When Holtville High School's Frank Lopez heard 45 lead and 28 toss and 29 toss come from his quarterback's mouth, he had a pretty good idea he was about to make something happen.
Those plays were the foundation to a career night the 17-year-old running back had against Imperial High on Friday as he rushed for 215 yards, scored four touchdowns and converted two two-point conversions, accounting for all 28 Holtville points in a 28-14 win over Imperial.
Lopez had a feeling his team would fare well against the Tigers.
"It hit me before the game that maybe I was being overconfident about it. But then I just talked to our (offensive) line and told them that if they blocked for us, we'd get the yards and points for the whole team," said Lopez. "And they went out and just did an excellent job. I knew I'd be able to do well because of the line. They're the reason we won."
