The JV games are showcases for who can play on Friday night, and football coaches, among the least flexible in all sports - lacking the Gumby gene - have to be convinced that a hundred-yard rusher on Monday afternoon is ready for the bright lights of Friday night.
Rasheed Woods, the mercurial running back teammates call “Lulu” because he transferred in from Hawaii, was up and down and sideways the entire game; the players on his bench were gasping as Delmar defenders were faked out of their shoes as Wood danced on air making a living inside the tackles.
And quarterback Learris Griffin, aka RG4, was poised at quarterback, finding Brent Reed a 6-foot-4, 215-pound sophomore tight end for a five-yard touchdown with 1 second left in the half.
Running back William Webb also carried the ball on the inside, proving to be a load to bring down.
Cape’s next JV game is Monday, Sept. 23, at Indian River.
