Freshman QB Jayden Daniels threw four touchdown passes during Cajon’s 42-7 win over Kaiser on September 11.

Freshman Jayden Daniels has made quite the impression after his first three games as the starting quarterback for the Cajon football team.

Daniels took his performance to a new level in a match up with Kaiser, scoring four touchdowns while completing 16 of 25 passes for 300 yards in a 42-7 rout on Friday, September 11.

Cajon (3-0) found the end zone on its first three possessions and raced out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Cowboys recovered an onside kick on the opening kickoff which led to a quick three-play drive highlighted by a 43-yard touchdown pass from Daniels to Elijah Lilly.

With the Kaiser (1-1) offense unable to generate a first down in its first two possessions, Cajon capitalized with 65 and 63-yard scoring drives. Senior Wilbur Murray, who carried the ball 19 times for 110 yards, capped off both drives with touchdowns from 2 and 7 yards out.

As time was winding down in the second quarter, Cajon went for what was essentially the back-breaking score. Daniels guided the offense 80 yards in 62 seconds, including a 15-yard touchdown connection with Phillip Ryan to make it 28-0 with 47 seconds left before halftime.

It was billed as showdown between two high-powered offenses but the Cowboys defense held the Kaiser offense in check most of the game with the exception of one scoring drive late in the third.

Cats quarterback Tyreque Jones never found room and finished the game with minus-27 yards rushing while star running back Joshua Johnson was limited to 75 yards on 15 carries.

Dawson3Daniels connected with Gionvanni Daniel and Tyrone Gasaway for 15-yard and 39-yard touchdown passes in the second half.

Cajon has a bye week before playing Eisenhower on September 25. Kaiser will look to rebound at Valley View on September 18.
