Big Block for White; Selby Knocks Down PAT as Commanders Win


Goodbread, Chase, The Florida Times Union


Byline: CHASE GOODBREAD

Stephen Selby spent the night getting picked on by a wide receiver who was 9 inches taller than he was.

But with the game on the line, none stood taller than Selby.

White High's 5-foot-6 cornerback blocked an extra-point attempt with 3:45 remaining, opening the door for a game-winning 65-yard drive by the Commanders and providing the difference in a 34-33 win over visiting Raines.

Vikings receiver Sam Norris, at 6-2, caught five passes for three touchdowns and 136 yards, much of it over Selby on fade patterns that gave the diminutive senior little chance to make a play.

"I just had to keep fighting," Selby said. "I knew I had to do something to help us, and the extra point was my chance."

Raines overcame a 27-7 deficit to lead 33-27 in the final minutes, but Selby came around the end unblocked on the extra-point try.

"That opened the door," said Commanders coach Terry Gilliam. "And I told the kids, we just had to go through it now."

White quarterback Aaron Seigler threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Antwan Randall with 20 seconds remaining and the Commanders out of timeouts. Carlos Garcia's extra point was good, but Raines was not finished. Quarterback Kevin Hutchings found Jordan Williams for 32 yards to set up a final play. With four seconds left, he found Reshawn Brown for 33 yards, but Patrick Nixon corralled Brown on White 10-yard line as time expired.

White's Eric Baker rushed 23 times for 181 yards, providing the bulk of the Commanders' offense as they raced to a 20-point lead.

"A lot of young guys did a lot of growing up tonight," said Raines coach Cedric Thornton.
