Fontaine “The Real Deal”

posted in: Football, News

Pusch Ridge improved to 5-1 on the season with a win over Catalina Foothills, in part thanks to a performance by senior quarterback Ryan Fontaine that had opposing coach Daniel Sainz calling Fontaine “the real deal.” From The Arizona Daily Star:

Fontaine feeling it

Pusch Ridge likes to switch between its senior quarterbacks Ryan Fontaine and Hayden Hallett, but sometimes, one of them just begins to develop a rhythm.

Fontaine got in that groove in Friday night’s 35-14 win over Foothills. He completed 9 of 16 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown while also rushing for 88 yards on 10 carries with three scores as the Lions improved to 5-1.

“That kid is the real deal,” Foothills’ Sainz said. “He keeps everything alive and he’s so gifted athletically that if you take your eyes off him a second, he’s making a play.”

PRCA looks to keep its momentum going this week at Sabino. The Sabercats (4-2) have bounced back from two straight losses with back-to-back wins over Phoenix Bourgade Catholic and Sahuaro.
