Raider boys stifle GR on hardwood
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Derrick Henry sped and stiff-armed his way to a record-tying 99-yard touchdown run and the Tennessee Titans routed the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-9 on Thursday night to stay in the playoff chase.
And that was just part of an amazing night for Henry.
Henry tied Tony Dorsett’s 99-yarder on Jan. 3, 1983, for Dallas against Minnesota for the longest TD run in NFL history. Henry ran to his left and ran up the sideline, stiff-arming first Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye, then rookie linebacker Leon Jacobs twice and finally a shove to linebacker Myles Jack to finish off the TD.
The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner, celebrated by striking the Heisman pose not once, but twice.
Henry set a franchise record with 238 yards on just 16 carries, topping the previous mark of 228 yards set by Chris Johnson in 2009 against yes, the Jaguars.
Henry finished with a career-high four TDs, tying Lorenzo White and Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell for most rushing TDs in a single game in franchise history. Henry
Cibola boys basketball made a statement Thursday at home against Gila Ridge (0-3 AIA).
The Raiders (3-0 AIA) held a high-powered offense in check to win 58-41 after a stout defensive effort.
Cibola led throughout the game and built as big as a 20-point lead at the end of three quarters at 48-28.
“We played hard, which is the total opposite of Tuesday, where we won, but we didn’t play hard,” Cibola coach Ron Bratton said. “It was good to see the kids come together. They talked on defense, shared the basketball, and they just played hard. It looked like they like each other.”
Senior guard Derek Barnes was tasked with shadowing Gila Ridge’s Jamison Kay all night, and that helped the Raiders keep Gila Ridge to only 41.
Barnes also led on offense with 10 points and three assists, junior Quannah Locklear had 11 points and senior Glenn Baxter had six points and six rebounds. Gila Ridge was led by Sam Miner with 15 points and Kay with 14 points.
