Academy Of Holy Angels
Robbie Grimsley more than made up for an early mistake. The junior ran for three long scores — including a Prep Bowl record 92-yard dash — and Hutchinson crushed the Academy of Holy Angels 49-7 Friday in the Prep Bowl to win its second straight Class 4A Championship and 26th straight game. Grimsley, who finished with 261 yards on six carries before rolling his ankle, scored on runs of 76, 57 and 92 yards in the first quarter to put the Tigers (13-0) well on their way to a fifth school title. Tory Adams added three rushing touchdowns and a punt return for a score. “It’s exciting,” said Grimsley, who fumbled away the opening kickoff. “You never want to fumble the football, especially to start the game like that in the state championship. I was lucky the coaches were willing to give me the ball again and trust me.”
