Leaving Las Vegas: Coyotes Torch Trojans, 59-35


(LAS VEGAS) – James ‘The Human Highlight Film’ Calhoun intercepted two passes, had an electrifying 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, and caught five passes for 75 yards and another 29-yard score to lead the two-time champion AAA SoCal Coyotes (7-1) to a dominating 59-35 road win over the previously unbeaten Las Vegas Trojans (6-1).

Bursting to a breathless 35-0 lead behind thrilling big plays from the ‘Brat Pack’ rookie class, the Coyotes’ one-sided thumping sent a message through the nation’s top-ranked LaBelle Community Football League.

The Coyotes — ‘America’s No. 1 Developmental Pro Football Team’ – secured the #2 playoff seed and ensured that at least half the road to an LCFL title will run through Palm Springs, and their intimidating ‘Win Den’ home field in the Anza mountains – where they are undefeated,

Rookie QB Michael Karls – who threw for 309 yards and three scores and ran for a fourth – connected on a 22-yard TD strike to Rashad ‘The Franchise’ Roberts on the Coyotes first possession.

Seconds later, relentless rookie LB and speed rusher Cade Cowdin picked off a pass and rumbled 24 yards for a score.

The ‘Darkside Defense’ punished Trojan runners and quarterbacks, and Karls obliged each time he got the ball back with a full display of Coyote weaponry.

Karls drilled a 29-yard post to rookie James Calhoun, then moments later fired a 55-yard dagger to rookie Stevie ‘Wonder Dog’ Will, who led all receivers with five catches for 111 yards.

Power rookie S back Andre ‘Let the Big Dog’ Hunt – a former Golden State Bowl MVP -thundered for a pair of eight-yard scores, and averaged five yards on nine carries.

KARLS FOUR TDs gives him 22 passing, three rushing and one receiving on the year for a total of 26.

ARIZONA STATE rookie defensive end Jake Sheffield played a commanding full game after returning from foot surgery, and had a sack, an interception, tackles for loss and five QB hurries.

UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI rookie linebacker Kelvin Cain had four solo tackles and three QB hurries.

NC STATE rookie linebacker Robert Caldwell had two tackles and forced a fumble.

THE 59 POINTS SCORED on the Trojans in Las Vegas were the most since a 90-9 loss to the Inglewood Blackhawks in 2011.

THE COYOTES FINAL GAME of the regular season will be on the road November 8 in Chino against the Southern California Eagles.

THE BELMONT HILLTOPPERS HAVE FORFEITED their November 2 game at Anza against the Coyotes. The Coyotes next home game will be in the LCFL playoffs November 15.

THE ‘WIN DEN’ – The Palm Springs-based Coyotes are undefeated this season at their Hamilton High home field, where they play their games 33 miles away in picturesque Anza. At the ‘WIN DEN,’ the Coyotes have out-scored opponents 203-70.
