WILLIAMSBURG — Jerry Herron’s Williamsburg Yellow Jackets took care of business early against Jenkins during first round action of the Class A playoffs and rolled to an easy, 60-6 win.
Williamsburg jumped out to a 34-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back during its 10th win of the season.
“I thought we came out and did what we needed to,” Herron said. “We felt like if we came out and executed our offense and took what they gave us, we would have a good chance of winning.”
The Yellow Jacket offensive attack was too much for the Cavaliers, as Williamsburg totaled 464 yards of offense with 357 coming through the air.
“I thought we threw the ball well,” Herron said. “Our varsity kids did their job and our young kids came in and played well.”
The win advances the Yellow Jackets to second round action against Harlan, who defeated Lynn Camp Friday at home.
Williamsburg defeated the Green Dragons at home on Aug. 24, 36-0.
“We knew if we were able to win this game we would be playing Lynn Camp or Harlan,” Herron said. “We know what they can do and they know what we can do. I’m sure they’ve added some new things, so we’re going to have to prepare well this week and be ready.”
Dalton Sizemore led the way for Williamsburg by completing 10-of-11 pass attempts for 328 yards and four touchdowns while Brently Patrick completed six-of-seven attempts for 29 yards.
Logan Hamblin led the way on the ground with 47 yards and one touchdown while Austin Huskey, Chris Lowrie, Jefferson Patrick and Dalton Shackleford each had rushing touchdowns.
Skyler Griffith finished the game with four receptions, 150 yards and one score while Andrew Griffith had two catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Logan Hamblin had a 47-yard touchdown reception while Corey Shelton finished the game with 68 yards receiving on four catches and one score.
“We came out and took care of business,” Herron said. “We need to continue to do that.”

The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
