Keith Ginter

September 21, 1993

Fullerton, Sr.

Football / Receiver-linebacker

Ginter was virtually Fullerton's entire offense in a 40-15 victory over Whittier California--even when he wasn't playing offense. He scored five of its six touchdowns, the first on a nine-yard run. He then caught touchdown passes from Christopher Young of 31, 26 and 52 yards and returned an interception 63 yards for a touchdown. Coach Julian Smilowitz said they don't do anything special to get him the ball. "We try to get it to whomever is open and he happened to be open," Smilowitz said. "He'll get the most out of the situation, I know that."
