If there has been one measure of consistency on the Vincent Memorial High football team this year, it has been Juan Roman Lopez.
Lopez has been one of the top offensive threats in the Imperial Valley as a Vincent running back and has been one of the area's most stubborn defensive backs.
On Friday Lopez turned in one of his best games of the year in one of the biggest games of the season as he recorded three touchdowns, two interceptions and totaled 160 yards of offense in the Scots' 38-6 pounding of Horizon in a CIF San Diego Section Division IV quarterfinal matchup in Calexico.
"Horizon was a tough team … they had a lot of talent. Going into the game their players looked tall and fast, so I expected the game to be a little more difficult.," said the 18-year-old Lopez, recently named as the Desert Mountain League's first team running back and cornerback. "But we studied the film on them and played them hard. We played at 100 percent on the field. So in general, I think we did pretty good."
