In his first game since suffering a fracture in his left (non-throwing) forearm, Oklahoma State quarterback commit Luke Del Rio promptly got his team on track to its first win of the season.
Valor Christian, in the Denver area, suffered a pair of one-point losses to start the year, but Del Rio and the offense posted 35 quick points in Friday's first quarter on the way to a 42-0 win over Heritage of Littleton, Colo.
Del Rio, the son of Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, was 14 of 21 passing for 173 yards and two touchdowns. One of the touchdown tosses went to Christian McCaffrey, the son of former Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey.
Morrow helps Emporia to fast start
Emporia, Kan., athlete Jerel Morrow was a big-play machine Friday night, helping his team to a 50-14 win over Highland Park.
The OSU commit had four catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half.
He had an 85-yard TD catch in which he out-jumped two defenders at midfield and broke free for the score. Morrow, 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, added another leaping TD catch in the second quarter.
