Gigantic win for Gators

Wins like the one Captain Shreve got against Ruston on Thursday are the kind that can snowball into highly successful seasons.

The Gators looked unstoppable against the No. 6 Bearcats. At some points, you had to wonder why the Gators weren't the team ranked No. 6?

Shreve quarterback Marc Kimball is going to give Calvary quarterback Jake Booty a fight for The Times All-City team. Kimball may not be as agile as Booty, but his arm looks like it's stronger and more accurate on deep passes.

Calvary's Khiry Cooper and Evangel's Deleon Moss may be the two of the best receivers in this area, but Travis Anderson deserves mention as well. He made a sensational catch in the second half. Kimball lofted the ball out to the left side of the field, soaring the ball out there for Anderson to chase down - which he did. Racing down the Ruston sideline, he beat his man and dived to haul the pass in.

Shreve improves to 3-0 and can feed off this win through the rest of the season. The Gators are a confident bunch right now. I'd hate to be their next opponent (Natchitoches Central).

"We're going to get way better than this, way better," Anderson told me after the game. "Just watch and see."
