Tyrik Rollison finished 16 of 26 for 201 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 20 Tyler Junior College past Southeast Prep Academy, 68-7, in non-conference football action Saturday night at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.
The Sulphur Springs native passed for 186 yards and three scores in the first half to help the Apaches take a commanding 34-0 lead into the break and bounce back from last week's 38-30 loss to Kilgore. TJC (2-1) took advantage of the Spartans' sloppiness, which resulted in 17 penalties for 140 yards and minus 30 yards rushing on 33 carries.
Southeast Prep, which took on Lon Morris' schedule after the Jacksonville college dropped athletics, is a Houston-based school where athletes attend to improve their grades while still playing football. The Spartans have already been beaten 79-0 by Trinity Valley and 70-21 by Blinn this season.
The Apaches entered the break with a 34-0 lead against the Spartans, who committed 12 penalties in the half. Rollison took over in the second quarter, passing for three touchdowns.
He followed up a 50-yard TD run by Leroy Dobbins, which came with less than a minute remaining in the opening quarter, with a 27-yard scoring pass to Tracy Smith at the 12:54 mark of the second. Rollison and Jeremey Chappelle then hooked up for another pair of touchdowns to make the game a rout, the first capping a 13-play drive early in the second quarter.
Smith finished the night with seven catches for 89 yards, while Chappelle hauled in five passes for 75 yards.
TJC's ground game rolled out 293 yards on 41 carries, most of which came with the game out of reach in the second half. Dobbins led the way with seven carries for 100 yards, while backup quarterback Lamar Carraway stepped off 73 yards on seven carries.
TJC defensive back Robert Zenon intercepted two passes on the night.
