In a first half when senior quarterback Collin Thurman's passing was impeccable, Ooltewah built a commanding 28-3 lead over bitter rival East Hamilton and went on to beat the Hurricanes 38-3 before a standing-room-only crowd at Larry Henry Stadium.

Thurman completed all 11 passing attempts for 119 yards and touchdowns covering 2 and 20 yards to Tahj Cargle and Kasaud Featherstone, respectively, in the first 24 minutes.

“We wanted to come out fast, score on the first drive and execute our offense,” Thurman said. “Bang, bang, bang. We scored right away and had all the momentum, and that was good.”
