Let’s just say he was happy that the contest between the Rio Mesa and Pacifica highs football teams didn’t head into overtime.
“I’m pretty tired,” the Rio Mesa senior running back/linebacker said after the Spartans’ 51-42 victory in the Pacific View League opener. “But it’s a good feeling. That team (Pacifica) is quite a challenge. They do a good job with their offense, and they are capable of scoring a lot of points.”
Wrout starred on both sides of the football in the victory. He rushed for 124 yards and touchdowns of 41, 30 and 1 yard, and came up with the big stop of the night in tackling Pacifica running back Dennis Taylor for a loss that prevented the Tritons from posting the tying, 2-point conversion late in the final quarter
