ADAMS TWP — Myles Walker simply has the speed.
He will outrun anyone on the field.
His quickness is what helped him to score three touchdowns, three different ways as Central Valley (4-0) defeated North Catholic (2-1) Friday night, 35-14 at the Mars Athletic Complex.
“Coming into the season we knew a lot of people were going to be ranked higher than us,” Walker said. “Like today, we continue to fight every week and try to come out on top.”
The junior got his first touchdown off the opening kickoff, taking the ball 90 yards for the first score just 14 seconds into the game.
He followed it up toward the end of the first quarter with a 64-yard touchdown run, followed up by a 21-yard receiving touchdown in the second quarter.
“I think everybody is finding their niche for us,” Central Valley coach Mark Lyons said. “And like Myles, they're ready when their numbers called.”
Walker's first two touchdowns put the Warriors up 14-0 after the first quarter.
Early in the second, the Trojans got on the board off a 16-yard pass from Zach Rocco to Anthony Serventi to cut the lead in half.
The Warriors would respond with a touchdown pass for a 21-7 lead.
