The theme for today’s game between Tokay at West is who’s going to win their first TCAL game of the season. Tokay (0-1 in the TCAL, 0-6) travels to the west side of San Joaquin County to face West (0-1 in the TCAL, 2-4).
A trio of sophomores are helping the Tigers find consistency on offense. That starts with quarterback Jacob Varney, who was moved up to the varsity squad earlier this season. He has completed 28 of 66 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns. His rapid growth of maturity on the field has impressed Tokay coach Michael Holst.
“We have been pleasantly surprised with Jacob,” Holst said. “He has been consistent in his leadership and progress at quarterback. For a guy we had no intention of playing varsity this year, he’s done very well in some tough circumstances.”
