Luper helps Sherman beat Greenville in Lions' season finale



GREENVILLE — Watauga Harvest 62,

Greenville Christian 38

  Returning all-state running back A.J. McCort of Watauga Harvest accounted for 377 yards and seven touchdowns as the Saints handed Greenville Christian School a 62-38 loss in the Eagles’ six-man football season finale on Saturday.

  McCort, who was a first-team selection last year in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools, rushed for 278 yards and six touchdowns on 20 carries and was 7-of-8 passing for 99 yards and another score. McCort’s scoring dashes covered 42, 12, 59, 5, 67 and 37 yards. He also connected with receiver Stanton Cain on a 30-yard touchdown pass.

  The Watauga Harvest senior had a very busy day at Eagle Field. He also intercepted a pass, forced a fumble and made some key stops on defense, plus was the holder on seven successful conversion kicks by Kaleb Schweitzer.

  “I’m glad he’s graduating,” said GCS coach David Wombaker.

  Justin Rogers scored the Saints’ other touchdown on a 5-yard run as McCort had a hand in 56 of their 62 points.

  Watauga Harvest, now 5-5, heads to the playoffs while GCS finishes at 1-9.

David Chandler accounted for five of the Eagles’ six touchdowns. The GCS sophomore rushed for 138 yards on 19 carries, scoring on two 13-yard runs. Chandler also threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to   Will Martens and returned a Harvest fumble 40 yards for a touchdown.

Tristan Wooten scored the other Eagle touchdown on a 1-yard run and Pretei Lemo booted a conversion. Wooten finished with 36 yards on eight carries.

  Brady Bowers also intercepted a pass for GCS and Morgan Henry and Martens recovered Watauga Harvest fumbles.

  “For the last game they played hard,” said Wombaker. “They played well. Everybody improved this season.”

  GCS practiced most of the week with only seven players due to injuries.

  “They never quit,” said Wombaker. “Fought through some injuries.”

  GCS will lose only one player to graduation, senior Chris Martin who was recognized in a pre-game ceremony.
