Landon Perkins introduced himself to the end zone quite a few times last Friday night.
The Holly Pond senior scored five touchdowns — four rushing and one passing — during a 59-6 victory against Tarrant, helping the Broncos improve to 3-3 on the season.
Perkins registered 229 yards on just seven carries — a whopping average of 32.7 yards per tote — scoring from 56, 52, 45 and 55 yards out. The quarterback also completed 3-of-5 through the air for 48 yards, including a 20-yard TD toss to Nik Goodwin. He rounded out his solid performance with two tackles and an interception on defense.
No surprise — Perkins is The Times' Athlete of the Week.
Damian Raymond, meanwhile, recorded 101 yards and a touchdown on eight carries.
He added three tackles on defense.
Sawyer Olinger, Andy Light and Kadin Suryono also notched touchdown runs for Holly Pond.
Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is open to any and all local athletes.
