After completing a national record 50 passes in a section record 75 attempts a week ago, Trey Tinsley couldn’t avoid the spotlight. Turns out, he’s just fine when the lights are on him. The junior quarterback at El Toro threw a measly 43 times with six touchdowns as El Toro pulled even in the win column. Only twice this season has Tinsley thrown fewer passes in a game.
Score: El Toro 39, Claremont 10
Key Stats: Trey Tinsley completed 29 of 43 passes for 389 yards and six touchdowns.
Pivotal Moment: Less than a minute into the game, Tinsley connected with Dominic Collins for a 47-yard score on the opening drive.
