Jackson’s trip to Pinedale on Friday night showed just how much can change for a football program in seven days.
Last week against visiting Bear Lake, Idaho, the Broncs put up just seven points in a disappointing Week 2 loss.
A week later, Jackson built a 46-0 lead over the Wranglers at the half before coasting to a dominant 59-6 victory to improve to 2-1 on the season.
“You could tell with their execution tonight it was a lot better,” Broncs Coach David Joyce said.
A lot better for running back Jeydon Cox, too. The senior carried the ball only 12 times — all in the first half — and totaled 268 yards and four touchdowns.
Meanwhile the Broncs defense continued its reputation as the hallmark of the team.
“We are a defensive program even though we try to score as much as we can,” Joyce said.
On the scoring side of the ball, quarterback Sadler Smith played the first half and threw two touchdown passes, including one to Kirby Castagno, who also had a score on the ground. Sophomore running back Brody Hasenack touched the ball only twice, but he put up 63 yards and a score in the victory.
