Fort Worth Southwest’s football players must have had homework to take care of Thursday night or perhaps just places to be and people to see.
Whatever the case, the Raiders got straight to work in its hurry-up formations and overwhelmed Fort Worth Trimble Tech by scoring on seven of their first eight possessions, including two touchdowns in 57 seconds of the first quarter, in a 72-14 rout of the Bulldogs in a District 7-4A game at Farrington Field.
Devin Williams threw six touchdown passes, including four over 50 yards, on 12-of-17 passing and 319 yards for Southwest (5-1, 3-0 in district).
The sophomore threw to Demarcus Wilson and Isaiah Holmes on plays of 50 and 51 yards to open the game and found Kameron Taylor on two others in the first half, among them a 53-yarder that capped a dominating first half .
“He’s very poised,” coach Lanny Trammell said of Williams. “He takes control of the offense; he’s the leader. Seniors look up to him.”
Jameion Williams, who had TD runs of 14 and 12 yards in the first half, ran for 126 yards on 15 carries.
Daylon Tarkington had a touchdown and rushed for 111 yards for the Bulldogs (2-4, 1-2).
