The Bison football team soundly defeated the Vikings of Akron North, 38-0 playing Friday night on home turf.

Sophomore running back Kendyn Wiggins led the way with a dynamic performance: 124 rushing yards on 14 carries and a whopping four touchdowns.

Wiggins deployed spin moves to fake out the defenders and juke moves to dodge Viking tackles.

“Right now, I feel great, I’m trying to get better every day on the practice field,” Wiggins said. “The key is working hard even when no one looking, and taking this game seriously.”

Although the Bison were not able to produce a substantial number of points early on, as the game moved on they sped up on both sides of the ball, but principally defensively.

“There was a lot of inexperience out there tonight, but we are going to keep improving and becoming faster and stronger on a day to day basis,” Coach Damion Creel said.

Junior Linebacker Dawann Gray Jr. produced a safety early on. That set the tone for the defense to strive for the remainder of the game.

Junior Quarterback Jeshawn Minter threw 7-of-12 passing for 60 yards and Sophomore Defensive End Jasir Holmes, went down with a broken left wrist.

The Bison play Collinwood this Friday at home. The Railroaders are coming off a loss to Wickliffe.
