“We dominated in pretty much every offensive set we ran,” Warriors head coach Bryan Horton said. “Isaiah continues to play well out of the spread, and out of tight formations Levi Knowles (200 yards, 5 TDs) ran well behind great blocking.

“Sammy Brazeal also added four touchdowns and ran in a bunch of (one-point) conversions. Daniel Timmons also had an outstanding game from the ‘C’ position.”

Horton was also pleased with the Warriors’ defense. Knowles and Isaiah Brazeal each recorded six sacks.

“We faced a lot of spread sets and defended them better than we have all year,” Horton said. “Levi and Isaiah were a force.

“This was exactly the game the guys needed to play.”
