He also led the league in scoring with 102 points, 16 rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown. His production was the force behind a Vista team that has scored 456 points in 11 games, an average of 41 per game, also the highest-scoring team in the league. Vista placed second in the Capital Athletic League, losing only one game to league champion Capital Christian."
