Simeon showed that its 0-3 record was very misleading, as it opened Red Bird conference play by routing host Lane on Friday.
With Simeon leading 14-7, Donnell Cockrell ripped off an 80-yard touchdown run for an insurmountable.
Cockrell paved the way with four touchdowns.
BY THE NUMBERS
Cockrell had touchdown receptions of 41 and 52 yards,a rushing touchdown of 80 yards and a 37-yard interception return for a score.
“It is hard being 0-3, but the kids never stopped working and we still are intent on reaching our goals. Cockrell is without question the best player in the Chicago Public League.” — Simeon coach Dante Culbreath
