Montevallo Scores 9 TDs and Seven 2-Point Conversions to Beat Jemison 68-40

Scoring Explosion Captures AHSAA Offensive Spotlight

MONTGOMERY – Montevallo High School’s high-powered offense clicked on all cylinders in last week’s 68-40 victory over Jemison at Theron Fisher Stadium. The Bulldogs of Coach Brandon Wilcox scored nine touchdowns on drives that totaled just 22 plays – the longest taking five plays to reach the end zone. The icing came after the scores as Montevallo tied a state-record with seven two-point conversions.
     And Wilcox’s team did it with senior all-state receiver J.J. Evans out of the lineup nursing an injury. The explosive effort put Montevallo in the AHSAA Offensive Spotlight this week as the prep football season moves to week four.
     “It was pretty amazing,” said Wilcox. “Everything seemed to be working for us offensively.”
     Senior quarterback Malik Inabinette was 15-of-18 passing for 366 yards and five touchdowns and scored a sixth touchdown on a 13-yard run for the Class 4 Bulldogs (3-1). Six of the touchdowns came on plays of 43 yards or longer. The nine scoring drives averaged just 2.4 players per series.
    Receiver Jamarius Carter caught five passes for 121 yards and touchdowns of 43 and 64 yards. Kial Cottingham grabbed five receptions for 103 yards with an 18-yard TD catch. Kam’Ron Goins had four catches for 97 yards with a 47-yard TD reception. Deon Gilliland had a 45-yard TD pass on the first play of the game, and Joseph Anderson rushed 13 times for 132 yards and three touchdowns covering 16, 14 and 40 yards. His 60-yard run set up his first score, which came one play later.
    The two-point conversions, which Wilcox said came on a variety of plays which his team runs in their normal offense, were scored by four different players. Gilliland and Anderson ran for two each, and Inabinette threw passes to Carter and Goins for the other three. Carter caught two and Goins had one. Gilliland scored 15 two-point conversions in 2018.
     As for the state record, Class 1A Berry High School had seven in a 68-0 win over Brilliant in 2015. Quarterback James Raines completed passes for all seven. He finished the season with 33 – 30 passing and three running. He finished his career passing and runner for 61 successful two-pointers.
      W.S. Neal of East Brewton scored 41 in the 2012 season to set the AHSAA team season record for two-point conversions.
       The 108 points scored by Montevallo and Jemison is the second most scored this season and the eighth game in 2019 that has generated 100 or more points by both teams. The Bulldogs play American Christian this week in a rematch of a game won by the Patriots 70-54 – a total of 124 points which was tops in the AHSAA in 2018.
      Montevallo’s scoring machine edged out a 27-15 victory by Piedmont over Randolph County for the Offensive Spotlight. Quarterback Jack Hayes co
mpleted 15-of-35 pass attempts for 226 yards and four touchdowns as the Bulldogs downed Class 3A, Region 6 rival Randolph County – a victory which turned out to be the 150th for head coach Steve Smith at Piedmont. Hayes’ chief target was Ethan Swinford, who had eight catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns.
     Smith, who is 150-28 and is currently in his 14th season, also coached 11 years at Cedar Bluff and owns a 235-73 overall head-coaching record in the AHSAA.
