Bishop Gorman vs. Chandler 2

Bishop Gorman High School’s football team takes the field for a game against Chandler (Ariz.) High School at Bishop Gorman Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015. Bishop Gorman beat Chandler 35-14.

The Bishop Gorman High football team’s fullback Alec Lazarou usually doesn’t receive many carries. Rather, he typically blocks for the defending mythical national champion’s stable of college-caliber running backs.

Today, during Gorman’s homecoming game against Durango, Lazarou got a rare carry close to the endzone. He responded with a 1-yard touchdown run, helping the Gaels finish off Durango 69-7.

“He’s been blocking for these guys for three years,” Gorman coach Kenny Sanchez said. “Glad we finally got him his first touchdown.”

Biaggo Ali-Walsh, Gorman’s dynamic junior running back, rushed for two touchdowns and 102 yards on just two carries. Quarterback Tate Martell passed for three touchdowns — two to Brandon Gahagan — before giving way to the second team, including senior Troy Wilewski, who rushed for a touchdown.
