KUSI’s #9 Bishop’s High School (9-0, 4-0) continue their unprecedented season undefeated after blowing out Orange Glen High School (4-5, 1-3) 63-14. The Knights secure the No. 1 spot in the Coastal League after Week 10’s victory, followed by La Jolla Country Day who is 3-1 in league.
Orange Glen’s offense was not able to withstand Bishop’s tumultuous defense in the first quarter, giving up 35 points. The Knights scored off of two pick-6’s: Isaiah Dawson’s 80-yard return and Michael Charrette’s 40-yard return. Amaan Banks also found a gap in the Patriot’s defense to go 20-yards for a touchdown. The other two touchdowns that quarter came from Hasant Moses-Hillman and Jeffrey Jackson’s connection to Jacob Jackson for 37-yards.
The Patriots were able to put up 14 points of their own during the last 3 quarters, but not enough to take down the undefeated Knights.
The final was 63-14 Bishop’s.
Bishop’s High School will travel back home next week to close conference play as they play host to Francis Parker (2-6, 0-3). Orange Glen will also close conference play at Horizon Christian Academy (3-6, 1-3).

PREVIEW: Week 10 of The Prep Pigskin Report brings you eye-catching match-ups all across San Diego County, including the showdown between KUSI’s #9 ranked Bishop’s Knights (8-0, 3-0) and the Orange Glen Patriots (4-4, 1-2). Not only is this the first time these two teams have ever crossed paths in CIF history, but it’s also the battle between two of San Diego’s top quarterbacks: Bishop’s Jeffrey Jackson and Orange Glen’s Blaine Bailey.
These two quarterbacks are ranked in the Top 3 of the San Diego section for most passing yards this season, with only a mere 7-yards separating the two. Bishop’s junior Jeffrey Jackson holds down the No. 2 spot with 2312 passing yards, and Orange Glen senior Blaine Bailey is right below him at No. 3 with 2305 yards. Braxton Burmeister of La Jolla Country Day holds down the No. 1 spot with 2370 yards.
What do these Top 3 ranked quarterbacks all have in common? They’re all apart of the Coastal League. But despite their offensive capabilities, all their teams strive defensively too. Bishop’s cornerback Mozes Mooney leads the Coastal league with 5 interceptions on the season, and is ranked No. 4 overall in San Diego County. On top of that, Bishop’s middle linebacker Justin Woodley has recorded 5 sacks so far this season, ranking him at No. 2 in the Coastal League.
Bishop’s continue their undefeated season into Week 10 after taking down La Jolla Country Day last week 37-21. With this win, the Knights also take control of the Coastal League as they slide into first place. La Jolla Country Day falls down to No. 3., residing one spot above Orange Glen.
Another player to look out for on the field this Friday night is Orange Glen’s Malachi Russell. The running back not only leads the Coastal League with 1167 receiving yards, but he leads the entire San Diego section, too. In retrospect, Bishop’s Jacob Jackson is ranked at No. 2 in the Coastal League with only 804.
Despite the Knight’s undefeated record, Friday night has high hopes of being a good game. Both teams are expected to be playing with a full roster, due to no injury report.
Make sure to travel on out Orange Glen High School Friday night to watch the Patriots host the Bishop’s Knights for the first time in school history. If you can’t make it, no need to worry. Tune into KUSI’s The Prep Pigskin Report for a full highlight real of not only this game, but all the games being played throughout San Diego County.
