Gunn came up with a solid defensive effort but fell short on the offensive side, dropping a 14-6 nonleague game to visiting Lincoln (San Francisco) to open the 2008 high school football season on Friday night on its new $1.5 million FieldTurf facility. The Titans hurt themselves by three bad snaps out of the shotgun formation, resulting in a combined 67 yards loss. That contributed to a final total of just 14 rushing yards and 107 total yards on the evening. Defensively, Gunn played well despite allowing 135 rushing yards by Lincoln’s Eric Beverly, who carried 31 times and scored both touchdowns. His second TD came after Gunn had closed to 14-6. Following a high snap that went over the head of Gunn quarterback Danny Luskin, the Mustangs recovered. Beverly rushed twice for 16 yards before scampering 25 more for the final points with 6:05 left to play. Gunn still had time to rally for a tie, but eventually fumbled the ball away. The Titans’ defense held, giving the offense one more chance with 2:22 remaining. Luskin threw three straight incompletions and then Nikko Jackson gained just one yard on a draw play, ending Gunn’s chances. The Titans’ lone score came on a 16-yard run by Maceo Parks in the third quarter.
