Silverado football players Quinten McKoy, Elijahjuan Brown, Termaine Givens, Daniel Macko, Zakee Washington, Vernon Jackson, and Devion Clayton before the 2015 Season.

Silverado notched its second shutout of the season Friday night in beating Valley 52-0 behind a relentless pass rush led by ZaKee Washington.

The senior had previously played cornerback but coach Randall Cunningham decided to tinker with his personnel and moved Washington to outside linebacker, where he tallied a handful of sacks.

“He looked like Jevon Kearse out there,” Cunningham said. “He just went crazy tonight. He really showed that he can play.”

He wasn’t the only Skyhawk to emerge against the Vikings. Cunningham also decided to break in backup quarterback Christian Baltodano, who responded by throwing three touchdown passes.

“He had a lot to prove,” Cunningham said. “I was just happy because I wanted to get to where we can use two guys, and have both be prepared and ready to play.”

Silverado’s usual stars got their usual production too. Devion Clayton caught two touchdown passes, while Keiko Misipeka rushed for four scores.
