Senior quarterback Quinn Shanbour said the large margins of victory have given the younger players opportunities to get better.

“It's just an opportunity for us to get up quickly and let our second and third teams get in so they can get some reps and be better in the future,” Shanbour said.

The Chargers play at 2-3 John Marshall on Thursday.


Maybe the most interesting fact about Timberlake's 66-54 win over Coyle on Friday was that only six of the 120 total points were scored in the fourth quarter.

Behind Magnus Scott, Coyle jumped to a 22-8 lead in the first quarter, but Timberlake fought back behind Coy Troutt, who rushed for three touchdowns and threw for another.

Coyle managed only 12 points in the second half. Scott finished with five rushing touchdowns and another on a 94-yard kickoff return.
