Collins, Kinner help Navarro take bite out of GMC, 50-30

CORSICANA, Tx — Sophomore Austin Collins caught three touchdown passes from
quarterbacks Carson Earp and Bivins Carraway, and sophomore running back Keaun
Kinner rushed for three touchdowns as No. 8 Navarro defeated No. 5 Georgia
Military at Tiger Stadium.

Navarro withstood five lost fumbles — including four deep in its territory during the second half — to secure its 10th straight win over GMC in a 16-game series dating back to 1991.

GMC cashed some turnovers into quick points and stormed back from a 29-6 halftime deficit within six points (36-30) with 6:41 left before Collins and Kinner made final big scoring plays.  A total of 24 GMC points came via Navarro turnovers.
