City College of San Francisco remains undefeated after a dominating 61-0 win over Fresno City College.
Both teams were undefeated heading into the game, so the lopsided victory came as not only a surprise but a vindication of the teams hard work and talented roster.
Head coach George Rush was happy with his team’s performance.
“We came out and executed,” Rush said. “The offensive line looked really good today and the defense came out and pitched a shutout.”
Quarterback Turner Baty, who was wearing a knee brace after banging up his knee the previous week, turned in an stellar performance.
Baty spread the ball around throwing six touchdowns to six different players and ended up throwing for 358 yards.
“[My knee] didn’t bother me at all,” Baty said. “[The] offensive line dominated today. They played perfect.
On the ground running back Jahray Hayes rushed for 89 yards and one touchdown on 10 attempts. Clawsondy Cayo ran for 76 yards and one touchdown on only three attempts, and Daivon Ballard added in 65 yards on 10 attempts.
“[We’re] super excited to be undefeated but not content with it,” wide receiver Miles Gordon said. “We got to take it one day at a time and play City College style football.”
The defense played a near perfect game. Safety Shalom Luani lead the unit and had a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception.
“We came into the game feeling good,” cornerback Myles Holmes said. “It showed on the field and on the scoreboard.”
The Rams are excited to be undefeated, but it is nothing new during coach Rush’s tenure at City College.
“Yeah we’re pumped,” Baty said. “But we just have to keep it rolling [and] do what City does, keep winning.”
