Aiden Mihill

Yes, you did read the headline correctly: Lassiter High School scored 64 points. In football. Get your gasps out now. Lassiter’s last game with over 60 points was vs Cherokee, on October 7, 2011. The Trojans won that game 63-13. The first game with more than 64 was in state playoffs, when they beat South Gwinnett HS 70-49 on November 20, 2009. The exceptionally deep running game paced the offense, led primarily by senior RB Sam Gadsden’s 17 carries for 170 yards and 2 scores, and bolstered by sophomore RB Sabien Thigpen (7 carries, 37 yards) and the QB room of Georgia State commit Bryson Harrison (7 carries, 53 yards) and sophomore Levi Mundt (4 carries, 46 yards and a touchdown). The offensive line put in arguably the most exceptional performance of the night, controlling the line of scrimmage from start to finish.

Jaheem Murray, two-way player for the Trojans, was celebrating his birthday on Friday, and made sure it was a special one. He rushed 4 times for 18 yards and a touchdown, and in what HC Sean Thom called “one of the best high school football plays you’re ever gonna see,” blocked a punt and then took out the punter to allow linebacker Evan Scherer the opportunity to pick up the loose football for a touchdown.

Lassiter’s passing offense wasn’t far behind the running attack, as Bryson Harrison and Levi Mundt combined to complete 13 of 15 attempts for 176 yards and 2 touchdowns, one to Shaw Mixon on a 34-yard bomb and another on a screen to Rickardo Jackson. The Trojans, now 2-1 on the year, return home to take on Dalton and the 1-2 Catamounts at the Frank. The theme for fans is 70s, so make sure to show up in your finest disco-ready attire. As for Woodstock, now 0-4 on the year, they move on to River Ridge to open up region play.
