Cass Tech steamrolls Catholic Central for state championship

DETROIT (AP) -- Freshman quarterback Jayru Campbell threw five touchdown passes to lead Detroit Cass Tech to a stunning 49-13 rout of Detroit Catholic Central in the Division 1 title game Saturday at Ford Field.

Royce Jenkins-Stone gave the Technicians (11-3) a 6-0 lead with a 32-yard run in the first quarter, and Campbell made it 14-0 with a 46-yard touchdown pass to Lile Ruben.

The Shamrocks (12-2) got on the board on a 47-yard pass from Kyle Cooper to Anthony Darkangelo, but Campbell restored the 14 point lead with a 36-yard pass to Terry Richardson.

The next big play came when William White blocked a Catholic Central punt and returned it to the 18. Two plays later, Campbell hit Shuron Jackson for a 16-yard touchdown and a 28-7 lead.
