HUDSON, Florida - Pasco senior star Janarian Grant, playing in his first game of the season, made a smashing debut Friday night, helping lead the Pirates past the Fivay Falcons 54-20.
Any doubt about Grant being ready to play after missing the first six games of the year from a preseason injury were quickly dispelled when he returned the games opening kickoff 91 yards, untouched, for an apparent score. A Pasco penalty nullified the touchdown, but Grant scored a few plays later on a 12-yard run, as his amazing night was just getting started.
Grant would score five touchdowns in the game in a variety of ways, including two touchdown runs, a pass for a score, a reception for a TD, and even an interception he returned into the endzone.
Pasco (7-0, 5-0) now sits alone at the top of Class 5A, District 6, while Fivey (5-2, 4-1) faces Zephyrhills (5-2, 4-1) in a game that will decide the district runnerup.
