On a week when Lindbergh High School celebrated its 40th anniversary; the football team added a homecoming victory with a win over Foster 33-0 Friday night at Renton Stadium. Senior Prince Cameron Callen scored three touchdowns from 9, 14 and 39 yards out, bringing his total for the season to nine. Quarterback Tyrell Shavers threw for four touchdowns.
Head coach Pat O’Grady told the team at halftime (leading 21-0) it was time to play Eagle football. This wasn’t a just show up and win, he said. The team returned to the field more focused, and the offensive line was able to open holes for running back Daniel Wittenan and allow quarterback Tyrell Shavers more time to throw the ball down field. In the first half Shavers was sacked several times when he was forced out of the pocket.
