[By Larry Krantz, Special to ETSN.fm]
JACKSONVILLE -- The second-ranked Gilmer Buckeyes scored on nine straight possessions and rang up 477 total yards Friday night to hand the Jacksonville Indians their third straight loss, 60-20, in non-district action at the Tomato Bowl.
Buckeyes quarterback Tanner Barr completed 14-of-18 passes for 268 yards and four touchdowns, including two touchdowns to Desmond Pollard as part of a 103-yard night.
Jaidon Parrish added another six receptions for 105 yards and a second-quarter touchdown. The touchdown, which came on a 20-yard catch-and-run, capped a 12-play, 95-yard drive that ate 3:31 off the game clock, which marked by far the longest Buckeyes drive of the night.
Gilmer (3-0) needed only 27 total plays to score the other eight touchdowns.
Running back Demarco Boyd scored a 62-yard touchdown on his only carry of the night and Barr, Devondrick Dixon, Kris Boyd and Jamel Jackson each scored rushing touchdowns as Gilmer racked up 208 yards on the ground.
Each team scored twice in the second half under a continuous clock.
Jacksonville (0-3) quarterback Carter McCown completed 14-of-28 passes for a 154 yards and a touchdown, his lowest regular-season total for yardage in a game he started and finished.
McCown threw for 46 total yards against John Tyler last season before leaving with an injury.
Indians receiver Claude Franklin caught four passes for 72 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown in the second half.
Jacksonville scored the game's opening touchdown when Trent Sansom capped a three-play, 56-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run.
Gilmer continues its season next Friday when it hosts Daingerfield, while Jacksonville looks to crack the win column for the first time when the Indians travel to Henderson next Friday night.
