Mater Academy was impressive on both sides of the ball as the Lions rolled to a 58-0 victory over district foe Mourning.
Senior quarterback Kaywon Hanna passed for 155 yards — while running for 54 — and tossed four touchdowns as he celebrated a nice win on his 18th birthday.
Mater improved to 3-1 while Mourning remained winless at 0-3.
“The win was a real team effort from everybody,” Hanna said. “This is the best way to celebrate your birthday.”
Defensively, the Lions were led by defensive back Nez Dacosta whose impressive leaping interception led to a 68-yard return.
After the game, defensive back Latavious Brini said he attended his first Miami game Saturday, saying “it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I had a lot of fun. I got a chance to be on the field with coach Mark Richt after the game.”
Brini, a Georgia commit, plans on multiple collegiate visits including trips to Florida, Georgia, USC, Notre Dame and Louisville.
