It was apparent that Costa Mesa High School's defensive secondary read the scouting report on Los Alamitos wide receiver Rob Katzaroff before Friday night's game against the Griffins.
Unfortunately for the Mustangs, the preparation didn't pay off, as Katzaroff, a 5-foot 9-inch senior, had 11 receptions for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns in Los Alamitos' 34-13 win at Davidson Field.
Last week, Katzaroff had a dozen receptions, and according to Griffin Coach John Barnes, 10 of the 12 times the first potential tackler was unable to stop him.
"He's so quick," Barnes said. "It's tough to get a hand on him one-on-one."
Griffin quarterback J.T. Snow completed 12 of 22 attempts for 259 yards and 3 touchdowns. The game's first touchdown was indicative of how well Snow read defenses. From the Mustang 15, Snow called an audible and had Katzaroff run a quick rout against the deep-defending secondary.
