RBV’S RICHARDSON RUMBLES AND ROLLS TO SD CIF SECTION RECORDS

RBV CELEBRATES VICTORY OVER SANTANA

EAST COUNTY PREP FOOTBALL – SDCIF DIVISION III PLAYOFFS FIRST ROUND

By Adam Paul

VISTA – It was a déjà vu all over again for the Santana Sultans when it came to records being set against them in a game. Last season in the Division IV Championship game La Jolla Country Day quarterback Braxton Burmeister rewrote the record books for a career and also some season records.

Records again would fall as Rancho Buena Vista tailback Dorian Richardson would gallop up and down the field through the Sultans defense. On the night he would rack up an astonishing 499 yards on 38 carries of which he had 300 yards at the intermission. Not only did he break the yardage mark he also scored 8 touchdowns which set a new single game record.

The previous record was 455 by Erich Fredburg of Julian vs Midway Baptist back in 1989. That was set in 8-man football. The record in 11-man football was 436 by Ken James Jr. of Mount Carmel vs Westview back in 2009.

Richardson would score on runs of 3, 3, 30, 34 and 7 yards all in the first half enroute to a 34-17 lead at the break. Maybe the intermission would stop the insanity. Unfortunately it didn’t as Richardson picked up where he left off by scoring on runs of 44, 4 and 12 yards to build a 62-31 lead in the third quarter.

Between the two teams there was over 1,000 yards on the field and the fans in the stands definitely got their monies worth on the night.

“He was quick and very patient and picked up his blocks and put on quite a show.” Said Santana coach Tim Estes.

With the huge night the junior back is now at over 2200 yards on the season and over 20 touchdowns as well.

It wasn’t just the Longhorns setting records on the night. The Sultans actually had a record as well. Colton Snipes was able to field a kickoff at the 1-yard line and take it all the way to the house for the 99-yard score. The long kickoff return tied the section record and also broke the school record previously held by Jeff Woods who had a 98 yard return back in 2003.

Offensively for the Sultans, Josh Oedewaldt threw for 242 yards on 25 of 47 passing and two touchdowns and also an interception. He also scored twice on the ground.

Davon Chestnut hauled in 9 passes for 89 yards, Cameron Kane grabbed 7 balls for 61 yards and two scores.

Santana on the defensive side of the ball was led by Landon Wood who tallied 10 tackles and also scooped up a fumble.

Both teams with their 105 combined score moved into 7th in the CIF Record book All-Time for most points combined.

SCORE: #6 RBV 62, #11 SANTANA 43

RECORDS: RBV (7-5), SANTANA (4-7)
