Sanford, Jones reach career milestones this season

Mitchell Sanford and Josh Jones have taken plenty of varsity snaps and quarter-back and running back during their four-year careers as members of the Berwick Panthers.

Berwick High School's Josh Jones, above, ran for 616 yards and nine touchdowns during Friday's 60-29 victory against North Vermilion in District 8-3A action in LeRoy. The total by Jones, if included in the National Federation of High School Associations' records, would rank as the sixth-best all-time mark, according to the list found on the association's website. Berwick will continue its season Friday when it opens the first round of the Class 3A playoffs on the road against Northwest High School. (Submitted Photo/Courtesy of Beverly Vincent)

A Night For The Ages: Jones runs for 616 yards, 9 TDs in Panthers' win

Josh Jones found an opening, dodged a tackle, and he was gone.

Berwick High School's Josh Jones carries the football during Friday's 38-21 victory against Ascension Episcopal in Youngsville. Jones rushed 30 times for 17 yards and four scores, while he also caught two passes for 50 yards and a score. He would have had five total touchdowns, but much of a 69-yard touchdown reception was negated due to a holding penalty. Berwick improves to 2-3 with the win and will open District 8-3A play at home Friday against Erath. (The Daily Review/Geoff Stoute)
