The Alemany Warriors showed its fans why the team is a strong contender for the Mission League this season, beating the Garfield Bulldogs 61-7 in its season opener.
The Warriors starting the game with a three-play touchdown drive, capped off as sophomore starting quarterback Brevin White connected with his receiver Johnny Edwards for a 34-yard touchdown. That first drive would foreshadow the remainder of the game as Alemany rolled to an easy victory through the arm of Brevin White and strong linebacking core led by Darian Cohen and Lamin Touray.
Garfield’s defense had no answers for a loaded Alemany receiving core, led by Aldo Giammanco, Johnny Edwards, Cayden Dunn, Marcel Myers and Jarrin Pierce, who was extremely effective on special teams as a punt returner.
The Warriors’ receivers created many breakout plays, including a 71-yard touchdown catch by Dunn and a 33-yard touchdown by Pierce in which Pierce had to make an incredible spin move and superman dive earning him video post by bleacher report.
Quarterback White showed off his impressive arm, throwing for 274 yards and five touchdowns on 12 of 21 passing. White, who is the younger brother of former Hart High and current Arizona State quarterback Brady White, also added a score on the ground, dangerously flipping into the end zone for a sixth touchdown. White currently holds two offers from Arizona State and Washington State.
Alemany senior corner back Brian Barry grabbed an interception in the third quarter, returning it to the one-yard line that helped set up a one-yard touchdown run from Cohen.
Alemany’s next game will be versus Colony in the highly anticipated Honor Bowl.
