Football rocks Ocoee in Kickoff Classic
8/24/2014 2:45:00 PM

While most coaches agree a preseason Kickoff Classic is not necessarily a clear indication of future performance, all will agree it gives you an extraordinary opportunity to assess talent. Friday night in the Spoone, the Panther Nation was treated to a sensational display as Dr Phillips thrashed visiting Ocoee, 37-7. In very limited action, starting quarterback Rudy Norwood threw for a touchdown and ran for another as the Panthers built a 37-0 lead before Ocoee tacked on a score on the final whistle of the third quarter.

DP got things rolling quickly on their opening drive as senior Daquan Isom broke free for an 18-yard gain and two plays later, Norwood scampered 39 yards on a quarterback keeper for a 7-0 lead after just three plays. After Jeremiah Harris blocked a punt on Ocoee's ensuing possession, Isom broke off a nine-yard run, Norwood added an 11-yard gain and capped the drive with a beautiful pass to senior wide receiver Mike Macon in the back right corner of the endzone for a 14-yard touchdown. Later in the first,  Daquan Isom sliced through the line and down the sideline for a 35-yard touchdown to make it 20-0. Isom put the Panthers in prime position again in the second quarter with a 28-yard punt return to midfield. Junior Jaquarius Bargnare followed with a 22-yard run on an end around and after a six-yard reception by Mike MaconEmare Hogan took the handoff around the left side and hit a wide open Mike Macon for a 60-yard touchdown pass to push the lead to 27-0. Bargnare capped the first half scoring barrage with a 53-yard touchdown run to make it 34-0 at the half and senior Elad Galili closed out the DP scoring with a 37-yard field goal in the third quarter. Defensively, DP registered four sacks (Gio Clavier, Jake BarnettJalean Perkins, Nick Smith) and senior safety Vernon Walker hauled in a first quarter interception.

The Panthers open up the regular season next Friday at home vs. Timber Creek.
