imagesEL CAJON (09-06-15) — Few players at Mashin-Roth Field for Saturday’s (Sept. 5) season opener know more about Grossmont College’s rivalry with South Bay opponent Southwestern College than wide receiver SERGIO BAILEY.

“I’ll bet that I’m the only guy on the field today that can say they’re 2-0 in this series,” said Bailey, who played at Southwestern as a freshman in last year’s Jaguars’ lop-sided victory over the Griffins.

Bailey has since transferred to Grossmont and made a major impact in the Griffins’ 52-10 payback victory over the Jaguars.

Bailey caught touchdown passes of 17-yards from MICHAEL CARRILLO and 23-yards from TOMMY PISTONE, staking the Griffins to a 14-3 lead in the middle of the second quarter.

“I’m really happy here – love the atmosphere here at Grossmont,” said Bailey, who led the Griffins with 5 receptions for 67 yards. “The school programs are great, the coaches are excellent… can’t ask for anything more.”

Bailey was pleased to make an immediate contribution as he accounted for two of Grossmont’s seven touchdowns.

“Our quarterbacks just happened to see me in the clear, and what happened after that, happened,” he said. “It was all good.”

Three Grossmont passers completed 31 of 45 aerials for 436 yards and 5 scores. They were sacked only twice all day.

Playing less than half the game, Pistone completed 14 of 24 for 220 yards and a pair of scores. Returning starter Carrillo completed 16 of 20 for 183 yards and 2 scores. He also rushed for 38 yards on 5 carries.

“Most of the guys we have this year are sophomores,” said Carrillo, who passed for 2,387 and 10 touchdowns as a freshman. “It makes a difference. I feel more comfortable, more confident and understand the game better than I have in the past. Of course it’s nice to have a quality group of receivers like we do.”

Sophomore slot back CHRISTIAN BROOKS caught 4 passes for 29 yards but was more effective with his passing arm. He executed a flea flicker 32-yard touchdown pass to ANDRE PRICE that hoisted the Griffins’ lead to 35-3 early in the third quarter.

“We practice the flea flicker every day in practice,” Brooks said. “We were just waiting for a chance to use it in a game.

“We are a very confident football team right now but we have to stay humble,” he added.

Price cashed in 2 catches for 43 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Grossmont utilized 13 receivers. ADRIAN TOLBERT reeled in 3 passes for 58 yards including a 26-yard TD strike from Pistone in the Griffins’ 21-point second quarter.

Tight end LEVI BOYD (6-5, 240) amazed the crowd of more than 800 with 4 catches for 91 yards. It was after he caught the ball where Boyd dazzled the fans by bowling over several Southwestern defenders on each reception.

“They went to me a lot with passes in the first half,” said Boyd. “But I was more involved in blocking schemes in the second half. I don’t care how we get it done, I just want to win and that’s all that matters.

Not to be overlooked was the Grossmont defense, which smothered the Jaguars.

“Our defense is phenomenal,” said Griffins head coach MIKE JORDAN.

Secondary coach BRETT HUDSON agreed. “We were flying around back there and provided pretty decent coverage every time they went to the air,” he said.

Hudson credited AIRRIC PARKER for “being the glue of our secondary. He’s a man of motion and keeps our guys moving on every play.”

11911740_701320803335269_177268985534777416_oOther standouts in the Grossmont pass defense included DAVAUGHN MURRAY, DERRELL WHITAKER, TYNEIL COOPER and MAURICE CARNELL. Murray and Cooper had interceptions. JOE GORDON and CLAY CROMWELL recovered fumbles.

“All of us in the secondary are hungry for the ball,” said Whitaker who had 4 tackles including one for a loss. “Our secondary is way better than last year. If you look at us now, when the ball is in the air you usually see two guys around the receiver. We probably have four Division I guys in the defensive backfield.”

RUEBEN LEASAU and NICK GALATIS each logged 6 tackles.

Grossmont outgained the Jaguars 595-181 yards, and the Griffins did so while emptying the bench.

Griffins kicker/punter JORDAN REECE was 7-for-7 on PATs and connected on a 35-yard field goal.

A bad snap by the Griffins early in the game gave the Jaguars a first-and-goal at the 3. Although the score doesn’t indicate it, it was a huge momentum switch. The Jaguars tried three running plays but could only reach the 1-yard line and had to settle for a 20-yard field goal by Omar Hernandez, giving Southwestern a 3-0 lead.

Grossmont scored 52 unanswered points after that before Southwestern’s number three quarterback, Luke Napolitano, scored on a 3-yard junket with 7:08 remaining.
