The junior cornerback returned an interception a school-record 102 yards for a touchdown, broke up a pass and recorded six total tackles to help the Roadrunners defeat Estancia, 17-10, to clinch the third and final automatic playoff berth in the Orange Coast League. “It kind of took the wind out of (Estancia’s) sails,” Saddleback coach Rob Thompson said of the interception return. “It was huge.”
