Just because Everett High School (Mass.) had been eliminated from the playoffs doesn’t mean Mike Sainristil turned off Beast Mode.
In Massachusetts, teams continue to play until they have hit the allotted games they were guaranteed. Everett continued to play.
And Sainristil continued to ball.
He caught a screen pass, and his blockers held up long enough to get an easy first down. Then the defenders came through and the play looked like it was dead.
But Sainristil broke through a trio of defenders. Then he broke a fourth tackle. And then a fifth. Then he outraced defenders six, seven, eight and nine to the end zone.
