Monterey Trail rushing for tons are life staples



Off and running again, beware the Monterey Mustangs.

A year after going a school-record best 12-1, The Bee’s second-ranked team has overcome mass losses to graduation in the backfield to reload, regroup and unleash the veer run game.

Otha Williams rushed for 219 yards and four touchdowns to lead a rushing attack that generated 395 yards in racing past Spanish Springs of Nevada, 47-7 last Friday. Monterey Trail beat Sheldon 42-14 in an opener by rushing for 372 yards and five scores, including three by Williams, a junior.

The credit goes to the backs, certainly, and the offensive line of Andreas Argumedo, Jasdev Banwait, Mario Keanon, Daniel Ramirez, Lathun Snipes and Kelepi Talakai, the anchors of the program, according to coach T.J. Ewing.

The defense has been led by Marcus Jones and William Reyes, who combined for 22 tackles against Spanish Springs. Antonio Williams had eight tackles and returned a fumble 83 yards for a touchdown.

Said assistant coach Rick Arcuri, “This is a good group. They’re establishing themselves.”
