Beckman's O'Dell spreads the wealth
TUSTIN – Beckman quarterback Quinn O'Dell has a plethora of options to choose from when leading the Patriots offense.
On some nights, he goes to receivers Nick White, Alec Beggs and Ryan Sinking.
And if they're not available, running back Blake Crandall can also do some damage.
O'Dell spread the ball around to just about everyone Friday night as Beckman defeated Tustin, 44-7, in a nonleague game at Tustin High.
Beckman coach Glen Fisher said the game wasn't just the average game for his team as the Patriots and Tillers are forging their own Tustin-area rivalry.
“We were motivated this week,” Fisher said. “We've never beat Tustin and this is a rivalry.”
The motivation stemmed from Beckman's 0-3 record against Tustin before Friday's win, and it showed early as the Patriots jumped to a 22-0, first-quarter lead and never looked back.
O'Dell was a major reason why Beckman (2-2) came out on top in what is known to the teams as “The Rumble on El Camino Real.”
The senior was 9 of 15 passing for 268 yards and three touchdowns before exiting the lopsided contest late in the third quarter because of an injury.
Fisher said this type of performance is one he has come to expect from O'Dell.
“Quinn threw the ball great tonight,” he said. “He's quite the quarterback and we're very lucky to have him.”
Beggs finished with three catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
White also caught three passes for 122 yards.
O'Dell's third touchdown pass found Devin Aguilar from 11 yards.
