Young players get experience in second half of Demons’ season
Perkins-Tryon was missing several key players Friday at Jones and it proved to be too much to overcome as the Demons lost 48-12.
The Longhorns outscored P-T 28-0 in the first quarter. Both of the Demons’ top two quarterbacks (Caleb White and Zac Bledsoe) were injured leaving freshman Dillion Longbrake behind center. Clark Crotty got the Demons on the board with an 11-yard run in the second quarter. At the end of the game, John Sasser caught a 17-yard pass from Longbrake.
Jones out-rushed Perkins-Tryon 285-112. The Demons only averaged 2.4 yards per carry. P-T ended the season with a four-game losing streak and graduate nine including running backs Devin Peyton and Tanner Bridenstine. With the injuries the Demons had in the last four games a lot of young players gained playing time.
