Boston powers another Buena Park romp
BUENA PARK - Before the start of each season, Buena Park coach Anthony White tells his players that if they dream big and reach for the stars, no goal can be out of reach.
Deven Botson obviously listened.
The 6-foot-1 junior rushed for 241 yards and four touchdowns on 21 carries to lead the host Coyotes to a 35-0 nonleague victory against Schurr of Montebello on Thursday night.
Boston entered the game as the fourth-ranked running back in the county after gaining 178 yards against Cerritos in the season opener. He has scored 54 of the Coyotes’ 109 points this season.
“I have told everyone that he is one of the best backs in the county, and week after week, he continues to prove that,” White said.
Buena Park (2-0) isn’t winning because of Boston alone. The Coyotes have held their opponets scoreless through their first two games.
After Eric Perez’s 15-yard run, Schurr had first down at the Coyotes’ 20. Two plays later, though, Schurr committed a chop block and ended up punting from the Buena Park 40.
With 45 seconds left until halftime, the Spartans (0-1) had another scoring chance. This one was set up by a Buena Park fumble, giving the Spartans a first down at the Buena Park 37. But on the last play of the first half, Jaylinn Hawkins intercepted Rudy Madrid’s pass at the goal line and came within 10 yards of scoring his second touchdown of the game.
Earlier in the quarter he hauled in a 27-yard pass from Travis Hood to give Buena Park a 21-0 lead.
