McCormick demolishes Whitmire

WHITMIRE - It took McCormick High School's football team two offensive plays to score 27 points.
It also took the Chiefs less than 16 minutes to pull their starters.
The Chiefs were just that good, and Whitmire was just, well, Whitmire.
McCormick used two special teams touchdowns and a defensive touchdown in the first quarter to hand the Wolverines their 28th consecutive loss with a 46-0 nonregion victory on the road Friday.
"It's always nice when it's happening on your own side," McCormick coach Brian Neal said. "It's not as fun when you're on the other side of it sometimes."
Jaylan Cook, who returned an interception 54 yards for a score and a punt 66 yards to paydirt, added, "Our offensive coordinator (Bryan Buffkin), he was kind of upset about that. He couldn't get too mad. I mean, the team was just ready."
McCormick (3-1 overall) got on the scoreboard when quarterback Jay Weaver hit Kensaevious Brown for a 46-yard touchdown pass. Then, the Chiefs scored the next three times without running an offensive play when Cook's two scores sandwiched Angelo Littlejohn's 72-yard punt return for a touchdown.
The Chiefs pushed the lead to 33 on Jalen Adams' 3-yard TD run, and Allynn Williams put the exclamation mark on Whitmire's homecoming with a 47-yard scamper.
