PREP FOOTBALL: Danville rolls in home opener against Peoria Manual

Sep. 9—DANVILLE — Senior Phillip Shaw IV scored four touchdowns — three rushing and one receiving — as the Danville Vikings blasted past the Peoria Manual Rams 58-12 in a Big 12 Conference football game at Ned Whitesell Field.

Shaw scored on runs of 18, 18 and 47 yards, while his second quarter touchdown reception from Darius Jay gave the Vikings (1-2 overall, 1-1 in the Big 12) a lead they would never relinquish.

Jay finished with two passing touchdowns, his second was a 72-yard strike to JaVaughn Robinson, to go along with a 2-yard run in the second quarter.

Seniors Caleb Robinson and Evan Yates got into end zone in the fourth quarter, as Danville scored 42 unanswered points on its way to a Senior Night victory and its first win of this season.

Manual's two scores came on big plays. London Tolliver had a 93-yard kickoff return in the first quarter, while Terrence Paige had a 81-yard reception from quarterback Amaree Breedlove.

Tolliver's kickoff return came right after sophomore Timothy Long made his first-ever high school field goal of 31 yards.
