VIKINGS 2K18 ROAD TO STATE- FULL SEASON RECAP + COMPLETE PLAYOFF HISTORY




JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA-


The 12-1 Raines Vikings gear up to defend their 2017 4A state title Thursday against the 10-3 Cocoa Tigers in a rematch of last years championship contest in which the Vikings won 13-10 on a 72yd 1st quarter TD run by their all-time leading rusher Brandon Marshall, and a late 4th quarter 8yd TD pass from Ivory Durham to Kamaree Noble. The win ended a 20 year title drought for the Vikings. Raines is still currently the only public school in Duval county with a state title.



After dropping their week 1 game 16-15 to their crosstown rival Lee Generals, the Vikings are rolling on a 12 game win streak which include some dominating wins over upper class playoff teams such as Mandarin, Fletcher, Oakleaf, Lincoln, and Ribault.


Mercer commit Brandon Marshall leads the way for the Vikings' offense as he's rushed for 424yds and 6TDs to help the Vikings put up 137pts in the post season. Marshall continues to reign supreme over Florida's defenses, and classrooms as he has a 4.0 GPA and sits comfortably on his throne as the Vikings' all-time leading rusher with 4027yds, a record he broke in a 200yd 2 TD performance over Sandalwood. Marshall has also logged 59 career TDs thus far. Look for Marshall to have a big outing in his last prep game behind The "Great Wall Of Moncrief" better known as the Raines' offensive line. Howard Ford, Bryant Maddox, Johnny Fitz, Juan Hudson, and Marquell Holbert. That group has gelled tremendously over the past 3 games as they've kept their QBs with clean jerseys.


QB Barron Coates has 31 total TDs this season. Coates go to guy has been Ath Daivarus Thomas. Thomas is the ultimate playmaker for the Vikings logging 4 return TDs on top of his 10 receiving TDs. Barron Coates has a ton of WRs to toss it to. Matt Drayton(5), Kareem Burke(4) , Davian Holliman(4), Jaquez Griffin(3), and Jacourey Rivers(2) have all caught TDs from the Viks' 1st year QB. Ath Jacourey Rivers has 8 TDs on the season, 2 receiving, 4 rushing, and 2 passing which includes a 45yd TD strike to Matt Drayton. Rivers 4 TD performance vs Dunnellon helped lift the Vikings into the state 4A final game. Rivers has emerged late in the season and will be the X-factor for the Vikings Thursday night vs Cocoa. Ath Jamond Handy will also provide the Vikings a spark on offense when the ball lands in his hands as he has 2 rushing TDs this post season. Keto's little brother Kareem Burke can also step into the fray if called up as he scored 9 TDs during the Vikings undefeated JV season.




The Vikings are playing lights on defense, stifling their three playoff opponents to a combined 9 points. They are led by a flurry of pass rushers in Iowa St. commit Aric Horne, Javon Bonsell, Janorris Robertson, Dayvon Pinkney, Derek Nealy Nigel Allen, and James Hall. The Vikings are very opportunistic on defense this year and have cashed in on 10 turnovers with 5 defensive TDs in the playoffs. Horne has a pick 6, Robertson and Uriah Ratliff each have a scoop and score. Jaren Wilson and Jamon Goodwin are beasts in the trenches for the Vikings. Look for those 2 guys to continue to dominate the line of scrimmage and make things easy for those pass rushers vs Cocoa.

The Vikings secondary led by Uriah Ratliff, James Tarver, and Treyvon Hobbs have been virtually a no fly zone this post season. This season the trio have combined for 13 INTs Tarver (5) Ratliff and Hobs each have (4). After a week 5 glitch vs Alabama commit Carson Beck and the Mandarin Mustangs where the Vikings' DBs surrendered 433yds and 4 TDs, the secondary have been able to bottle up some of North Florida's best QBs such as Jeff Sims (Sandalwood), Walt Simmons (Oakleaf), and Chris Beard (Lincoln), giving up just 3 receiving TDs combined. Tarver and James each had a pick 6 vs Lincoln to help knock off the 7A giant 27-20 in Tallahassee. Reavon Tribune, and Jarius Stewart are the hitters of the secondary and play huge roles in stuffing the run. Deep down in the Vikings' DB depth chart sits 2022 DB Kyree Hammond. Hammond will be a future star for Raines as he went home 5 times on 6 picks and also took 2 punts to the house for the JV squad this season. Hammond has been getting some valuable work in clean up duties over the last 3 games.

With both the offensive and defensive lines playing their best ball of the season at this point look for them to play a huge factor in helping Raines defeat Cocoa and raise the 2018 4A title trophy for the3rd time in school history.
