Rustburg Rolls Past Liberty as turnovers hurt the Minutemen

Liberty High School, Bedford, VA – The Red Devils blew into a packed Liberty High like a hurricane Friday night, scoring 47 points in the first quarter against a Minutemen team that’s had a hard season to say the least. Rustburg’s RB 24 Marshaun Rosser (5/54 rush yards 2TD’s) got the first score of the night, and RB 32 Marquavion Rosser (3/64 rush yards 2TD’s) followed it up after the Red Devil’s recovered an early Liberty fumble. 

Liberty’s four first-quarter turnovers played an important role in Rustburg’s TD heavy first quarter. But no one can say Liberty quit, as the Minutemen continued grinding, only turning it over one more time throughout the game. 44 TE Kadin Byers attributed the outcome to battles at the line of scrimmage, “If we don’t pick it up up front, this is going to happen every single game.”

Rustburg got to give several different players touches throughout the night and they all made their mark. All six Red Devil backs that carried the football scored, including freshmen RB 34 John Wingfield (8/51 rush yards 1TD) and WR 9 Jacob Wingfield (2/17 rush yards 1TD), who scored in the second and fourth quarter, respectively.Red Devil QB 10 Michael Knight (3/3 123 pass yards 2TD’s) put it best after the game, “We came to play, and we did what we do.” – Graham Whitaker
