TAMPA — Tampa Bay Tech (6-1, 3-0) got solid contributions from its offense, defense and special teams to knock off Freedom (1-6, 0-3) and stay undefeated in Class 7A-District 7 play.
Returns by Elijah Spann set up the first two Titans touchdowns. After a safety, Spann returned the free kick to midfield, setting up a 39-yard pass from quarterback Deon Cain to Daquon Green.
Spann's 40-yard punt return early in the third quarter set up Cain and Green again, this time for a 31-yard score.
Cain, who came into the game leading the county with 1,481 passing yards, added 167 on 21 attempts.
Fred Russ scored the Titans' final touchdown from 2 yards out.
Rickey Pyron led all rushers with 60 yards on 10 carries.
Next week, Freedom is at Steinbrenner, and Tampa Bay Tech is at Gaither.
