PORT ST. JOE - Jarkeice Davis and Port St. Joe sprinted into the new football season Friday at Shark Field.

Davis, a senior fullback, rushed for 237 yards and five touchdowns – in the first half - and the Tiger Sharks cruised to a 41-7 victory over county rival Wewahitchka.

Davis finished with 248 yards and scored all six Port St. Joe touchdowns; on just 14 carries, exploiting a combination of excellent blocking up front and spotty tackling by the Gators.

Davis added two receptions for 15 yards and the Tiger Sharks finished with 462 total yards of offense.

About the only ding one could apply to the Tiger Sharks’ performance was 80 penalty yards on eight yellow flags.

“I thought the offensive line came out and played hard and did a great job opening holes,” said Port St. Joe coach John Palmer. “We didn’t execute as crisply as I would have liked, but this is the first game.

“I didn’t like the penalties and we are going to have to clean that up. We just have some things to work on.”
