Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for Aug. 23 – Quan Smith (Buchholz)


The Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for Friday, Aug. 23, was Quan Smith of the Buchholz (Gainesville) football team.

Smith had a game-high 190 yards rushing as the Bobcats defeated Eastside, 21-20, to win for the 7th straight time in the series.

His first rushing TD came on a 44-yard run to give Buchholz (1-0) an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter. He finished with 108 yards in the opening half.

The junior had Buchholz’s only score in the second half, catching a swing pass from junior quarterback Jack Hevesy and racing 40 yards untouched for a TD. The extra point proved to be the difference in the game after a late TD by Eastside (0-1) brought the Rams within one but the extra point was blocked.

Smith then finished it off with a game-clinching 46-yard run that prevented Eastside from getting the ball back.
