GMC hung in the game until the very end and rolled off 14 points in the
fourth quarter to defeat Coffeyville CC int he Sea Island Company Golden
Isles Bowl in Brunswick, GA.

The top two rushing teams in the NJCAA did not dissapoint fans, though the
majority of the points were scored through the airways during the game.
Coffeyville took the lead after teams exchanged short drives and punts that
pinned GMC down inside the ten yard line. Sophomore QB Ferlando Williams
was called for intentional grounding in the endzone to give up the safety to
Coffeyville. Coffeyville took the free kick and marched back into the
endzone for a 9-0 lead on pass play. GMC inserted freshman Kelvin Todd on
the next drive at QB and he delivered, avoiding the blitz and connecting
with Phillip Morris on a scoring strike to narrow the margin to 9-7 at the

Coffeyville seemed to come out and take control in the second half, marching
the length of the field in over eight minutes and converting the two point
play to expand their lead over GMC to 17-7. Coffeyville continued to march
down the field, eating up the remainder of the third quarter and part of the
fourth, but GMC mounted a goalline stand to keep the score at 17-7. GMC
covered about 90 yards on two plays, starting with a play action pass to
Antroun McDaniel that almost went the distance and put the Bulldogs inside
the Red Raven 20 yard line. Ferlando Williams then checked out of a run and
delivered the ball to Phillip Morris for his second touchdown of the night
and closed the gap to 17-14.

Coffeyville responded however and drove down again into the GMC redzone but
the Bulldog \”D\” stopped Coffeyville again on fourth down to take control of
the ball with less than two minutes remaining. Ferlando Williams ran the
two minute drill to perfection, moving the Bulldogs quickly into scoring
position and then reading their blitz perfectly by shooting the ball into
the flats to Antroun McDaniel who scampered in for the score. GMC held on,
with Sophomore Jasper Brinkley adding the final stop on a sack to seal the
win for GMC. GMC ends the season as the Golden Isles Bowl Champion with a
9-2 record.
