Radford rolls in 55-0 win over James River on a record setting night

Norman G. Lineburg Field, Radford, VA – The Bobcats left nothing to chance on their homecoming night, scoring an unprecedented eight TD’s in the first half against James River.

“Nothing else you can ask for in a homecoming game,” OL/DL 52 Charlie Davis said after the win.
Radford’s Seniors made the most of their time on the field, but none more so than QB/DB 7 Landen Clark (2/28, 2TD’s rushing; 9/12,183, 3TD’s passing) and WR 18 Max Kanipe (5/142 rec, 3TD).

Clark and Kanipe were a perfect five for five connecting with three of them resulting in TD’s. The pair’s highlight of the game came near the beginning of the second half as Clark dropped back into the pocket and whipped a perfect 46 yard pass to Kanipe for the TD.

While the stats show 46 yards, the ball traveled 50+ yards. This night was also special for Kanipe as he broke the Radford 10 game regular season yardage record of 811 set last year by Parker Prioleau. Kanipe stands at 898 yards through seven games. Clark is also chasing his own record of 2,395 yards passing in a season set last year. He currently sets at 1,553 yards on the year.

James River did what they could against the team in black. Due to injuries, the Knights dressed only 11 players and played a number of freshman and sophomores, including QB 8 Evan Byers (4/17 rush yards, 6/17,33,INT passing) who hadn’t had a lot of snaps behind center.

That’s a tall order against anyone, much less the number two, 2A team in the state, by rating points. – Graham Whitake
