Jamhyr Gibbs scored another five touchdowns -- now with 34 for the season -- as the senior Georgia Tech commit led Dalton High School over South Cobb Friday night in its Homecoming game, 62-7.

Gibbs rushed for 170 yards on 19 carries. He also caught a two-point conversion in the win as he is nearing 2,000 yards on the ground in his final campaign.

Maurice Howard finished with two touchdowns on strong tackle-breaking rushes, while Luke Blanchard had a punt return for a touchdown and Brady Pendley had an interception return for a touchdown to round out scoring for the Catamounts (6-1, 4-1 in Region 6-6A).

"I thought our team played very well," Dalton coach Matt Land said. "We did a great job this week focusing on this team and focusing on what we needed to do to get better."

South Cobb's only score was on a kickoff return for a touchdown.

Land said he was happy to see Howard, who has been injured with along with multiple other Catamounts, play at almost 100%, while third-string quarterback Parker Adams handled the offense with composure in the win.

Dalton takes to the road next week as it travels to Sprayberry.
