FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Regents Wins 8th Straight District Title

The Regents Knights varsity football team secured it’s 8th straight District Championship by defeating San Antonio TMI last Friday night 45-7.  It was Regents’ 17th title out of 22 years of playing varsity football.

Defense and Special Teams dictated play on Friday as the Knights held the Panthers to just 130 yards of offense and a late 4th quarter score.  The Regents Defensive unit gave its Offense positive field position all night long and the Offense took advantage, scoring on 5 of 6 first half possessions.  Regents’ Special Teams lit up the scoreboard to open the game on a 48-yard punt return for a touchdown by Regents Senior Jackson Smith.  This was Regents’ third punt return for a touchdown this year.  The Knight’s kickoff coverage unit pinned TMI deep in its own territory most of the night.

On the season, Regents’ offense is averaging 46 points per game.  Quarterback Quinn Murphy has connected on 64% of his throws for 1,722 yards and 23 touchdowns with only 3 interceptions.  The rushing attack which is averaging 150 yards and 3 touchdowns per game is led by Junior Chili Sayre and Sophomore Jack Buerkle.  Seniors Jackson Smith and Tyler Kuo lead the Receiving Corp with over 900 yards and 16 touchdown receptions between them.

Regents’ defense, led by Senior Linebacker Ledger Rice and Junior Linebacker Jacob Wilburn, is only giving up 9 points per game, including 3 shutouts on the season.  Senior Defensive End Whitefield Powell, a Colorado State commit, leads the team in sacks (7) and tackles for loss (12).

Regents closes out the regular season Friday night, November 4 at 7:30pm when they travel down Southwest Parkway to face St. Michaels.
