LIVINGSTON — The University of West Alabama football team sent its 22 seniors out in style, hammering West Florida 45-7 on Saturday in a rematch of last season's Division II quarterfinals.

UWA needed a win to solidify its playoff position, and the Tigers got it, powered by the seniors and a season-high 304 yards.

A 75-yard opening drive for a touchdown by West Florida broke the scoring. That was the last time the Argonauts had the lead.

Senior Tyler Rogers took it in from two yards out for UWA's first score, setting a UWA school record for rushing touchdowns with 29.

Then Harry Satterwhite dropped a beauty.

The senior from Mobile, hit Bayley Blanchard for a 40-yard touchdown pass down the left sideline. The pass hit Blanchard in stride with a defender draped all over him and stretched the lead to 13-7. Blanchard finished with 11 catches and 122 yards with one touchdown.

“We ran a little stutter route and Harry put it right on the money,” Blanchard said.

Satterwhite wasn’t done.

His second touchdown pass of the first half was to another senior, Qua Boyd, from one yard out. A Jordan Bennett 41-yard field goal and a 3-yard Rogers run made it a 29-7 UWA halftime lead.

Derrick Underwood paced the Tiger backfield with a career-high 133 yards rushing.

“We felt like we could establish a run game,” UWA coach Brett Gilliland said. “At the end, when they know you’re running and they can’t stop it, that’s the most rewarding.”

The Tiger defense gave up 139 yards of offense in the first half and 75 of those were on the first Argonaut possession. Seniors Nicarius Peterson and Hillcrest alum Charles Bester each had an interception in the first half.

It was all Tigers in the second half.

Satterwhite threw his third touchdown, hitting Jonnas Spivey on an 8-yard pass. Satterwhite finished 20 of 29 for 193 yards and three touchdowns.

Senior Tevin Moore got in on the scoring himself taking it in from one yard out, giving the senior class a hand in all six touchdowns. Bennett added a 24-yard field goal for the final tally.

Senior linebacker Alfred Dickens intercepted a pass in the fourth quarter to give the senior class three for the game.

“It’s unbelievable, that class means so much to this university,” Gilliland said. “Most importantly the culture they’ve built is what I’m proud of.”

The Tigers will learn their playoff fate Sunday at 4 p.m. when the playoff bracket is revealed.

This will be the first time in school history UWA will go to the playoffs in back-to-back seasons.
