Tates Creek’s senior quarterback Cam Workman won homecoming king honors at halftime of the school’s football game on Friday night.
He was happy to share the court with Whitney Powell, the school’s elected queen, but he seemed more elated with the Commodores’ 38-8 victory over Bryan Station. It was Creek’s second straight victory over the Defenders.
“My family came into town, so it was a pretty big night for them. I was excited about the ‘W’ coming out of the first half,” said Workman, who threw for 96 yards on 8-for-16 passing.
Tates Creek led 31-0 at halftime and put a running clock into effect with 7:46 to play in the third quarter on Teonte White’s second touchdown of the night.
White had 60 yards on nine carries. Laron Warner led Tates Creek with 74 yards and a TD, also on nine rushes. Darryl Bell led Creek with 77 receiving yards on six catches.
Dozier Combs, Tates Creek’s kicker, and White also were among those in the running for homecoming king on Friday night.
“He earned it, all the votes are from the students,” White said. “I thought it was gonna be me. I’m the most handsome black man in the school.”
Chris Jones had 73 yards seven carries for Bryan Station. He scored the Defenders’ only TD on a 56-yard run with 9:55 to play.
The Commodores improved to 4-1, their best start under fourth-year coach Antoine Sims and best since 2013. They’re off next week before traveling to Danville, a Class 2A power.
Bryan Station fell to 0-4, its worst start since an 0-8 kickoff to the season in 2010.
