Season within season begins Friday for Tiger Sharks

“You never know how your season is going to start and how it is going to go, but this is where we wanted to be,” said Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon. “We have to take of West Gadsden. We win and we are in.

“We are focused on West Gadsden. We can not look ahead. We have to take care of things Friday night.”

West Gadsden, Gannon said, will provide a similar look as the FAMU squad Port St. Joe beat 21-12 last Thursday in Tallahassee.

Behind Dwayne Griggs, who rushed 10 times for 135 yards, the Tiger Sharks pounded out 317 yards rushing. Cole Cryderman added 78 yards, Aaron Paul 45 and Jak Riley 32 as Port St. Joe averaged over 10 yards a carry.

Paul scored from 22 yards and Griggs from 64 sandwiched around an 18-yard pass from quarterback Drew Lacour to Griggs as Port St. Joe put up all its points in the opening half.

Lacour converted all three extra-point kicks.

FAMU added a touchdown, failing on the extra point, just before halftime and did the same early in the fourth quarter.
