Orlando, FL (AP) - Randy "Duke" Johnson scored five touchdowns as Miami Norland defeated Crawfordville Wakulla 38-0 in the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 5A football finals.

Johnson scored four rushing touchdowns Friday, adding a 69-yard kickoff in the second quarter to put Norland up 23-0 at halftime. His final carry was a 40-yard touchdown run.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound running back had 130 yards rushing and 54 yards receiving.

Norland (15-0) was equally good on defense as the Vikings yielded just 58 yards and five first downs to an overmatched Wakulla (12-3) team.

Quarterback Tony Thomas was 9-of-12 for 125 yards while wide receiver Darren Owi caught four passes for 69 yards. Deonte Hutchinson led Wakulla with two catches for 25 yards while linebacker Tamrick Holmes had a game-high 14 tackles.
