The Holy Trinity Tigers are one win away from a perfect regular season.

Senior quarterback Ty Englehart threw six touchdown passes – five of them to sophomore Dayday Farmer – as the Tigers defeated visiting Pine Ridge 56-21.

The win improves Holy Trinity’s record to 9-0 heading into Friday’s game at Father Lopez in Daytona Beach.

No Holy Trinity team had ever started a season with more than four straight wins prior to what the Tigers have done in 2021.

Englehart, who transferred to Holy Trinity from Melbourne, torched the Pine Ridge defense for 266 yards along with the six touchdowns.

Farmer caught nine passes for 197 yards and five TDs. He also intercepted a pass. Through nine games the Tigers’ star sophomore has caught 35 passes for 902 yards and a whopping 17 touchdowns.

Freshman Brandon Brown, all 6-foot-4, 240 pounds of him, caught Englehart’s other touchdown pass. He also was Holy Trinity’s second-leading rusher with 54 yards on seven carries and a touchdown.

Senior Jadon Gowins led the Tigers rushing attack with nine carries for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Freshman Buddha James intercepted a pass on defense and also had two receptions for 58 yards.

Another freshman, Emmanuel Small, led the defense with nine tackles. Sophomore Nate Jennings had eight tackles.

Freshmen Merrick Campbell and Jaquez Joiner each had seven tackles.

If the Tigers can win at Father Lopez on Friday, they’ll be on quite a roll heading into the Class 2A playoffs with strong play coming from up and down the roster, especially at the quarterback position.

“Ty has surprised the entire county,” Holy Trinity coach Nate Hooks wrote in a Twitter message.

“I’m proud of him because I heard all the doubters saying he couldn’t get the job done. I told him don’t worry he’ll have the best season of his life. He’s very studious and extremely coachable, which has enabled him to have 23 TDs, over 1,500 yards (1,521), just three interceptions, and a 9-0 record.

“With 13 eighth and ninth-grade starters, we are literally a JV team playing varsity football. We became the first HT team to start the season with more than four wins in a row. Now, with nine wins in a row, we’re trying to go 10-0 on Friday.”
