Chaparral football players Casey Acosta, Richard Nelson, Antwain Allen, and Richard Hernandez (front) before the 2015 Season.

Richard Nelson had four touchdowns Friday for the Chaparral High football team in a 35-14 victory against visiting Sunrise Mountain in the Sunrise League opener for both schools.

Nelson scored three ways — rushing, receiving and on an interception return.

He rushed for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns, and caught a long scoring pass from Andrew Solis in the opening minute of the second half for a 28-0 lead.

Chaparral (2-1) plays Division I-A state favorite Desert Pines next week.
