Junior quarterback Austin Sutton had one of his finest games as Seymour’s quarterback on Friday night when he threw a career-high five touchdown passes to help the Owls to a 34-6 win against Jennings County at Bulleit Stadium.

Sutton, who completed 12 of 16 passes for 286 yards, threw three TD passes to Hunter Klakamp and two to Logan Richey.

Klakamp called it a team victory.

“Austin had a heck of a game. Jackson (Stuart) had a heck of a game, as well, and the defense played well,” he said. “It was real nice out here to win homecoming. We had a good crowd, a lot of energy, and we finally finished a game. We talked about finishing this week, and we really executed our plays like we wanted to.”

Owls coach Jeff Richey said, “Sutton had a nice evening. When we play with emotion, and when we play with some urgency, we do pretty well. It took us a while to get rolling, but we finally did. The touchdown right before halftime was big, and then to come back out and stick another one on right away at the beginning of the third quarter was huge.
