Dylan Denney started the onslaught with an 18-yard run to stake the Gators to a 6-0 lead.
Two minutes later, quarterback Brandon Daley found tight end Zach Kelly for a 34-yard TD pass. Luke Dougherty kept the onslaught going with a four-yard TD blast and that was followed by Perry's fumble recovery.
The final touchdown of the first quarter was scored by Isaiah Bettis with 24 seconds left in the quarter and the rout was on.
Glenwood then scored single touchdowns in the second, third and fourth quarter and again three different players got touchdowns as the lead grew to 52-0 in the second half.
