INDIANS LOOK STRONG AGAINST FOOTHILL FROSH
TEHACHAPI NEWS - Outnumbering their opponent almost two to one, the Indians flexed their strength in numbers and talent to take down Foothill with four overall touchdowns scored on the afternoon. Leading the way for Tehachapi was quarterback Ryan Dalmas, who connected on a 20 yard pass completion for a score on Tehachapi’s first series. Brennan Davis added on a two point run after the score.
“We made a lot of strides just in this past week maturity wise,” said head coach Chris Olofson. “Foothill came in with a new coaching staff and a new offense, but it was good to have success against a program of their caliber.”
On defense, Robert Sigmund led the Indians with five tackles, while Luke Mears and John Cramer each had two tackles. Cramer also scored on a 44 yard TD run and Corey Russell added on a two point run. Austin Herman had a strong showing at quarterback, connecting on three passes for 26 yards. As a team, Tehachapi had 226 total yards, giving up only 165 yards on defense.
The freshman program is looking forward to building on their scrimmage play with a first look at school rival Garces this week.
“We stressed the importance of Garces and the rivalry that we have with them,” added Olofson. “We want to plant the seed early in their minds and have the focus on doing little things to have success.”
