Oak Ridge Varsity Football.

Ian Book

EL DORADO HILLS — Oak Ridge High’s varsity football program made quick work of visiting Vista del Lago Friday night, shutting out the Eagles in a 38-0 preseason route.

Sophomore quarterback Ian Book put in a clinic in accuracy during his debut, completing 15-of-18 passes en route to throwing for 259 yards and three touchdowns.

“Ian had a great game,” Trojan head coach Eric Cavaliere said. “His maturity and his poise are definitely beyond his years with him being a sophomore this year. His accuracy is very strong — I believe he only had (a couple) incompletions which, in reality were just drops. He had a great start.”

Book worked well with Oak Ridge’s two main receivers — seniors Jacob Sipes (five receptions, 73 yards) and Justin Priest (four receptions, 111 yards, two touchdowns) — a pair that have been working tandem for multiple seasons and have helped to shape Troy’s receiving core.

“They (Sipes and Priest) have been with our program the entire time,” Cavaliere said. “They are both great players. Sipes is a scholarship-level receiver — he’s already received an offer — and I would not be surprised if Priest gets picked up for his abilities as well.”

The Trojans played sound football from kickoff through four quarters, capitalizing on Vista mistakes early on. A 28-point first quarter all but put the game out of reach for Vista. After Oak Ridge scored on the opening drive — brought to fruition by a Book-to-Priest 8-yard touchdown pass, Vista went three-and-out, suffering a short punt that gave Oak Ridge fortunate field position. Running back Tanner Hughes converted the good fortune to a good six — blasting up the middle for a score.

Another miscue by Vista gave Oak Ridge another shot at a quick six and this time is was Troy foot soldier Josh Wellman who muscled his way in.

It wasn’t until Vista trailed 21-0 that the Eagles managed to gather a first down against the stout and stingy Trojan defense.

“I thought our entire defensive line played great all night,” Cavaliere said. “Austin Clark (seven tackles) kept good pressure on throughout the game. We knew that was going to throw the ball, so our secondary had to prepare for that. Victor Buntz really played well … he had several pass break ups and prevented them from getting momentum.”

Book found Priest later in the quarter, who broke a tackle and found open field to score an 81-yard touchdown. Oak Ridge capped off its touchdown production in the second quarter, as Book hit Ryan Sullivan on a beautiful 24-yard wire for six. Within scoring distance in the third quarter, Trojan kicker Adam Walter nailed a 26-yard attempt to round out the scoring.

Notes: Former Oak Ridge standout Austin Collie (BYU, Indianapolis Colts) was cut by the San Francisco 49ers over the weekend.
