Graceville makes it three shutouts in a row

Mark Skinner | TIMES - The Tigers Charlie Nichols leaps into the air for an interception Friday night against Bozeman.

The Graceville Tigers football team is shining this year with a 4-0 record after last Friday’s 36-0 shutout of the Bozeman Bucks. The home crowd had something to cheer about from the opening kickoff.
The Graceville offense was clicking on all eight cylinders and the defense did their job and then some for the third week in a row, recording another shut out.
Jeremiah Castro continued his onslaught on the record books with two touchdowns on 16 carries for 168 yards. Xavian Sorey had nine carries for 138 yards, one touchdown and added a pick six to his stats. Aeneas Myrick rushed for 100 yards on eight carries and added a pair of two-point conversions. Damon Robinson had a pick six on the night.
Charlie Nichols and Jarrel Carpenter both recorded seven solo tackles. Nichols added a bonus of an interception that thwarted a Bucks drive and preserved the shutout.
The Tigers will travel into Shark territory this Friday night as they take on the Port St. Joe Sharks who come into the game with a 2-3 record overall and 2-0 in district. PSJ has been inconsistent this year with an opening 21-7 win over Liberty County before traveling to Marianna to take a 21-0 loss. They dealt Franklin County a 42-6 loss before suffering a 27-13 loss to South Walton and last week’s 29-20 loss to Rutherford. Coach Barry Gardner has had his team watching film and readying themselves on the practice field in hopes of going 5-0 on the season.
