Interceptions are a fact of life when you decide to play quarterback. Friday night, Newbury Park junior QB Cameron Rising thew his first pick in 342 attempts. The INT came on his second pass of the night against Westlake, according to Eric Sondheimer of the LA Times.
Rising, who’s given his verbal commitment to Oklahoma, actually tossed three interceptions on Friday, but don’t feel too bad for him.
With his team down by 20 points to Westlake in the fourth quarter, Rising rallied his team for a 43-40 victory. Rising ended the night with 210 yards passing and 127 yards rushing.
According to the LA Daily News, Jared Goff, the overall 2016 #1 NFL draft pick by the Los Angeles Rams, was at the game.
BTW…we did some Googling to find-out what the high school record is for pass attempts with an interception and we came-up empty. Let’s assume that Rising has the record or is pretty darn close to owning it.
Newbury Park is now 3-0 on the season, while Westlake falls to 1-2.
