Fifth grade football player Drew Gleese scored two touchdowns Thursday in a big win for the St. Francis Flashes over Park Place Christian Academy.

The Flashes are a team built of fourth, fifth and sixth graders from St. Francis Elementary School. Last week was their first game of the season, and Gleese was the key player in the Flashes 25-6 victory.

Gleese’s biggest play of the game was an 85-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Walt Andrews to help seal the win. Gleese also played on defense last week as linebacker, and the Flashes only gave up one touchdown when he was not on the field.

Gleese is a fifth grader at St. Francis where he is a standout student. He will lead the Flashes onto the field Thursday against Copiah Academy.
