Quarterback John Jaramillo scored four total touchdowns to lead Southwest to a 41-7 win over Miami High Thursday night at Curtis Park.
"I had a terrible first half, but we came back in the second half. I am glad my receivers made some big plays," Jaramillo said.
Jaramillo started the game cold passing for 11 yards and an interception in the first half. His three touchdown passes came on consecutive throws in the fourth quarter. All three scores were to different targets; Derek Gonzalez (41 yards), Manuel Iglesias (20 yards) and Amir Rivera (63 yards). Jaramillo passed for 123 yards.
Te'Corey Tutson returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a Southwest (2-0) touchdown. In the third quarter he scored on a 12-yard run. Tutson now has six touchdowns this season after scoring four last week in a 70-0 victory over Coral Park.
Never miss a local story.
The lone Miami High (0-2) touchdown came on a 3-yard run by Willie Stewart in the second quarter. He finished with 46 yards on nine carries.
"We need to be consistent and not start slow. We need to start fast and not let-up," Tutson said when asked what Southwest needs to do going forward.
Freshman running back Andre Stringfield only rushed for 28 yards on eight carries and had two touchdown brought back on penalties. Last week, Stringfield rushed for 152 yards and scored four touchdowns.
