MOUNT VERNON — Jaxon Gregory can relax and think about tonight’s Homecoming dance. Now that he had a record-breaking performance in Friday’s game against Mansfield Madison.

Gregory threw for 356 yards and five touchdowns as the Yellow Jackets rolled over their longtime Ohio Cardinal Conference rival Mansfield Madison, 62-20. It was the Jackets’ first Homecoming game victory in four years.

“I don’t really know what to think,” the senior said after the game. “I’ve never won a Homecoming game before.”
