Jack Britt defense stands tall in 7-0 win over Millbrook

In a defensive battle, 10 seconds of brilliance from Jack Britt wide receiver Tre Hales proved to the difference in a 7-0 Buccaneers win over Millbrook in the seventh game of the 2014 HighSchoolOT.com Jamboree. 2014 HighSchoolOT Jamboree HighSchoolOT Jamboree: Jack Britt 7, Millbrook 0

Early in the second half, with both teams struggling to produce offensively, Hales caught a pass from quarterback Trevor Locklear along the right sideline. Two slick moves later, Hales turned on the jets and outran several members of the Millbrook defense for a 50-yard score.

Jack Britt will need more of that from Locklear and Hales if they hope to produce another deep run in the state playoffs. Hales, who hauled in 21 passes a year ago for 647 yards and 10 touchdowns, is the top returning receiver in 2014. 

Aside from Hales' touchdown, Jack Britt only mustered 78 yards of offense.

Millbrook struggled, too, totaling just 87 yards on the night despite eight different receivers catching passes. Jack Britt's defense, expected to be a strong point in 2014, limited Millbrook's opportunity to produce big plays.

Quarterback Reid Herring struggled, completing just three of his six passes for 12 yards. A year ago, he threw foe more than 2,000 yards. Backup Justin Sauer completed five of his seven attempts in the second half Saturday night for 35 yards. 2014 HighSchoolOT Jamboree Highlights: Jack Britt 7, Millbrook 0

Jonte Leaston, Millbrook's top returning receiver, had just two catches.

The Wildcats are coming off a 10-4 season that saw the team advance to the third round of the 4-AA state playoffs. Millbrook was ousted by Wake Forest, the eventual state runner-up, in quadruple overtime.

Marcus Marshall is Millbrook's returning running back. Marshall, the younger brother of Georgia running back Keith Marshall, tallied 37 yards on six carries against the Buccaneers. He rushed for 1,000 yards last season.

The defense should also be a real strength for the Wildcats, led by defensive end Kengera Daniel, who has multiple Division I offers, and linebacker James Smith-Williams, an NC State recruit.
