Williamsburg captures program's 400th win by defeating Campbellsville

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sport Editor

WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Yellow Jacket football team celebrated the program’s 400th win in fine fashion by defeating district rival Campbellsville with ease, 48-0.

Many former Yellow Jacket football players and alumni were in attendance to watch the victory, as Williamsburg improved to 6-1 overall and 1-0 in district play.

“It’s great to get the 400th win,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron said. “You know it’s really special because for the first time it ties all of the generations together and we were all part of this.

“Players from the 40s, 50s, 60s up until now, we all can say we were all a part of this,” he added. “This win gives us all a lot of memories.”

Herron said he was worried coming into the game with the pressure of his team getting the 400th win, but the Yellow Jackets took control of the game early and erased a lot of their coaches’ concerns.

“We got after them and played well,” Herron said. “We were able to overcome some of my mistakes and we were able to get the win. Campbellsville is a very good team and they played hard.”

Williamsburg churned out 334 yards on offense with 207 yards coming through the air.

“We did a few things wrong and we tinkered with the lineup a bit, but overall, I was pleased,” Herron said. “We made a lot of big plays tonight and we have kept all of our goals alive.

“We want to win as many games as we can, win our conference and our district,” he added. “Right now, we have done a good job, but we still have a tough road ahead.”

Dalton Sizemore led the way on the ground with 60 rushing yards and two touchdowns and he also threw for 207 yards and two scores. Jefferson Patrick added 34 yards rushing and a touchdown while Chase Lowrie also scored a touchdown. Skyler Griffith led the way with six receptions and 98 yards while Corey Shelton had four receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns.

The Yellow Jackets will be back in action Friday on the road against district foe Berea.
