Baker County quarterback Jacob Scott and wide receiver Michael Boone hooked up for a 68-yard touchdown on the second play from scrimmage, and the Wildcats never looked back in handing the Bradford High School football team a 43-6 loss on Sept. 6 in Macclenny.

Scott, who would later throw another 68-yard touchdown pass to Boone, threw four touchdowns in all as the Wildcats rolled up approximately 370 yards. Four of Baker’s touchdowns covered 21 yards or more.

Bradford quarterback Jacob Luke was sacked eight times as Bradford finished with 3 yards rushing. Luke completed nine passes for 117 yards, but was intercepted three times.

Wide receiver Kenny Dinkins caught three passes for Bradford for 47 yards.

Bradford head coach Steve Reynolds said his players need to do a better job of executing their assignments and avoiding mistakes.

“We’ve got to do a better job as coaches of getting our kids ready and understanding how big a mistake can be,” Reynolds said.
