Fort Hamilton bounced back from its first loss of the season thanks to two long kick returns for touchdowns from Michael Brooks.

The junior had returns of 66 and 75 yards for scores in the fourth quarter to help power the Tigers to a 30–26 road win in Public School Athletic League City conference football last Saturday. Brooks had 155 total yards in returns. Sharif Legree completed 6 of 14 passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns. DeQuan Glover recorded nine tackles.
