Senior fullback Isaac German of Mount Pleasant, S.C. rushed for 104 yards and three touchdowns, while the Brevard College defense forced five Apprentice School turnovers as the Brevard College Tornados football team (1-3, 0-3 SAC) earned their first win in over a year with a 38-7 defeat of the The Apprentice School (2-2).

Brevard would open the afternoon scoring on their opening drive of the game as the Tornados' sophomore quarterback Bubba Craven capped off a 14-play, 75- yard drive with a one-yard quarterback sneak up the middle for six BC points.

The Tornados would get the ball back following the Builders' opening drive play as outside linebacker Josh Allman stripped Builders' tailback Fred Hendrieth of the football, while Brevard nose guard Axel Easter fell on the loose football.

Brevard place kicker Dayton Rodgers would use the turnover to drive home a 46-yard field goal that tipped the back of the cross bar and bounced through the uprights to give the Tornados a 10-0 advantage with 2:42 remaining in the opening quarter.

The Tornados' defense would waste no time getting the ball back to coach Paul Hamilton's offense as on The Apprentice School's second play from scrimmage, Brevard inside linebacker Jinsly Jhon would knock the ball loose for the second straight time as Tornados' defensive end Ashton Woodring fell on the loose ball.

German would cap off a four-play, 48-yard drive with a 13-yard scamper, as the senior punched in his second score of the opening quarter of play.

Brevard would increase its lead to 24-0 with 5:45 remaining in the second quarter as Xavier Brown powered in a four-yard sweep for his first score in the blue and white.

The Apprentice School would push the Brevard defense before the half, driving 33 yards on five plays before Tornados' senior cornerback Amir Williams would make a toe dragging interception in the back of the Brevard College end zone to help preserve the BC shutout.

The Tornados would kick off to open the second half before senior safety Casey Shubert would collect the fourth Brevard turnover of the afternoon and his second interception in as many games, as the Conyers, Ga. native happened to be in the perfect position at the right time, running under a tipped pass off the hands of a Builders' receiver that the senior returned 18 yards.

Brevard would use the turnover to extend their score to 31-0 as German powered home his third score of the afternoon on a seven-yard run up the middle, capping off an eight-play, 58-yard drive.

The Builders finally got on the board early in the fourth quarter as quarterback Terrence Sudberry ended an 11-play, 71-yard drive with a five-yard quarterback scramble.

Following a Brevard College punt midway through the fourth, the Tornados' defense would come up with their fifth turnover of the afternoon when freshman defensive back Dontavious Williams intercepted a Sudberry pass that the speedster returned for 40 yards.

A gang of Tornado defenders pounce a loose ball during the first half of their 38-7 win over the Apprentice School. Brevard College recorded two fumble recoveries in the first quarter.

The Tornados would use their third interception of the contest to drive 25 yards on five plays, as German finished off the drive with his third rushing score of the afternoon.

German would lead the Tornados with 104 yards on the ground while fellow backfield mate Karris Johnson nearly eclipsed the century mark, ending the day with 97 yards after departing the game with an apparent foot injury.

Defensively, Brevard was led by Easter as the nose guard racked up a team high six tackles, three solo and three assisted to go along with 0.5 tackles for loss.

Jhon would finish the game with five tackles of his own and Allman would record four tackles to go along with the early forced fumble.

The Tornados will return to South Atlantic Conference action this weekend as they open the month of October with a 1:30 p.m. game with Tusculum on the road.
