Tyjon Lindsey returns in Bishop Gorman shutout win over Bonanza

Gorman Defeats Liberty State Champs

L.E. Baskow

Bishop Gorman’s Tyjon Lindsey (25) pulls in another pass for a score versus Liberty during their Division 1 State Football Championship game at Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday, December 5, 2015.

Bishop Gorman quarterback Tate Martell targeted top receiver Tyjon Lindsey twice Friday night against Bonanza.

Lindsey not only caught the pair of passes, but also took them both to the end zone in his return from a shoulder injury suffered last month to lead the Gaels to a 42-0 victory.

“He adds to our already talented group of offensive weapons we’ve shown the first few weeks,” Bishop Gorman coach Kenny Sanchez said. “Any time you can get that much talent back on the field, it’s a great thing.”

Lindsey’s return wasn’t the only major development for Bishop Gorman. The victory was also the Gaels’ first shutout in nearly two years, since they beat Liberty 50-0 in the 2014 state championship game.

Gorman, which improved to 5-0 in its first local game, plays one last national opponent next week when it hosts St. Thomas Aquinas.

“We’ve got a great plan for those games that we’ll put in tomorrow at practice and be ready to roll,” Sanchez said.
