EAGLES DOMINATE SOUTH MIAMI IN SPRING GAME, 37-7
The Eagles finished spring practice May 17 with a dominating victory over South Miami, 37-7, on the Southwest campus. With University of Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz looking on from the sideline, Southwest scored five touchdowns and a safety. The Eagles scored on their second possession with Deondre Henry racing 48 yards down the sideline for six points. Sophomore-to-be Fanelle Andrus, who played almost the entire game at quarterback, scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter to make it 14-0. The Cobras then scored their only touchdown on a direct snap to the running back who went 46 yards up the middle. Coral Gables transfer Nick Watson made a splash in his Southwest debut catching a 61-yard TD pass, and a 30-yard interception return by Jordan Worley made it 28-7 at the half. In the third quarter, Ian Valdes was wide open in the end zone on a 1-yard scoring pass and, in the final period, Edgerrin Gavins tackled the South Miami quarterback in the end zone for a safety to round out the scoring.
