When first-year Coach Bob Dunivant took over the football program at Burroughs High, he wanted to get off to a good start because he was inheriting a team that went 4-7 last year.
He had help. His opponents to start the season Thursday night were a winless bunch that were 0 for 1985.
Burroughs dominated Glendora in every category and posted an easy 28-13 nonleague victory at Citrus College.
“I’m happy with our progress,” said Dunivant, who watched his team roll up 362 yards of total offense. I think the team has a lot of potential, but we need to work more on our pass blocking.”
Indian quarterback Jeff Barrett completed 13 of 19 passes for 232 yards, including a touchdown and two interceptions. Jason Applegate led Burroughs in rushing with 68 yards on 6 carries, including a 55-yard run on the first play of the game.
The Indians opened the scoring 45 seconds into the second quarter when Barrett connected with wide receiver Brian Kaloustian on a 52-yard touchdown pass. Todd Pam’s extra point made the score 7-0.
Glendora came back on its next possession and drove to the Indian 33. Glendora quarterback Brent Gunstream threw a desperation third-down pass toward the sidelines. But Indian linebacker Scott Pavkovich intercepted the errant throw and raced untouched 77 yards down the sideline for a 14-0 lead.
Burroughs added another touchdown at the close of the first half on a one-yard run by Barrett.
