The Terrel Hunt show was on full display at Juniper Valley Park Saturday afternoon.
The Syracuse-bound quarterback threw for two touchdowns, ran the ball in for a 22-yard score and capped his afternoon with a 100-yard interception return for a TD to lead Christ the King to an impressive 38-20 win against St. John the Baptist (L.I.) in both team’s CHSFL opener.
“He’s Terrel and he did what he was supposed to do,” Christ the King coach Chris Higgins said. “He plays very good football and he’s fun to watch. Today was probably his best defensive effort I’ve seen.”
Derelle Hunter had 18 carries for 198 yards and Austin Kraft was 8-of-13 for 89 yards and two touchdowns for St. John the Baptist (0-2, 0-1 CHSFL AA-A). Darrius Pritchett and Jayvaun Smyer had touchdown receptions and James Coleman added a 70-yard kickoff return for a TD for Christ the King (1-1, 1-0).
“This was an all-around great effort,” Higgins said. “It justifies what we prepared for all during camp. It’s something we needed as a team. It was a big win, but now it’s back to work.”
Christ the King plays at Cardinal Spellman Saturday at 3 p.m., while the Cougars host Bishop Ford next Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
