What a Week! In Two Words - DEFENSIVE DOMINANCE
Rivalry vs. Mira Mesa was awesome. Our freshmen walked away with a 27-0 victory. Our JV won 55-0. And our varsity went across the freeway to take the "Battle of the 15" trophy with a 17-7 victory. Here are a few highlights from Friday's game.
Carter Foss led the team with 10 tackles as our defense shutout it's third opponent (Mira Mesa's seven points came from an interception returned for a touchdown). In four games, our defense has only given up 10 points (2.5 points per game).
Led by defensive coordinator John Taylor, they are dialed in and leading the team each week with amazing performances. DID YOU KNOW? Coach Taylor is a long time Scripps Ranch resident, but he teaches at Mira Mesa High School and was the previous defensive coordinator for the football team. That made the defensive shutout even more sweet.
