STJ Football Looks To Go 2-0

Posted: Updated:


The first St. Joe football game under new head coach Bryan Jones was a huge success.
The Flyers raced out to a 52--0 lead over Bloomington last Friday night, on the way to a 59-12 win. Jacob Bordovsky ran for two touchdowns, passed for another two scores.  Peyton Terrell and Jaren Wilson ran for two TD's apiece. I asked coach Jones what pleased him the most about their offense in their opening night lopsided win. "Our offensive line play. They did a good job of picking up their blitz because they blitz often. They did a great job of getting where they were supposed to be and giving us time to execute on the perimeter like we wanted to."
St. Joe football's first road game of the season comes this Friday night at Shiner St. Paul.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee center Brandon Kennedy will miss the remainder of the season after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament in practice.
 


METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have waived rookie running back Boston Scott and signed offensive lineman Michael Ola.
    
The move, posted on the NFL's transaction report Wednesday, came as starting left guard Andrus Peat sat out practice and was listed with a quadriceps injury on the club's first injury report of Week 1.
    
The decision to waive Scott left the Saints with only two running backs on the roster heading into Sunday's regular season opener at home against Tampa Bay, although New Orleans still had a few days to do more roster shuffling.
    
During the preseason, Scott, a sixth-round draft pick out of Louisiana Tech, averaged 4.8 yards on 25 carries and scored a touchdown. He also returned seven kickoffs for 188 yards and one punt for 13 yards.
