Big plays mean big wins for Poly: '4th and Forever' Friday Night Rewind
Football may be a team game, but in order to win big you need big-time plays from your big-time playmakers.
Thanks to outstanding individual efforts on both sides of the ball, Long Beach Poly got all that and more in last week's episode, claiming three critical wins in league play.
Running back Keltain Malveaux showed off his strength and his speed as he burst through the line and then cut down the sideline for a 60-yard score against Wilson High.
Malveaux, who finished the day with 2 TDs and 115 yds. on 5 carries, lead the Jackrabbits to a 48-7 win in front of the home crowd at Veterans stadium.
At Cabrillo High, Dabness Atkins finally nabs his first-interception of the season with an over-the-shoulder catch that has everyone impressed, including his teammates.
Atkins said he was happy to finally get my first pick and get the weight lifted from his shoulders.
"A-Raw was giving me mess on the sidelines saying, 'How you gonna catch the hard ones and drop the easy ones right in your hands?'"Atkins said. "I don't know. I just wanted that one. I guess I like the challenge."
Jerimiah Hollowell helped carry the Jackrabbits to their sixth win in a row against Compton High in the final league game of the season.
Hollowell showed why he is force to be reckoned with as he rumbled past the goal line and straight into the end zone.
"I had to get the ball because: 1. I am a train; 2. I am the beast; and, 3. I am a monster," Hollowell said.
