Jerry Rice, Jr. turned quarterback this week, throwing for 117 yards, rushing for 135 yards and scoring three touchdowns as Menlo School knocked off host Terra Nova in the PAL Bay Division opener for both teams on Friday night. Menlo starting QB Danny Diekroeger was on the sidelines with a right shoulder injury. The only thing Menlo coach Mark Newton, a former Knights quarterback himself, needed to do was put Rice in a position to get his hands on the ball. Paul Schemel also got a chance to play quarterback, throwing a 30-yard touchdown pass to Rice. The Tigers scored on their first two possessions, taking advantage of two Menlo turnovers. Thanks to Rice's versatility, the Knights (1-0, 5-0) roared back. Rice's 31-yard run in the fourth quarter provided the winning points.
