Union County’s Antwan Durn breaks C.J. Spiller record as Tigers rout Interlachen Rams, 59-0
BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN
Being a young team, the Interlachen Rams didn’t put up much of a fight against the Tigers, who shut them out, 59-0, but Antwan Durn did. The running back broke C.J. Spiller’s record for number of touchdowns scored in a single game, with seven.
The one that put him in the history books was 74-yarder down the field after working his way out of a tackle or two about halfway to the goal line. He’s now in good company with the Spiller, the famous running back who continues to have a successful career in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills. Just this week, the NFL and Bills announced that “Spiller was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his dynamic efforts in Week 2. This is Spiller’s second special teams player of the week award — he last won the award in Week 3 of the 2010 season.”
The Tigers continued their strong playing this season, and Interlachen made mistakes and little progress throughout the night, though they did gain a few first downs. Union County’s defense shut down what gains they did make and the offense put up 39 points in the first half, scoring 26 points in the first quarter alone. Mercifully for all involved, the officials let the clock run the second half.
While it was a big, though unexciting night for Union County, it proved to be the biggest night ever for Durn, who was all smiles.
Next week however will be a different story for everyone. Head coach Ronny Pruitt warned his team that, from what he’s heard and seen, they’re “fixin’ to get into the fire, and it’s going to start next week” against Hamilton County, whom the Tigers host on Sept. 26. Sounds like big nights and big wins are about to come to an end.
