White Team mounts furious comeback; downs Gray Team in OT on T-Day

TROY, AL (WSFA) -

The Troy Trojans completed their 3rd T-Day spring football game under head coach Neal Brown on Saturday. The two teams battled back and forth, but the White Team made one more play in the overtime period to take home the 21-20 victory.

The Gray Team held a 19-3 lead in the 4th quarter, but touchdown runs by running back Keith Johnson and quarterback Sawyer Smith, along with two two-point conversions, tied the game as time expired.

The Trojans went to a Best-of-Three one-on-one drills to decide the winner.

Tied up at one each, lineman Zach Branner was able to power his way into the end zone to secure the White Team their steak dinner while the Gray Team would have to eat defeat, and hot dogs.

Jamarius Henderson led the Trojans on the ground with 84 yards on eight carries. Johnson had 31 yards on 10 carries with a score.

Smith was the leading passer in Brandon Silvers absence. The sophomore completed 9-of-15 passes for 161 yards.

On defense, Kyler Knudsen had a pick that set up the game-tying score while Wetumpka's own Hunter Reese had a fumble recovery for a touchdown.

The Trojans will get some much needed time off to rest and recover before getting back in full swing this summer.
