The blowout win was nothing new for the Falcons (5-1, 1-0), who are now 5-0 against in-state opponents and have outscored teams 246-89 during that stretch.
“Jackson has been doing really well,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “He is making a lot of people miss and breaking tackles.”
Quarterback Devon Mueller had another solid night, throwing two touchdowns — one to Tyler Jacob and the other to Justin Dunlap.
“We have so many weapons so we can do different things and surprise teams with our attack,” Redmond said.
But Foothill’s defense didn’t let the Falcons’ prolific offense do all of the scoring Friday night.
Senior defensive back Sean Hamilton intercepted Eldorado three times, returning one for a touchdown.
The win sets up a monster matchup against Basic (5-1, 1-0) on Oct. 22.
Following a bye week, the two teams tied atop the Southeast League standings will battle for the division crown.
“(The bye week) can be good and bad,” Redmond said. “I think from one perspective it gives us more time to prepare defensively for what they do, but offensively sometimes you lose your rhythm during the week off.”
