'Little E' sparks Milton in big victory

TURBOTVILLE — He’s known as Little E, a nickname earned because he is the younger brother of former Milton star Donald English, and partly because he looks like he might carry 150 pounds on his diminutive 5-foot-7 frame.

The Black Panthers senior will never be known as Big E, but with a few more performances like the one he turned in against Warrior Run, he’ll escape the shadow of Donald — who helped carry Milton into the District 4 playoffs a couple of years — and simply be recognized as E.

English ran for 149 yards and two touchdowns, intercepted a pass to set up another Milton score, and added a long kickoff return to boot as the Black Panthers rebounded from a disappointing opener against Danville with a 61-21 rout of Warrior Run on Friday night.

Milton ripped through the Defenders for 419 rushing yards — a week after being held to 59 by the Ironmen — as Josh Brown (100 yards, 3 touchdowns) and Norman Whaley (104 yards and two scores in only four carries) also topped the century mark in the lopsided victory.

"My brother was, obviously, a great player, but I am just trying to be a captain and a leader for this team," English said. "I just want to have my own identity as a player."

His first touchdown came on Milton’s first possession after the Defenders had scored on a 25-yard pass from Hunter Raup to a wide open William Michael that cut the Black Panthers’ lead to 12-6 with 15 seconds left in the first period. English broke through the Defenders for a 24-yard score and less than a minute later, defensive end Clayton Messinger stepped in front of a Raup swing pass for an interception and 27-yard touchdown.

The interception was one of three in the first half for the Black Panthers. Coupled with a recovered fumble by Whaley, it created an uphill battle for the Defenders (0-2).
