The Titans remained in a second-place tie in the SCVAL El Camino Division with a solid victory over Santa Clara at Buchser Middle School on Friday night. Gunn improved to 4-1 in league (6-3 overall) but still trails first-place Los Altos (5-1, 6-3), which knocked Monta Vista out of the title picture with a 35-14 victory.

However, it was the Gunn underclassmen of juniors Josh Jackson, Henry Ayala, Anthony Cannon, along with sophomore Casey Jackson, that helped make the difference on this night. Of course a few key plays by Gunn senior Maceo Parks and the tough running of Jonathan Godoy helped clinched the Titans' first winning season since a six win campaign in 2003.

As has been the case in all six Gunn wins, the Titans earned it on the ground as they rushed for a season-high 395 yards on 48 carries. Josh Jackson gained 100 yards on 13 carries while Godoy had 78 yards on 14 hauls, Cannon added 77 yards on eight runs from his quarterback position, Parks added 72 yards on just three carries, and Casey Jackson had 64 yards on 10 carries to lead the way.
