LITTLE ROCK – Whether it be the passing attack from quarterback Buddy Gaston to receivers PJ Hall, Martel Nunally, and Deunte Moody, or on the ground by all-purpose back Hunter Smith, the Robinson Senators proved to be too much for the Shiloh Christian Saints Friday night at War Memorial Stadium, taking the 4A State Championship by the score of 56-28.
The Senators were very opportunistic, converting five turnovers into 27 points on the night. Defensive pressure on Shiloh quarterback Eli Reece led to four interceptions, 97 return yards and a touchdown, with another 16 yards gained after a fumble recovery.
Smith scorched the Saints on the ground the entire night, rushing for 213 yards on 22 carries and one touchdown. It was by air that put the rest of the points on the board for Robinson. Gaston completed 17 of 26 passes for 274 yards and six touchdowns, including a strike to Nunally on a crossing route that ended 82 yards later in the endzone. Towards the start of the fourth quarter, the play made the score 49-21, and even with Shiloh’s prolific offense pretty much sealed the outcome for the Senators.
PJ Hall was named the game’s MVP. Hall was able to create separation in the endzone from Shiloh’s defensive backs the entire game, accounting for 9 receptions for 85 yards and three touchdowns.
For Shiloh, Reece was 27 of 44 for 286 yards and two touchdowns despite the four interceptions. Reece’s favorite target was receiver Truitt Tollett who caught 17 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown. Beau Cason also caught 5 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. The Saints ground game was led by Cam Wiedemann who gained 91 yards on 15 carries.
Each team finished the season with an overall record of 14-1, but it was the Senators from Joe T. who took home the grand prize.
