Elkhart Central racks up yards, but has no answer for Adams back Vann

SOUTH BEND — Elkhart Central sophomore Antwaan Allen — making his second straight start at quarterback — threw for three touchdown passes Friday, Oct. 11, against South Bend Adams at School Field.

Two of those scoring aerials were caught by senior Tre Taylor (17 and 26 yards). The other was gathered in by senior Vince Lucchese (21 yards).

Blue Blazers junior tailback Joe Phillips ran for 140 yards as the visitors racked up 308 total yards of offense.

But Adams (4-4, 3-3) powered for a 45-21 Northern Indiana Conference football victory thanks in large part to senior power back Shaq Vann (251 ground yards and four touchdowns plus 56 receiving yards).

Vann had scoring runs of 15, 5, 85 and 2 yards before leaving the backfield midway through the third quarter.

“If you don’t put your head down and drive through, he’s going to run through those tackles,” said Central coach Levon Johnson, whose squad fell to 2-6 overall and 0-5 in the NIC. “He’s a physical kid and there’s a reason he’s getting D-I looks.”

Eagles coach Craig Redman said his team tweaked its offensive scheme just a little going into the contest.

“We went big on big and see if we can run north and south,” said Redman.

The Blazers also turned the ball over three times and committed 98 yards in penalties.
