Typically, a 30-point victory is a cause for celebration and such a victory at the homecoming game might even be euphoric but not for the Galileo Lions offensive team who was limited to 13 snaps, partly due to Lowell’s run game, the Lions’ big play potential, and their very own, Jimmie Edwards. With a running clock in the second half, Edwards didn’t waste any time as he took the opening kick off and ran from the left hash to the right and then straight to the endzone to put the Lions up 30-0 and simultaneously taking away an opportunity for the offense to shine. Shortly after, another successful defensive series allowed Michael Duran to run 80 yards for Galileo’s final touchdown of the game. Lowell would take possession late in the third quarter and slowly churned their way to get on the board and capped that drive with a 2-point run just before the game ended.

Senior quarterback, Ronald Fox continued to show growth in his first season behind center by completing a career best 6 of 11 passes for 108 yards and 2 touchdowns, both to Reese Bickart (3 rec, 78 yds). Fox also chipped in with an electrifying scramble and sprint up the right sideline for 61 yards into the endzone. Running backs Jimmie Edwards and Yarvell Smith took turns zigging and zagging to help the 2-0 Lions amass 398 yards on the ground. Edwards tallied 107 yards on 6 carries, scoring twice and Smith continued his dominance with 170 yards on 12 carries including 3 scores. Fox joined the 100-yard club with 5 carries for 101 yards.

Senior QB, Adrian Poot put on a show at the Balboa Buccaneer’s senior game with touchdown passes to Reese Bickart (twice), Jackie Guo and Erasmo Rivas. Poot continued to lead the AAA as the most efficient QB by putting up a statline of 12/18 164 passing yards and 3 rushes for 29 yards and a TD. Sophomore RB, Yarvell Smith wasn’t too shabby as he continued to show what he can do now that he is no longer hobbled by a bruised heel-Smith is finally healthy and it shows as he carried the ball 10 times for 136 yards and 2 TD’s. Though Galileo’s offense is running on all cylinders, it’s defense stole the show with junior linebacker, Jimmie Edward’s helmet-dislodging tackle 10-yards behind the line of scrimmage and junior free safety, Michael Duran’s first interception of the season.
