Scott coach Shane Griffith shook things up this week.
The Skyhawks unveiled a new offense but got the same successful results, racking up 430 yards of total offense as six different players scored touchdowns in a 40-7 romp Friday night over host Herbert Hoover on Senior Night.
A crowd of about 600 attended the Class AA Cardinal Conference matchup at Joe Eddie Cowley Field at Falling Rock.
Scott senior running back Robert Bias' 114 yards on 11 carries and one score paced a rushing attack that amassed 342 yards, and junior quarterback Cody Brown completed all six of his passes for 88 yards and a TD while adding a 4-yard rushing score.
Skyhawks sophomore tailback Triston Crone added 67 yards on the ground and a 1-yard TD run, junior Cam Loftus chipped in 62 yards and a 24-yard score and sophomore Hunter Bradley had 56 yards and a 6-yard TD. Scott junior James Dehart hauled in a 17-yard scoring pass in his debut at wide receiver and also intercepted a Hoover pass in the end zone right before halftime.
After Scott suffered a 47-6 loss at home to Wayne last week that knocked the No. 4 Hawks (7-1) from the top spot in the state rankings, Griffith thought his team was getting too stale.
"We had a chance to see the gap that exists and we're going to try to close that gap,'' said Griffith. "We put this offense in on Monday. We've never run this offense in our life.
"We've never run any of the motions or shifts. I guess it's a wing-T type offense, but I'm not big on that. I like iso, so we're calling it the ice-T offense. I thought it was big for these guys to come back, rebound and play a focused game.''
After recovering Hoover's fumble on its first play from scrimmage at the Scott 26-yard line, the Skyhawks marched 74 yards in eight plays as Crone scored from 1 yard out to take the lead for good at 7-0. After a Huskies punt, Scott moved 77 yards on seven plays behind Brown's 35-yard pass to Bradley and a 17-yard TD toss to Dehart for a 14-0 advantage with 4:06 left in the first quarter.
