive plays in the second quarter, allowing Jefferson to score 21 points in 84 seconds and lead 47-6 at the half.

Darron Daniel led the Longhorns with 106 rushing yards on 20 carries. They got two field goals from Ellis Shaw and a late touchdown from Jahryn Bailey.

Next week, Jefferson is at King, and Lennard hosts Armwood.
