Brent VanderVeen had a field day Friday night, leading the Arroyo Grande High football team to a 35-14 PAC 7 win over host Pioneer Valley (3-3, 0-2).
VanderVeen passed for 361 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in addition to leading the Eagles with 35 rushing yards. The Eagles (6-1, 3-0) broke open the game with 25 second-quarter points.
“It wasn’t easy running the ball, we had to slug it out inside, but our offensive line gave VanderVeen plenty of time to throw all game,” Arroyo Grande coach Tom Goossen said. “With our receivers and VanderVeen’s quality and good choices, he has a good chance of connecting all game long.”
Garrett Owens was VanderVeen’s favorite target on the night, as he caught eight passes for 172 yards and a touchdown. Owens, also had two field goals and two extra points.
VanderVeen spread the ball around, as eight different Eagles had receptions, including touchdown catches by Grant Alton and Grant Talley.
Matt Willkomm, Tyler Auerbach and Joey Reeves had interceptions for the Eagles, and Seth Jacobs led the defense with six solo tackles and five assisted tackles.
