Last season, Jacorey Lewis became the first Mill Creek player to rush for 1,000 yards. It’s a pretty safe bet he’ll top that number.
The senior running back ran for 216 yards and three touchdowns as Mill Creek dominated Dacula 35-0. Displaying huge size up front, skill in the backfield, ability to throw and a swarming defense, Mill Creek coasted to the victory in the opener for both teams. The teams historically have played close ball games, but Mill Creek, the largest school in the state, may have outgrown the Falcons. Even after jumping to an early lead, Mill Creek coach Shannon Jarvis said he expected Dacula to come back and make it into another dogfight. Not this year.
“If you would’ve told me that it would’ve been like this, I don’t know that I would’ve believed you,” Jarvis said. “And that’s a credit to our kids. I was pleased with our effort and the way that we came out and executed in the first half. Good things happen when you got players flying to the ball.”
