It took Homecoming inspiration and the return of a couple of key starters for Dickson County High School to pick up its first win of the season by crushing Summit 40-6 Friday night. Running back Otis Gerron and quarterback Will Harmon returned to the lineup after missing the week before due to injuries and had big games against the Spartans. Gerron rushed for 108 yards and three touchdowns while Harmon guided the Cougars to leads of 14-0 in the first period, 31-0 at halftime and 40-0 by the end of the third period, with the final score coming on a 28-yard scoring pass to Cory Rion. John Jackson also rushed for 164 yards, including an 87-yard touchdown in the second period. Jacob Williams booted a 22-yard field goal and Cahleo Vaughn tacked on a safety with a tackle in the end zone. Summit got its lone score in the fourth period on a seven-yard run with Dickson County ahead by 40 points. The Cougars snapped their six-game losing streak and pick up their first District 11-AAA win to improve to 1-6 overall and 1-2 in the district. Summit falls to 1-6 and 0-3 in the district. Spartan coach Scot Keasler has already announced he is stepping down at the end of the season. The Cougars have a short week of preparation as their next game is Thursday at Ravenwood. After a week off, Creek Wood’s Red Hawks return to the field Friday hosting Montgomery Central.
