Spring game-breakers: Gaither quarterback Kamren Hawkins showed he has dual-threat ability. Hawkins ran well and threw several nice passes, one a 10-yard touchdown strike to Justin Lattimore. ...Cowboys running back Jarvis Giles, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound rising junior, carried five straight plays in the second quarter and gained a tough 30 yards against what figures to be a strong Terriers defense. He has several college programs interested. ...Chamberlain quarterbacks Dontae Aycock and Robert Charies shared snaps and both were effective. Charies scored on a 7-yard run. ...Middleton defensive tackle Moses McCray, who has committed to Florida State, blocked a field goal that led to the Tigers' only score. As he ran off the field, he told teammates, "I said I was going to get it."

Did you know?: Middleton running back Carlton Jones, who is being recruited hard by schools such as Auburn and Florida, did not play because of a sprained right ankle. ...Chamberlain receiver Fred Sykes picked up an offer this week from Arizona State. ...More than a dozen college coaches were in attendance Friday night.
