Costa Mesa High quarterback Nathan Alvis topped 100 yards through the air and on the ground, and had a hand in a career-high six touchdowns in the Mustangs' 53-17 nonleague win over La Quinta, Thursday at Bolsa Grande High.
The left-handed junior threw four touchdown passes and ran for two touchdowns. He recorded 121 yards on 11-of-17 passing and 113 yards rushing on 17 carries.
Sage Hill School senior tailback Taylor Ross is inching closer to the school's single-season rushing record. After a 172-yard effort in Saturday's 56-13 win over Viewpoint, Ross is at 1,008 yards for the season for the Lightning (5-0). The record is Keya Manshadi's 1,060 yards in 2005.
Ross, averaging an even 12 yards per carry, is a good bet to set the record this week as the Lightning play at home against Pasadena Poly on Friday. After he was handed the stat sheet Saturday afternoon, Sage Hill Coach J.R. Tolver was yet again impressed.
