Quarterback Sean Ashley played his first game since West Alabama and scored three rushing touchdowns. Jarvis Giles also returned to action, totaling 56 yards on 12 carries. FIT’s defense held Warner to negative-11 yards rushing and just 130 yards of total offense.

Quarterback Dallas Dickey, son of head coach Daryl Dickey, was one of six runners to carry the ball at least six times. He finished with a team-high 69 yards on 12 carries and was 6-for-11 with two touchdowns and two interceptions for 122 yards.

PLAYING ON THE BIG SCREEN 

FIT last played on TV Sept. 19 against its first-ever GSC foe in West Alabama and fell 45-3. The game was part of CBS Sports Network’s Division II Thursday night football schedule. On Thursday, it will look to avenge the defeat by winning its first GSC road game on regional television.
