St. Augustine, Nease scorch scoreboard in 100-point rivalry

St. Augustine defeated Nease in a St. Johns County rivalry game with 100 points, 662 passing yards and 50 first downs.

Defense wasn’t anywhere in the vicinity at Nease Friday night in the St. Johns County battle between visiting St. Augustine and Nease.

The two teams combined for 100 points, 662 passing yards and 50 first downs. Yet surprisingly in the end, it took a big defensive play by the Yellow Jackets to secure a 55-45 win over the Panthers.

At center stage for the visitors was quarterback Sammy Edwards. He passed for 302 yards and six touchdowns in leading the Yellow Jackets to their second game of 50-plus points in the last four weeks (56-7 win over Englewood). Edwards led his team to three touchdowns on their first three possessions, connecting with Jaden McDowell (15 yards) and twice with Jose Blanco (6 and 55 yards). Near the end of the first half, he teamed with Blanco for yet another score, this one from 10 yards out.

That established a career best for Edwards, surpassing his previous high of three touchdowns last week against Matanzas.........................................................................

Wow!! So many passionate and talented teachers have left a strong legacy to so many of us yellow jackets.

Thank you to each of these educators for their hard work and dedication to the future.

St. Augustine’s Dequan Stanley is ‘dangerous’ in the open field

St. Augustine junior Dequan Stanley enters Friday’s rivalry game against Nease averaging 38.9 yards per kickoff return. He has returned kickoffs for touchdowns in three of his last four games.

There was a moment Wednesday evening when the greatest kick returner in St. Augustine’s 101-year history was on the receiving end of a verbal grenade.

Once upon a time, Brandon James was an All-American kick returner at the University of Florida. These days, he is running backs and returners coach at his alma mater. The latter qualification is what led Dequan Stanley to joke he would break all of James’ St. Augustine High records.

Stanley averages 38.9 yards per kickoff return and scored three return touchdowns, in official games, this fall. Clay was the first team to get an intimate view of No. 5 speed and vision in the return game in the Aug. 16 kickoff classic.

The next team who will try to slow down St. Johns County’s most dangerous return specialist is Nease. The Panthers (1-6) welcome St. Augustine (4-3) as their homecoming opponent tonight..............................................................................................................................................

ST. AUGUSTINE AT NEASE

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Radio: WAOC 96.5-FM, 1420-AM

Records: St. Augustine 4-3, .575 RPI, 6th in Region 1-6A; Nease 1-6, .415 RPI, 21st in Region 1-8A

Last Game: Bartram Trail 52- Nease 22; St. Augustine 43-Matanzas 29

Last Meeting: Nease won 14-13 in 2018

Game Info: St. Augustine have won 29 of 35 meetings against Nease. The Yellow Jackets enter this rivalry having defeated Matanzas by a margin that was not indicative of the Yellow Jackets’ dominance in the contest. Nease can’t say the same about its Week 8 setback. St. Augustine’s run defense held Matanzas to 96 rushing yards and 2.5 yard per carry last week. Defensive lineman Jeremiah Broxton took up residence in the Pirates backfield finishing with six tackles, a sack, two tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. Broxton and the rest of St. Augustine’s defensive line are facing a Nease offense that is averaging 4.13 yards per carry. Quarterback Joe Nieves is Nease’s leading rusher with 584 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns. Nieves has thrown for 1,392 yards this season; but was intercepted three times last week against Bartram Trail. Nease would be wise to not let St. Augustine wide receiver/defensive back/kick returners Dequan Stanley get his hands on the football. Stanley touched the football eight times last week and scored three touchdowns.

St. Augustine handles Matanzas, earns homecoming win

Homecoming game tonight.

MATANZAS AT ST. AUGUSTINE

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Radio: WAOC 96.5-FM, 1420-AM

Records: Matanzas 1-5, 0-1, .438 RPI, 14th in Region 1-6A; St. Augustine 3-3, 1-0, .580 RPI sixth in Region 1-6A.

Last Game: Lake Howell 21-Matanzas 13; Flagler Palm Coast 14-St. Augustine 13

Last Meeting: St. Augustine won 29-6 in 2014.

Game Info: The Yellow Jackets have won their five meetings against Matanzas by an average of 33 points. The Yellow Jackets offense must find avoid the spells of inefficiency that cost them in losses against Bolles, Bartram Trail and Flagler Palm Coast. In each of those contests St. Augustine had a 30 minute period without scoring. Matanzas may be the perfect elixir to help the offense produce points throughout the game. Considering the Pirates conceded a defensive and special teams touchdown in last week’s loss, this may be an opportunity for Dequan Stanley, Jaden McDowell, Sean Harvey and others to help the Yellow Jackets produce a special teams touchdown for a fourth straight game. A St. Augustine win in this District 3-6A contest would mean the Yellow Jackets’ Oct. 25 contest at Ponte Vedra would be for the district title.

