Junior running back Sirr Daye took a hand-off, ran to the right, plowed through a defender knocking him to his feet, and raced up the sideline for a 53-yard touchdown.

Unfortunately for Everglades Prep, Daye’s powerful run was one of the few bright spots in a 52-14 loss to University School.

Daye finished with 113 yards with a score on 11 carries.

“Sirr is going to be Sirr,” Everglades Prep head coach Tony Bing said. “The kid has got heart. He’s one of the best running backs in Dade County. Everybody needs to wake up and stop idolizing everybody else and pay attention to him because he is one of the best.”

Everglades Prep (0-3) was overmatched from the beginning as University School (3-0) jumped out to a 24-0 lead behind three touchdowns and two safeties in the first quarter while holding the Panthers to minus-33 yards

“It’s the same thing,” Bing said. “Kids have got to understand you’ve got to stop beating yourself.”

Morris Hall, who scored the Panthers’ other touchdown, completed 4 of 5 passes for 62 yards to go with minus-27 yards rushing. Kavon Holmes rushed for 37 yards on seven carries and Jaleen Walker had two catches for 44 yards.

University School’s Nick Vattiato threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, and Robert Floyd had a touchdown reception and returned an interception for a score.
