The first live segment ended when Vadall Johnson powered in from nine yards out that put the white team up, 68-63.
Incoming-sophomore running backs Johnson and Da Da Brown sparkled like a newly minted coin Friday.
Johnson's touchdown was set up by a 45-yard run up-the-gut by Braylon Parish, who also had a good night.
McCown, who will be a senior in the fall, lofted his second touchdown of the night with 8:41 to go in the game when he found Curtis Landon at the goal line on an out route.
“We moved Curtis Landon from tackle to fullback and it looks like it is going to pay off,” Taber said.
Landon did a fine job of reeling the pass in while double covered.
The scoring play covered 10 yards and extended the offensive unit's lead to 75-63.
Johnson tacked on another rushing touchdown covering 39 yards as he zig-zagged across the field finding several open holes to run through.
“Vadall Johnson is a freshman now, just 15-years-old, but he is a spark plug and he runs with a passion,” Taber said.”When he got to those holes he was determined not to be tackled and he was a pleasant surprise for us (Friday).”
The touchdown put the offense up 86-63 with just over five minutes left in the game.
High came back to redeem himself when he dialed up Thacker, running a skinny post route, from about 25 yards out for six points.
During the controlled portion of the dress rehearsal Brown showed his stuff when he picked up positive yardage on three-consecutive carries and proved to be very difficult to bring down.
That march ended with a touchdown, when Brown steamrolled his way into the north end zone,late in the opening period.
“It was exciting to come out in my first real varsity action and do so well,” Brown said. “With the blocks that I was getting from my lineman...they made it easy to do.”
