At Bakersfield Christian, scoring just isn't an issue. In their last five games the Eagles are averaging more than 52 points a game. "I don't have to worry about the offensive side of the ball," said second year coach Darren Carr. "I'm there to make sure the O-line and these guys are doing their best but Dave is nails."
Dave, or former number overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft David Carr, has the Eagles airing out most of their offensive plays. While the Carrs have no problem airing it out, this year it really makes sense.
"We talk about doing our job on this team and I feel like that was part of my job," said senior wide receiver Jeremiah Foster. Standing six feet five inches Foster is a big target but this year his stats have been just as big.
His 19 receiving touchdowns leads the Central Section but his big play ability doesn't end there. "He gets a lot of praise for offense but he really does help our defense a lot," said junior quarterback Braden Wingle. Exhibit A would be his performance in last Friday's semi final win over San Joaquin Memorial. Not only did he come down with 3 touchdowns, he also added 3 interceptions on defense.
As the Eagles hope to win their first valley title since 2013, Foster knows he'll be playing in a lot of double coverage. "I like one on one matchups but I like the respect knowing that teams know I'm a threat."
#1 BCHS will play for the D-III valley title Friday vs. #2 Tulare Western at 7:00 PM. It's the only football game taking place Friday night in Bakersfield.
