CROWLEY - Put the ball in the hands of Teurlings Catholic quarterback D'Shae Landor and something special happens, even to those around him.
Landor passed for 263 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 103 more Friday night as Teurlings defeated Crowley 55-20 in a nondistrict contest at Gardiner Memorial Stadium.
Landor, a University of Louisiana at Lafayette commitment, led a Rebels offense that rolled up 348 rushing yards for TCHS (3-2).
"D'Shae did a good job of managing the offense and doing what we wanted. He's really playing at a high level right now," Teurlings Catholic coach Sonny Charpentier.
Teurlings scored on all but one of its first-half possessions as the Rebels bolted in front 34-7 by halftime.
Crowley (2-2) was outgained 396-147 during the first two quarters.
"Teurlings was able to get its running game going early," Gents coach Tommy Tatee said. "Our goal on defense was to stop the run and force (Teurlings) to pass, but we were never able to contain the run.
"I thought we let the game get away from us early when it was 34-7 and that was my fault. I'll take the blame for that.
"The big problem for us all night was (Teurlings') offensive front played so well and they controlled our defensive front and the line of scrimmage," he said.
Tate said he wasn't surprised at Landor's ability to orchestrate the Rebels offense.
"No surprise there. I've seen (Landor) play and we knew that he would throw the ball really well," Tate said. "He had a good night against us and we did not defend all that well."
Landor had an adequate supporting cast, with running back Zach Lafleur rushing for 116 and Nick Garber rushing for another 107, mostly in the second half.
"Spreading the ball around to different guys, we like to do that. We like to be balanced and overall I thought we did a good job with the offense," Charpentier said.
TCHS wide receiver Dylan Bossier had six receptions for 97 yards, while running back Devonte Jackson caught six for 81.
In the past three weeks, the Rebels have scored 182 points (a 60.67 points per game average).
Crowley's major weapon was running back Devante Bourque, who ran 16 times for 110 yards. Bourque, an LSU commitment, also caught a 67-yard third quarter pass from quarterback Andre Mills, to cut the Rebels' lead to 20 at 34-14.
In the first half, Landor scored on a 28-yard touchdown run for the game's initial score and then threw a 28-yard scoring pass to running back Phillip Vidrine to give the Rebels a two-touchdown lead.
A 20-yard Bourque run with 2:46 left in the first quarter allowed the Gents to cut the lead to 14-7.
Lafleur scored consecutive touchdowns on second quarter runs of 16 and 7 yards, while the Rebels ended the scoring spree with a 33-yard Cole Meche reception from Landor to give Teurlings Catholic a fifth touchdown in the first half.
