    Though Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson has said he would like his team pass about 50 percent of the time this year, the Commodores usually try to establish their running game first.
    But they threw a pass on the first play of this game and threw one on a first-and-goal from the 6-yard line for their first touchdown. Jonathon Flamion caught that pass from Lane Lynch.
