The Porter Ridge Pirates held on to a tough 27-20 win at home against Cuthbertson.
Senior Jacob Leath (5-10, 145) was the star of the game for the Pirates scoring two touchdowns and gaining 213 all purpose yards on the night.
Leath closed out the scoring in the first half with a 56-yard punt return for a touchdown. Late in the 3rd quarter, QB, Grayson McCall hit Leath mid-stride for a 72-yard touchdown. Not bad for a kid that last played football in middle school.
After the game, I caught up with Leath to discuss his play on opening night.
