Records fall at Smith

Smith Middle School quarterback Alex Stough passed for more than 200 yards in his last game as a Cyclone and ended the year with 1,315 yards of total offense, more of than 1,000 passing, throwing 12 touchdown passes against just three interceptions.

Stough had a “great supporting cast,” noted Smith coach John French. Tight end Bradley Kenyon finished the season with 429 yards receiving, and Chris Garland had 1,161 all-purpose yards 518 of those yards can from receptions. Garland had 336 all-purpose yards in the last game alone.

Thomas Moore

Former East Chapel Hill all-conference kicker Thomas Moore played his part on a record-setting Saturday for North Carolina's football team. Moore kicked eight PAT conversions in Carolina's win over Old Dominion and added a 38-yard field goal in the third quarter.

Carolina's 80-20 victory accounted for the most points ever scored in a game by the Tar Heels, and all the scoring came in the first three quarters. Carolina pulled its starters and stayed with runs between the tackles for most of a scoreless fourth quarter, but still got within two points of tying the ACC record for points in a game, surpassed only by Clemson's 82 in a 1981 win against Wake Forest.


“It is always hard to beat a team twice. Orange is a great team and they’re going to be ready to play us. So we’ve got to make sure we come out ready for them. This is another Big-8 Championship game all over again.”

Adrian Jones, Head Coach, Southern Durham
