Good Evening Tornado Nation and Tornado Fans everywhere, this is Mr. Friday Night David Rodgers, Voice of the Bradford Tornadoes with this week’s WEAG Eagle Country 106.3Radio Blog for 9-7-17.

Due to Hurricane Irma and its effects that it would have on the State of Florida most of the games in the State were moved up to play on Thursday Night and or early on Friday Night, so the Tornadoes wind up playing on Thursday Night and coming off a big win against the Baldwin Indians, the Tornadoes looked to scalp another team of Indians, those 2-0 Keystone Heights Indians.

This game wound up being a home game for Keystone as David Hurse Stadium was too saturated and wet to play the game on so it was decided earlier in the week that this game would be moved to Indian Field and what a game it was. The Tornadoes came in this game and showed their dominance from play one and scalped another set of Indians 33-0.

Coach Tomlinson and His Coaching Staff and the Tornadoes Football Team went back to basics, running the football to set up the pass using those 4 wideouts on certain plays to keep the Indians Defense honest, but the Tornadoes did not need to do much passing in this game as they took control of the line of scrimmage and ran the ball through the teeth of their defense and eventually wore down the undermanned Keystone Heights Team.

QB Zion Barber led an offensive unit that had a rushing attack that amassed 354 yard rushing and 33 yards passing for a Game High Total of 387 yards. The Rushing Attack was led by our 2 Running Backs JR Jeremiah Vaughan with 15 carries for 156 yards for a 10.4 yards per carry and scored 2 TD’s. SR RB Tally Chandler had 13 carries for 120 yards for a 9.2 yard per carry and scored 1 TD. SR Slotback Taro Ward had 5 Carries for 48 yards for a 9.6 yards per carry. QB Zion Barber had 5 carries for 24 yards for a 4.8 yards per carry and 1 TD. Barber also had 1 Receiving TD through the air a 19 yard TD Strike from FR Backup QB Pedro Carter. Unfortunately for Carter after that pass play on the next series he got hurt breaking his ankle on a back side tackle from the Indian Defensive End and he is out for the season. We wish you well Pedro and look forward to seeing you in the 2018 Tornado Football Season.

The Defense played lights out as we smothered the Indians Rushing attack much of what Coach Dickerson likes to do, set up the run and then hit you with the deep pass but on this night Keystone could not do much of either. Sophomore DB Nathaniel Davis, which by the way was the Beef O Brady’s Player of the Game led the defense with a team high 20 tackles, 13 assisted and 7 solo as he came up from his position and smothered runs at the line of scrimmage and in the Indian Backfield. SR LB Caleb Patray had 14 total tackles, 8 assisted and 6 solo, and SR DB Taro Ward had 10 tackles, 7 assisted and 3 solo. Also in on several plays and tackles were SR DL Gerald Smith III, SR DB Dakota Matthews, SR LB Dallin Woods, and JR DL Jacquez Moseley. The Defense also had 2 Interceptions both by Sophomore DB Nathaniel Davis. Barber also made 3 of 5 of his PAT’S to finish out all the scoring for the Tornadoes.
