Big-time Criminal steals school scoring records

    The big guys on the Yuma High School offensive line have opened the
holes and the little guy has been scooting through – and now the
Criminals have a new touchdown king!
    JC Baker,
a 5’6″ 165 lb. scat back started this season by setting a single-game
touchdown record at Yuma with seven scores – in just about every way
imaginable.  Five were on runs from scrimmage, another was courtesy of
an 85-yard return, and then one more came from a 10-yard pass reception
from QB Donte Jackson
This week he added three more TDs in a 48-31 win in the Criminals’ 5A
Gila Valley Region opener against Lake Havasu to establish a new school
career record with 36 – and counting!  Included in the senior’s
record-breaking performance was an 84-yard kick-off return for a late
score that put the game out of reach.  He finished with just under 250
    Jackson has returning wide receiver, Andrew Herrarte, to throw to as a primary target, but Baker gets his share of passes out of the backfield.  On the offensive line, only center Mike McAdams returns from last year, so Baker is working behind a group getting used to each other.
By the time the offensive line gets some experience under them and
really begins opening those holes for ‘Baker the Touchdown Maker’, the
Crims have a match-up with powerhouse Brophy Prep in the final game of
the season.  That should be interesting.
