There's nothing complicated about the St. Paul High School football team's offensive scheme, but when you run the ball like the Swordsmen, keeping it simple is all that matters.
St. Paul proved it Friday, using a solid rushing attack with some big pass plays from quarterback Paul Telles and two interceptions by Marcus Garcia for a 24-7 victory over visiting La Mirada.
SANTA FE SPRINGS - Sometimes big problems call for big solutions, and you don't get much bigger on the high school level than 6-foot-2, 282 pounds.
That's the average height and weight of the St. Paul football team's offensive linemen, who are at the heart of the Swordsmen's resurgence this season and will be key to the team's chances in Friday's 7:30p.m. home game against Chaminade (8-1 overall, 3-1 in league), ranked No. 18 in the CIF-Southern Section by calpreps.com.
