Senior Jowan Watson has strong game for Gulliver Prep in victory over Archbishop McCarthy

Gulliver Prep dominated host Archbishop McCarthy from start to finish in the season opener.

Senior quarterback Jowan Watson led the Raiders with 185 passing yards, three passing touchdowns and a 7-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

“I think we did pretty well coming away with the win,” Watson said. “We still got a lot to improve upon.”

Junior running backs CJ Hasan and Cedrick Wright rushed for a combined 144 yards on 17 carries. Hasan scored on a pair of rushing touchdowns in the first half.

Mavericks junior running back Anthony Rey had 84 yards on 21 carries, but Gulliver’s defense held strong.
