Dwyer wins State Championship; pulls off first ever undefeated season

By John Evenson

Orlando- The Dwyer football team completed a perfect 15-0 season on Friday night in style, by winning the Class 7A State championship. While the Panthers and their opponent Niceville went back and forth with touchdown scores on their first six possessions on the night, it was the Dwyer offense keeping their foot on the gas en route to a 55-39 win, their second State title in school history.

Alonzo Smith rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns, while quarterback Daniel Parr threw for three touchdowns and ran in another.

"It means so much to me," said an excited Parr after the game, "to my teammates, my coaches. Everything we worked for up until this point was for this game, and I just thank god we got it."

It's the second time Dwyer has beaten Niceville to win a State championship, having beat them 42-14 in 2009 for their first title. The celebration came with an extra special feeling of being the only undefeated team in school history.

"It's the best feeling in the World," says head coach Jack Daniels.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Two .500 teams are squaring off in the NFL game this evening. In Pittsburgh, the Steelers are playing host to the Houston Texans. This is just the fifth game between these teams with the series split at 2-2. Each team is coming off a loss as the Steelers lost to the Browns 31-10 while the Texans were taken out by the Colts 33-28.

The Texans have lost two straight after a 3-1 start to the season while the Steelers have alternated wins and losses for their record.


BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson says he expects to be out for about four weeks with a groin injury. Jackson told WGR radio that doctors gave him that prognosis.

Jackson was hurt in the Bills' 17-16 win Sunday over the Vikings. Fellow running back C.J. Spiller also was carted off during the game after injuring his shoulder. His injury is potentially season-ending.


KANSAS CITY (AP) -- The wait is almost over. The opening game of the World Series is just a day away.

Game 1 for the Giants and Royals will be played tomorrow night in Kansas City with James Shields getting the ball for the home team against Madison Bumgarner. Shields is getting the opening game assignment for the third time this post season, while Bumgarner, who was named NLCS MVP, hasn't allowed a postseason run away from home in an MLB-record 26 2/3 innings. That record goes back to 2010.

The Royals advanced with a four-game sweep of the Orioles in the American League Championship Series while the Giants eliminated the Cardinals in five games to win the NLCS.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series will be Wednesday night in Kansas City before the series moves to San Francisco.
