Although they played on an unusually scheduled day, the JV football team played as if it was just another day on the field. On Oct. 6, they routed the Mills Vikings 42-0, improving their league record to 2-0.

The first play of the game resulted in a touchdown from the 20-yard line by sophomore running back, Julian Morin, as the Scots scored within the first 15 seconds of the game.

“I wanted to come out strong, not thinking this game would be a roll-over,” said Morin, who was responsible for two of the six touchdowns. “Losing my confidence can affect the whole time, so it is important, especially going into the homecoming game against San Mateo that we keep our confidence up and keep grinding.”

The success of the team can be rooted to their coach, Bruce Douglas, who spends many hours a week coaching the team. Douglas revealed that he prepares for each game accordingly.

“The game plan was to hit the outside edges because we knew that they were going to clog the middle, so we knew that we could leverage our speed and get around them, which we did very well,” said Douglas.

Along with solid play-calling, the Scots prevailed through their defensive prowess, causing Mills to turn the ball over multiple times. The result, 35 points scored by the Scots in the first quarter alone.

Douglas said, “Our defense did great. Every time you get a shutout, you know you did well. Mills had some mistakes in the first half that we took advantage of, but other than that, no complaints on defense.”

Enjoying their second league win, players looked back at their success and how they have evolved as a team.

“Our chemistry has improved a lot. We have worked very hard to get where we are right now,” said sophomore Omar Zaro, who is responsible for two of the team’s touchdowns.

As Homecoming rapidly approaches around the corner, Douglas expresses his goals going into their upcoming game against San Mateo.

Douglas said,”Well, we want to win the league. Homecoming is a league game, so it is a really important game. We are two-fifths of the way there, so we are not overlooking San Mateo at all, and we look forward to it.”
