Jacksonville | Red Devils get work in Red-White scrimmage

Jacksonville High School put together their annual Red-White scrimmage and celebration Saturday night at Jan Crow Stadium.

The evening began with the youngest Red Devils scrimmaging, and ended with the varsity Red Devils taking the field.

Nothing was out of the ordinary as the first team offense looked good against the second team defense, while the first defense held down the second offense.

Jacob Price led the first offense on their first drive of the game, as they drove 70 yards on nine plays and scored on a nine-yard pass from Price to Eskridge.

Running backs Lamont Gause and Malcolm Crudup did much of the damage leading up to the score. Crudup had an 18-yard yard on the first play of the night, while Gause later converted a third down with a 25-yard scamper, showing off his quickness along the way.

Price threw his touchdown pass on first-and-goal from the nine.

After the first defense shut down the second offense on three plays, Brandon Hickingbotham came in for the next drive.

Hickingbotham completed a five-yard pass to James Davis on the first play, then found Nate Robbins for a 60-yard gain down the five-yard-line. Tresean Lambert ran it in from there for another touchdown.

The Jacksonville Red Devil freshman team had a big challenge before the varsity game, as they took on the sophomores in a 30-minute scrimmage.

The sophomores won that scrimmage 21-0 with quarterback Rowdy Weathers and backs Quinlan Britt and Jakyree Wynne doing almost all of the damage. Three straight passes to Britt helped set up Britt for a four-yard touchdown run to start the night.

Wynne had a 35-yard touchdown run on the next possession, then Britt had an interception return for a touchdown to end the scrimmage.
