Nature Coast scored on its first eight drives of the game, in route to a 57-21 victory on the road against South Lake Friday.

The win was monumental for the Sharks who finished the regular season a perfect 10 wins and no defeats.

While the Sharks celebrated this milestone after the game, star running back DeShawn Smith also had some celebrating of his own to do.

Smith, who ran for 326 yards and six rushing touchdowns, broke the record for career yards and touchdowns.

With 2,768 rushing yards and 47 touchdowns this season alone, Smith boosted his career stats to 5,051 yards and 70 touchdowns.

A lot of defenders only got to see the back of Smith this season

The former record was held by Tevin Drake (4,991 yards, 69 touchdowns) who also wore the Carolina Blue and Black for Nature Coast.

The game itself was a laugher from the get-go. An early South Lake (3-6) turnover set the Sharks up inside the Eagle 30-yard line and Smith paid off with a 24-yard touchdown run to make to 7-0 visitors.

Nature Coast (10-0) would see Smith run for touchdowns of 81 and 56 yards on the next to possessions to give him the county record and Sharks a stranglehold on the game.

Brian Haygood threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Smith, and recovered the fumble on South Lake’s first possession.

Up next for the Sharks is a home playoff date with former district rival Zephyrhills. The game will be held Friday at Nature Coast.

  • Lol before you try to bash the coaches, check your grammatical usage as you have a run-on sentence. Secondly, 10-0 never happened before. So obviously something is being done right. Third, there are other schools in the county where you might like to place your child if you’re that unhappy with the coaches. Last, who would you prefer to touch the ball more if not Smith? Just curious

  • I feel that it is unfair how the coaches only let smith run the ball all the time it take a team to win not one player I am very upset with the coaches.

    • Really? Have you been to a game? He is the only one who can run the ball. They let four other players try, they just don’t make it. Don’t be so quick to hate.
