Former Horizon Christian Academy Panthers Darren Carrington Jr. & Devyn Bryant Help Oregon Ducks & USD Toreros to Triumphs on the Gridiron
Behind the performance of six-foot-two-inch, 195-pound sophomore wide receiver Darren Carrington, the Oregon Ducks football team dogged the Washington Huskies by a final score of 26-20 in a PAC-12 ballgame played before an announced crowd of 69,285 at Husky Stadium in Seattle, Washington on Saturday evening, October 17.
Carrington, a former Horizon Christian Academy Panther, hauled in five receptions good for 125 yards receiving, and two touchdowns.
“Darren is a playmaker,” said 5-foot-11-inch, 201-pound Oregon senior quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. “It helped having him out there making plays. It helped with him on the field.”
Another Horizon alumnus, 5-foot-11-inch, 185-pound junior cornerback Devyn Bryant, recorded one, one, one, and two interceptions, respectively, for the University of San Diego Toreros against the Drake Bulldogs (27-0 win), Dayton Flyers (13-12 loss), Valparaiso Crusaders (38-6 win), and Western New Mexico Mustangs (45-21 win).
Meanwhile, 5-foot-9, 170-pound junior running back Donnel Pumphrey powered the San Diego State University Aztecs versus the Penn State Nittany Lions (37-21 loss), Fresno State Bulldogs (21-7 win), Hawaii Warriors (28-14), San Jose State Spartans (30-7 win), and Utah State Aggies (48-14 win).
Pumphrey, the son of Madison High School alum, Gina Padua, had 109 all-purpose yards and one touchdown at Penn State, 23 carries for 124 yards, and a touchdown against Fresno State, 197 total yards and three touchdowns at Hawaii, 207 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns at San Jose State, and 23 carries for 181 yards, and two touchdowns versus Utah State.
