2018 Saraland quarterback Jack West, a Stanford commit,247sports composite 4 star,and top 100 recruit, came in with all the fanfare but once the game started it was Blount quarterback Toney who garnered the headlines.
Toney (6-0, 180) showed his dual threat abilities hitting some nice downfield throws and making people miss in the run game.
On the night he completed 9 of 17 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown while carrying the ball 8 times for 93 yards and three TD’s.
He barely missed two other passing TD’s with nice deep throws but the receivers couldn’t quite make the grab.
On one 47 yard run he was able to bounce it outside, juke some guys, and lowered his shoulder at the end of the run displaying his toughness.
Here he goes over the top of double coverage for a 47 yard TD.
Perhaps his most impressive run of the night was off a terrible snap where he made points out of a play that most would simply fall on.
Here he executes a perfect play fake and then takes it to the house.
Here he throws a nice pass on the move for a huge gain that would lead to his third td, a 1 yard run.
Toney is a playmaker who completely dominated this game against a good Saraland team.
Don’t pay any attention to the three star ranking. Toney will be a difference-maker at the next level.
The Gators are getting another good sleeper out of the Mobile (AL) area after stealing RB Lamical Perine last season.
