The Jackrabbits have relentlessly proven themselves to be the best football team in the city. Last week’s 77-6 win over Lakewood means they’ve outscored five league opponents 332-19 this year. Senior quarterback Nolan McDonald had a special game against Lakewood, going 20 for 30 for 334 yards and four touchdowns, including one rushing. McDonald spread the ball around and tossed two fade route touchdowns to Darius Kryger, who also happens to be the team’s backup quarterback. McDonald has scored 11 touchdowns this season.
Mira Costa’s sophomore, who is now 5-0 as a starter, was efficient in a 34-7 rout of Inglewood. Vabrey finished 7 of 11 passing for 161 yards and three touchdowns. Vabrey and Mira Costa face their biggest test of the season Friday against Palos Verdes.
Comstock came up with yet another huge game when his team needed it most. The junior piled up 385 yards of offense and accounted for five touchdowns in Northview’s win over San Dimas, which puts the Vikings in great position to win the Valle Vista League title. The Vikings trailed early but used a big second half to pull away.
The 6-foot, 195-pound linebacker has been the sparkplug of the Conquistadore defense all season, registering 89 tackles, 19 of those for a loss. He has also forced three fumbles. Last week in a 33-6 Mt. Baldy League win over Chaffey, he managed 16 tackles. His showing has helped Don Lugo move into sole possession of first place in the league with two games left.
Pachot passed for a school-record 464 yards in Friday’s Citrus Belt League loss to Yucaipa. He also completed four touchdown passes, including bombs of 79 and 71 yards in the fourth quarter.
