For four quarters Vincent Memorial High School's Jose Lopez was one of the most dominating football players on any Imperial Valley football field Friday.
In Vincent's 48-7 thumping of Bachillerato Universitario de Mexicali, Lopez rushed for 104 yards, had 72 yards receiving and reached pay dirt five times.
While he would like to think that was his goal heading into the game, in reality his performance was a surprise.
"I really didn't expect to do that well. Going in, I just wanted to score one touchdown. That's all I thought I'd get," said the 16-year-old junior. "But everything just went right for us. I saw that they had weak corners who were a little slow and I just tried to go to the outside and go after them."
Whether it was on the outside or the inside, Lopez had Bachillerato's number scoring on runs of one, 15 and 77 yards. His only two receptions went for touchdowns, one on a 37-yard reception the other on a 45-yarder.
