The Pigskin Idol Game of the Week takes us to a matchup between the host Francis Parker Lancers (0-1) and the Santa Fe Christian Eagles (1-0) in Week 2. These teams will face off at 7 p.m. this Friday night.
The Eagles are fresh off a win while coming out on top against the Christian Patriots last Friday night, 28-20.
Eagles’ running back Stephen Britton had a notable game last week as he racked up 130 rushing yards and one touchdown. You can bet Britton will look to make something happen this week.
The Lancers may have fallen short last week against El Cajon Valley, 13-7, but their efforts should not go unnoticed.
Lancer’s quarterback Gervy Alota managed to connect with Trevor Brokowski a handful of times last week while ending the night with a total of 70 passing yards.
May we mention that Alota is only a sophomore? Alota potential there, get it? No? Ok.
Week two should be exciting with both teams eager to make their mark.
