Hinsdale Central 31, Proviso West 0


No. 23 Hinsdale Central scored three touchdowns on its first nine plays from scrimmage and rolled to a 31-0 victory over visiting Proviso West in the West Suburban Silver Friday night.


With starting quarterback Dennis Bryant Jr. out due to a concussion, Proviso West started Bryon Jackson. He lasted three series before getting replaced by Denzel Tolliver. But the Panthers (1-3, 0-2) had only minus-3 total yards in the first half and could not threaten.


Hinsdale Central senior quarterback Jacob White made his starting debut for injured Chase Hamilton, who is out for the season with a broken right ankle. But White could not play in the second half after injuring his left ankle while playing linebacker. Before leaving, White scored two TDs on runs of three and 70 yards and had 148 yards rushing on 10 carries. 


Each team was down to its third quarterback. White did not complete a pass, missing all three attempts, and backup Ben Stefani did not attempt one. The Devils (3-1, 2-0) also used  a third QB in the game, junior Sam Saltiel, late in the fourth quarter.


“We are a little one-dimensional, but we will work on things in the future.” —Hinsdale Central coach Rich Tarka
