Ross Johnson Head Football Coach at Fallbrook: “Leading 14-0, we got off to a good start, we ran the ball effectively, we had a 21-0 score which helped our squad.” Our offense had a nice drive to go up 21-7, which kept us in the game and gave our players momentum.” “Alex Rico is a good player for Santana he did good and played with a lot of composure. Our defense played well against him with some sacks and batting the ball down. Evan Thomas threw the ball 3 times in the first half while leading and for the game winning touchdown. Grant Hall scored and did a real nice job of reading his blocks.”
