Who are these guys?
They’re the 5-0 Stallion football team from San Juan Hills High, that’s who!
The Stallions traveled to Fullerton to take on the Fullerton High Indians (1-4 now), who were dispatched by the San Juan Hills boys, 27-21.
According to OC Varsity, most of the Stallion action came in the second half, and by the time the Indians responded, it was too little, too late.
Quarterback Jacob Gibson completed 18 of 26 passes for 296 yards, according to OC Varsity. Brad Kremer rushed for 126 yards and not one, not two but three touchdowns.
The team now ties its previous longest winning streak of five games, something it did in 2010, according to SJH athletic director Armando Gonzales.
San Juan Hills has yet to play a league game. The team will get its first chance Oct. 5 against Laguna Hills at home.
But homecoming is next. The boys from Dos Pueblos High (4-1 overall) are driving all the way down from Goleta, north of Santa Barbara. (Hint, the tailgate party starts at 5 p.m.)
While not breaking OC’s Top 25 (yet), MaxPreps keeps moving the team up in its rankings. San Juan Hills' national rank has jumped 1,105 spots (to No. 3,406) and its state rank has moved up 68 ticks, to No. 291.
Hey, it’s in the right direction.
And after reading this, we can kind of see why the top teams are held in such high esteem.
