ATLANTA — Jimmy Strom’s legs carried Pinecrest Academy to a record-setting day. The senior quarterback broke two of the school’s individual rushing records while leading the Paladins to their most offensive yards and most points in history during a 56-27 win against Mountain Vernon on Saturday afternoon at the Mustangs’ field. Pinecrest (1-1) finished with 464 yards of total offense, shattering the previous single-game program record of 387 that was set when the team was playing in the Georgia Independent School Association.
