The Omaha Central Eagles opened the 2019 football season with a big win against the Omaha Benson Bunnies, 53-2. A stout offensive line paved the way to allow DeAnthony Bridgeford-Jackett to score 3 touchdowns. Devontae Perry had a good night running too with 10 carries for 97 yards and one touchdown. The Eagles defense, also known as the Grape Crush, played in the backfield all night. Benson had -32 total yards for the game. They were led up front by Kaedyn Reynolds with one solo and 4 assisted tackles, one being for a loss. Ashad Wills also came up big on defense with 4 solos and 2 assisted tackles. The special teams weren’t left out either. DeAnthony blocked a punt once and tackled the punter for a safety on another one. Justin Davis scooped up the blocked punt and ran 22 yards for the score.
