Pitman High remains undefeated after a 24-6 win over Gregori High Friday night in the Pride’s first home game in the Central California Athletic League.

“They’re really doing a great job,” Head coach Tom Tyler said. “They’re working really hard and they’re buying into what we’re doing. We don’t have a bunch of depth, but kids are doing a great job of stepping up when it’s their turn. I’m really proud of them.”

The Pride (2-0 CCAL; 7-0 Overall) beat the Jaguars (1-1 CCAL; 4-3 Overall) — last year’s Modesto Metro Conference champions — with a record-breaking performance by senior quarterback Treyton Fair who, according to Tyler, broke Pitman’s single-game passing mark with a total of 264 yards, three more yards than the previous record holder Colin Kaepernick.

 The record-breaking performance comes just weeks after another school record, the single-game rushing record previously held by Anthony Harding, was bested by senior running back Jacob Partida.

“We’re just the little team that could,” Tyler said of the performances.

In addition to the yardage, Fair also notched two touchdowns as he targeted receivers Denzel Steckwren and Payton Bass. The remainder of Pitman’s points came by way of a Partida rushing touchdown and a Caden Speckens field goal.

Pitman must now prepare for Modesto High, a team Tyler coached against on a regular basis during his time with Turlock High in the Central California Conference.
