KNOXVILLE — With Cade Larkins throwing three touchdown passes on Friday night, David Crockett nabbed a 28-21 victory over TSSAA private school Knox Webb.

Larkins had a 9-yard TD pass to Mason Britton and a 40-yarder to Donta Hackler as the Pioneers took a 14-7 halftime lead.

Larkins hit Prince Kollie for a 20-yard score in the third quarter and Ronquille Joyner added a 3-yard TD run to put Crockett up 28-14 in the fourth.

“To be honest, they played better than we expected,” Crockett coach Hayden Chandley said. “They do stuff that’s hard to prepare for, but we made enough plays to win.”
