The double-wing offense clicks North Hollywood High, which is 2-1. And nobody enjoys openings for the running game more than sophomore running back Jaylin Burt.
Burt, who gained 1,300 yards as a freshman, has rushed for 477 yards and five touchdowns this season.
“He’s one of those defenders with incredible vision and speed,” said coach Scott Faer. “He’s a bit shady and makes people miss him.”
At 5-foot-7 and 130 pounds, Burt isn’t the tallest football player, but he did run over at least one player in each of the three games, Faer said.
A big test comes Friday in an opening East Valley League game on the road against defending champion Arleta.
