Dontae Smith carried Spring Hill to a 35-18 victory over Columbia Academy on Friday night.
Smith, our Preseason Offensive Player of the Year for the Williamson County area, scored four touchdowns, as the Raiders built a 28-6 lead at the end of the third quarter.
Columbia Academy got within two in the second half when Blake Kleinke scored on a 58-yard run and the two-point try failed.
But Smith quickly answered with a 66-yard scoring dash.
Smith scored the game’s first points on a 9-yard run with 6:38 left in the first quarter.
Minutes later, Smith added another 30-yard scoring run.
A fourth Smith touchdown, this on a 7-yard run about midway through the third quarter, pushed the lead to 16.
