The words '39 toss' or '37 toss' put a smile on Heritage Hall running back Barry J. Sanders' face.
When that call came in from the sideline on the second play Friday against Tulsa NOAH, Sanders did what he's done for most of the season.
He got around the outside, cut back through the middle of the field and 73 yards later, the Chargers were on their way to a 52-34 victory.
"It was good to set the pace and get the defense a little worried," Sanders said. "It kept going from there."
Two drives later, and the call came in again. This time, Sanders raced down the sideline for a 72-yard score. Before he left the game in the third quarter, Sanders scored three more touchdowns and finished with 313 yards on only 13 carries.
At one point, Sanders scored three touchdowns in four carries.
"They're just simple tosses and let Barry do his stuff," Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said. "... Just let him go. You don't coach that, you just let him go."
Even when Sanders wasn't scoring, the threat of him touching the ball helped the Chargers (5-0) put more points on the board. Sanders took a reverse handoff in the second quarter before flipping it to wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who found Chedon Shockley in the end zone.
Later, Heritage Hall quarterback Cooper Cloud faked a handoff to Sanders before connecting with tight end Quintaz Struble for another score.
Sanders scored his fourth touchdown by weaving back through the defense on the play that has been a success for nearly three years.
"It's been working for me since freshman year," Sanders said. "I've had a lot of success with it. No one has been able to stop it consistently and that's something you want to keep doing. Hopefully, we'll have success with that in the future."
