The Ferris Yellowjackets made school history Friday by beating Quinland Ford 28-0 to start the season 4-0 for the first time.
Ferris' win came thanks to some offense and a whole lot of defense. As the offense keeps putting up the points to win, the defense puts them in the position so score those points.
The Yellowjacket defense swarmed all over the field and held Quinland Ford to 201 total yards on offense, all of which came on the ground.
Ferris also forced seven fumbles and recovered four of them. Lorenzo Garcia, Chuey Gutierrez, Pete Moreno and Kolby Luttrull recovered the fumbles. Luttrull added an interception in the fourth quarter to help seal the win. This is the second game this year Ferris has shut out its opponent.
The Ferris offense had 303 total yards on offense, 174 in the air. The Yellowjacket offense got the game started as quarterback Javaughn Thurman scored on the ground from 16 yards out.
In the second quarter, Thurman's arm came alive with a 50-yard touchdown pass to Darius Rouwtt. Then Thurman connected with Cameron king on an 82-yard pass play to set up a three-yard touchdown run by Thurman.
In the fourth quarter, running back Jay Foster added a touchdown on a 28-yard run.
Through four games, the Yellowjackets have scored 128 points while holding their opponents to just 18 in four games with two shut outs.
The defense has nine interceptions on the season. The offense has scored 20 or points in every game.
Next Friday, Ferris will try to make it five in a row as it hosts Crandall for homecoming.
