To call El Camino Real (Calif.) linebacker Darian Cohen prolific is an understatement. All season he’s been a dominant force in El Camino Real’s (ECR) defense; now he has the single game stats to prove it.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, Cohen finished ECR’s 28-27 victory against Banning High with 30 tackles.
Yes, you read that correctly. One player had a season’s worth of tackles in a single game. As it stood, the Conquistadors needed that strong a performance, too: A late scoring drive put a scare in ECR, but Cohen still managed to come through when it needed, including the game’s final drive, when Banning was within a single point of the Conquistadors only to have Cohen’s colleague, Kade Schmidtz, block a would-be, go-ahead field goal attempt by Banning.
Yes, Schmidtz’ block was a clutch play, but it can’t compete with Cohen. Thirty tackles? In one game? That’s the kind of performance that pops up every so … never.
