When it comes to Corona Centennial’s offense, the names change, but the results/stats seem to remain the same.

Friday night, I got an up-close and personal look at the Huskies against a very good Orange Lutheran defense that played well against Matt Logan‘s no-huddle offensive juggernaut.  After a 7-7 first half, Centennial’s Big 3 — quarterback Anthony Catalano, running back J.J. Taylor and Javon McKinley showed why they are the key cogs in a team that is currently ranked #3 in the nation in the latest High School Football America Top 25.  The Huskies are also ranked #1 in both our California and SoCal Top 25.

Catalano racked-up over 400 yards in total offense — 270 yards passing and 140 yards rushing — with one touchdown pass and one score on the ground.  For the season, the senior has completed 29-of-52 passes for 600 yards with four touchdowns.  On the ground, Catalano has run for 256 yards, averaging 7.3 yards per carry with two touchdowns.

Taylor, a University of Arizona verbal commit, has topped the 100-yard mark in each of the team’s first three games.  His three touchdown performance Friday gives him nine rushing touchdowns on the season.  For the season, Taylor has run for 412 yards, averaging 7.5 yards per carry.

And, then there’s 4-star prospect McKinley, who caught ten balls for over 200 yards and one touchdown against OLu.  McKinley, who had 95 catches last season, has 13 grabs so far this year for an average of 28.5 yards per catch with three touchdowns.

This Friday, Corona Centennial travels to Notre Dame in Sherman Oaks.
