“Now we want to win out, we want to host a playoff game, and we want to advance in the playoffs. That’s our goal. To make the playoffs isn’t a goal, it’s an expectation.”
The Trojans have lived up to expectations this year thanks to a dominating running attack and a swarming defense.
That ground game piled up 363 yards against a short-handed Orchard View squad on Friday, including 144 yards on just eight carries for fullback Logan Six.
Six gained most of those yards on one play — an 81-yard scamper midway through the first quarter that put the Trojans on top 14-0. Six credited his offensive line for making the play happen.
“It wouldn’t have been there without great play by the line,” said Six, who also made a game-high 14 tackles from his linebacker spot. “The hole was wide open. When I cut back through the middle, I didn’t want to get caught, so I cut back to the right side a little bit.”
