For the first time in over a year, Maverick fans were allowed to watch the homecoming game in person, making for a special night. 

The team brought out the fan-favorite blackout jerseys, and the student section matched the attire. Homecoming is traditionally a blackout night. 

The scoring wealth was shared. Six different players scored touchdowns, including Evan Morris (‘22.) who racked up two while bulldozing through defenders. 

Not only did Morris play a crucial part in the run game, he also got to the QB fast on defense and got 2.5 sacks. 

“When we play fast, execute, and work as a team, the end results always come out positive. None of the touchdowns come without the [offensive] line going hard every single snap,” said Morris. 

QB Gavin Garretson (‘22) had a successful night as well, going 10/16, with 167 passing yards, scoring three touchdown passes. 

Garretson said, “We just go out and play our game. We executed on many levels, but have a lot to work on this next week.” 

On the defensive side of the ball, the Mavericks shut down Northridge, as Ka’ili Casco (‘22) put up six tackles, and an interception. 

The Mavericks take on Lewis Palmer on September 24th at home at 7PM, looking to remain undefeated.