FLAGLER PALM COAST AT ST. AUGUSTINE

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Radio: WAOC 96.5-FM, 1420-AM

Records: Flagler Palm Coast 5-0, St. Augustine 3-2

Last Game: Flagler Palm Coast 38- Orange City University 13, St. Augustine 56- Englewood 7

Last Meeting: Flagler Palm Coast won 47-14 in 2018

Game Info: After two hurricanes, one cancellation and a postponement the Yellow Jackets are finally hosting Flagler Palm Coast. Hurricane Irma forced the two schools to cancel the 2017 contest that was supposed to be at St. Augustine. Hurricane Dorian led to the postponement of this year’s game from Week 3 to Week 7. As for the contest itself, the return of Anfernee Wilson and Jose Blanco to St. Augustine’s offense means senior Dequan Stanley can focus on being a lock-down defender and ace returner in special teams. The move has paid dividends as Stanley has kickoff returns in consecutive weeks.

The SA/KHS Alumni Association is thinking of you Wiles Family.

With the recent passing this past Wednesday of 2011 SA/KHS HOF Inductee Herbie Wiles, we will revisit his hall of fame induction ceremony and video tribute for Herbie Wiles that was associated with the 2nd Annual SA/KHS Hall of Fame dinner held on October 27, 2011.

A native of St. Augustine, Herbie was a devoted family man who cared deeply for his wife, children, extended family, grand kids and great grand kids. A gentleman to the core he will never be forgotten for the service, hard work and dedication he provided to the St. Augustine community his entire life.

Brief Biography -

Herbie Wiles attended Ketterlinus High School and served in the Navy during World War II. After graduating Florida State University in 1952 with a BA in business, he joined his father as a State Farm insurance agent. In 1961 he founded Herbie Wiles Insurance and was currently “retired,” even though he still maintained an office.

His commitment to his native city is reflected in his record of public service. Mr. Wiles was president of the St. Augustine/St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce in 1965, served three terms on the St. Johns County Board of Commissioners, president of the St. Augustine Historical Society, on the board of trustees at Flagler Hospital and its advisory board, was president of the St. Augustine Kiwanis Club, Betty Griffin House, the Presidents’ council of Flagler College and treasurer of the Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Mr. Wiles served as the first chairman of the Northeast Florida Regional Planning Council. His contributions to local civic matters have been recognized by a lifetime service award for longstanding commitment and concern for good government and for service to fellow citizens.

City mourns loss of Herbie Wiles, who died at 92

Herbie Wiles was so active in this community that his connections to his many friends and acquaintances cover a huge range of experiences.

Longtime residents of St. Augustine almost inevitably came across him as a fellow volunteer in some civic organization, a customer of his insurance business, as a constituent of his while serving in political office or just someone who liked the same restaurants — and perhaps all of those things.

Wiles is a man who clearly left a legacy here, capped by his acceptance of the city’s Order of La Florida award in 2013. The well-known businessman and philanthropist died Wednesday at 92.

The funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Oct. 7 at Memorial Presbyterian Church at 32 Sevilla St. with a reception to follow in the Fellowship Hall. There will be a visitation from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 6 at Craig Funeral Home.

City mourns loss of Herbie Wiles, who died at 92

ENGLEWOOD AT ST. AUGUSTINE

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Radio: WAOC 96.5-FM, 1420-AM

Records: Englewood 1-3, 0-0; St. Augustine 2-2, 0-0

Last Game: Middleburg 42- Englewood 7; Bartram Trail 43- St. Augustine 40

Last Meeting: St. Augustine won 51-0 in 2018

Game Info: The Yellow Jackets may be .500 and lost two straight entering the beginning of their District 3-6A schedule; but, St. Augustine had a better showing in a Week 5 loss against the Bears than it did a Week 4 setback against Bolles. Quarterback Sammy Edwards accounted for 364 yards and two touchdowns (one rushing, one passing) in last week’s loss. St. Augustine senior Anfernee Wilson didn’t find his way into the end zone against Bartram Trail; but, he was more involved in the Yellow Jackets running game in the second half, running nine times for 29 yards. Don’t be surprised if Wilson and senior Justus Johnson are heavily relied upon against a defense that allowed Middleburg to run for 228 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns last week.
