The Lee’s Summit offense is very much based in reality. It’s the production that looks like it came from a video game.
TheTigers did pretty much what they wanted to in a 49-29 victory over Blue Springs South on Friday night.
Quarterback Dalton Hill ran the show, and he made sure to include the entire offensive symphony. He finished the night with 375 yards and five touchdowns through the air, spreading the ball to five different receivers.
Hill also rushed for 91 yards and another score, capping a career game.

“When you have athletes around you like Sam (Buckner) and Somaj (Brewer) and all my receivers, it’s pretty easy to put up yards like that.”
Brewer caught eight passes for 159 yards and four touchdowns. Buckner kept the chains moving throughout the game, finishing with 12 receptions for 155 yards.
“I can look at Somaj and he can look at me, and we know exactly what we want to do and when we want to do it,” Hill said. “This man makes my job a lot easier.”
Three of Brewer’s scores came on a wide receiver screen that highlighted the Tigers’ level of execution.
“A lot of my touchdowns this year are on that. I give that to my O-line,” Brewer said. “A lot of those guys were out front blocking. I just go get it and follow my blockers.”
Blue Springs South, 4-3, was done in by some miscues on both sides of halftime. Lee’s Summit, 6-1, scored twice in the last 1:44 of the second quarter after a big punt return.
The Jaguars were 10 yards from answering on the first drive of the third quarter before losing a fumble. Lee’s Summit scored on the ensuing possession and never looked back.
“(The punt return) was a big play. It put them up two scores going into half, and I do think it gave them some momentum,” Blue Springs South coach Jon Oyler said.
The Tigers, who are No. 5 in The Star’s big-class rankings, have now won six straight.
