Glenvar Rolls through Senior Night in 52-7 win over James River

Glenvar High School, Roanoke County, VA – Glenvar showed up hungry on their Senior Night looking to avenge their loss last week against Alleghany.

The Highlanders and their Seniors didn’t let the home crowd down, putting up seven touchdowns and on field goal. Senior 22 RB Shane Gibson (5/59,TD rushing; 2/14 receiving) led his class, putting up two TD’s in 15 seconds. Gibson muscled in for a 1 yard TD and recovered a bobbled JR snap in the end zone on James River’s next offensive play.

Sophomore QB 15 Brody Dawyot (5/30 rush yards,TD, 8/12,118,2TDs passing) connected with Senior WR 7 Reed Hutchison (5/7 receiving 87yds 2TDs) for two scores. One touchdown toss, Dawyot threaded a perfect 28 yard pass, and Hutchison dodged his way to the ‘house’ on the other. “We lost two out of the last three, so to come back and play solid for four quarters… I’m proud of our kids for coming out and executing,“ Glenvar’s head coach Clifford said after the game.

James River had their moments too. Sophomore QB 8 Evan Byers (5/21 rush yards, 4/7 98 pass yards 1TD) launched a bomb to Senior WR 3 Trey Taylor (2/101 rec, TD) who muscled his way into the end zone in the fourth quarter. On the only turnover of the night, RB/LB 24 Nathan Stewart recovered a punt that hit a Highlander. James River has been hurt by injuries to key players all year long. That after going 3-0 to start the season. Next week Glenvar will travel to Floyd County to take on the Buffaloes, while James River will be back home to take on Alleghany. – Graham Whitaker
