It was also a productive week off the field for Wilson, who picked up offers from Nebraska and Utah, and Wright, who added Washington to his long list of Power Five offers.
SCCS thriving with new wrinkleCardinals quarterback Blake Kirshner’s eyes grew wide with excitement Saturday when asked about the impact of sophomore running back Lucas Pettee after the team’s 42-0 win over Capistrano Valley Christian. “He’s keeping them honest,” said Kirshner, who threw for a season-high 412 yards in the win.
Working mostly out of the spread, Pettee has put up at least 100 yards on the ground in four of the team’s last five games. It’s likely not a coincidence that all three of the Cardinals’ 40-plus point efforts this year have come during those games.
