NAVAL AIR FACILITY ATSUGI, Japan – Entering the 2016 season, Yokota coach Tim Pujol said he realized he’d have to get more out of his special teams and defense.

Four players who scored 54 touchdowns last season – all but three TDs – had graduated or transferred.

On Friday, Marquis Smith-Brown ran back a punt and an interception for touchdowns and Tyson Hamilton added a pick-six. The Panthers routed Zama 52-0, their third win this season over the Trojans, at Atsugi’s Reid Memorial Stadium.

“There’s no game that’s going to bear that out more than this one,” Pujol said.
