The Mountain Brook High School football team marched behind its offensive leaders, quarterback Strother Gibbs and running back Sam Higgins, en route to a 49-35 victory at Class 7A, Region 3 foe Spain Park on Friday night. Gibbs ran for four touchdowns and 121 yards on 19 carries. He also completed 9-of-11 passes for 183 yards and two more scores. Higgins scored the seventh touchdown and gained 116 yards on 18 rushes. The two players accounted for all but 36 of the Spartans’ yards. Things didn’t start out badly at all for the Jaguars, who held an early 14-7 lead in the first quarter thanks to a touchdown pass from Harrison Barker to David Moultry, followed by a Barker 1-yard run that was set up by two passes for 46 yards. But Mountain Brook soon took command. Gibbs threw a 20-yard scoring toss to Paulson Wright and then strung together a pair of short-yardage plunges for scores. After the Jaguars turned the ball over on downs deep in their own territory, Higgins took the ball on two straight runs through a porous defense, finding the end zone on a 21-yard dash early in the fourth quarter. Spain Park tried to claw its way back from a four-TD deficit in the fourth quarter, with Barker finding Moultry for a 20-yard strike and Michael Callens for a 5-yarder late. Barker was called on to fire up the aerial attack early and often, and responded with 28 completions on 45 pass attempts for 359 yards. The son of former Alabama quarterback Jay Barker did his best to keep up the family tradition, as he has in all of the Jaguars’ games this season. But his receivers also dropped six catchable passes, and the Spartans defense kept the pressure on Barker from the beginning. Mountain Brook coach Chris Yeager was impressed with Gibbs, but also had praise for tight end Crawford Golden, who had one touchdown reception plus a 52-yard catch that set the table for a Gibbs score in the third quarter. “That was one of the key plays of the game for us,” Yeager said. “Crawford had a great night. But Strother had a complete game, too.” Golden tallied 82 yards on three receptions, while Wright caught four passes for 81 yards. Moultry finished with 127 yards receiving on 10 catches for the Jags. Cooper Kelley gained 93 yards on six receptions. Callens rushed for 75 yards on 19 carries. For Spain Park (1-3, 0-2 in region), the problem lies yet again in a very young defense that simply lacks experience against the toughest offenses in the state, leaving Barker’s offense to pick up the slack. “They’re young, and Mountain Brook just picked up on that tonight,” Jags coach Shawn Ramey said afterward. “Defensively we’re just not good right now. We just need more experience.” Mountain Brook runs its record to 4-0 and 2-0 in the region, but takes on a resurgent Vestavia Hills team on the road next week. Spain Park’s journey doesn’t get any easier, as it travels to Hewitt-Trussville....

Mountain Brook High School head coach Chris Yeager has come to expect Logan Brewer to make a play. The senior wide receiver and defensive back had a touchdown catch in the season-opener and returned an interception for a touchdown in Game 2. Brewer came through in Game 3, returning a kickoff 54 yards to set up the touchdown to put the Spartans ahead for good in their 31-21 victory over Tuscaloosa County on Friday night at Spartan Stadium. “So far, any time we have needed a little bit of wind in our sails, he has really stepped up and provided it for us,” Yeager said of Brewer. “He’s just such a playmaker. I kept thinking he’s done it in so many different ways. What’s another way he can do it and he did it on special teams tonight.” The winless Wildcats (0-3 overall and 0-1 in Class 7A, Region 3) sent their fans into a frenzy as they took a 13-10 lead late in the first half on Damien Taylor’s 12-yard run. Unfortunately for the visitors, that lead was only 13 seconds of game time, thanks to Brewer. “Logan is our best player on the team,” quarterback Strother Gibbs said. “He sets up the intensity every game and that kickoff return was huge. It set up all of our energy for the second half and that touchdown there at the end of the first half.” Gibbs scored the first of his two touchdowns with 26 seconds left on the first-half clock. Tuscaloosa County shocked the Spartans with a powerful running attack that was anchored by Taylor, who finished with 101 yards on 19 carries. “I want to tip my hat to them,” said Yeager, whose team improved to 3-0, 1-0 in region. “They did a heck of a job running the ball right at the heart of our defense. We’ve played real good defense all year long. It says a lot about their running back. It was very impressive how he ran and the quarterback (Connor White) made some unbelievable, precision throws on timely downs and just kept our defense on the field. The first half we had the ball twice.” Gibbs’ 35-yard touchdown run gave Mountain Brook enough breathing room to salt away the victory. “To me, we played a good football team,” Yeager said. “That is a totally different football team from a year ago. They’re a totally different football team from last week. They’ve had a lot of improvement.” The changes in the Wildcats lineup had much to do with injuries that have forced players who had been backups into the lineup. Friday night, they delivered. “Connor White was a prime example tonight,” coach Jay Todd said. “I thought Connor played a heck of a game. He gave us a chance. That’s all you can ask from a guy, just go in there and give us a chance. There were others. A lot of guys stepped up and played hard.” Mountain Brook heads to Spain Park for another region game next week. Tuscaloosa County hosts Vestavia Hills....
