David Peterson scored touchdowns on a run and two receptions and set a school record for receiving yards in a game Friday afternoon as Boys’ Latin defeated Martin Luther King, 30-6, in a Public League Class AAA football game at Germantown.
Buoyed by a 75-yard touchdown pass down the middle of the field with four minutes to play, Peterson caught two passes for 124 yards.
That surpassed the three-year-old program’s record of 105 yards, set by Terron Fuller in 2010.
Boys’ Latin improved to 6-1 overall, 6-1 in the league. King fell to 0-7, 0-7.
Peterson’s other catch was a 49-yarder in the third quarter that gave the Warriors an 18-0 lead.
In addition, he had an interception as a linebacker. William Tucker and Joe Parks also picked off passes for Boys’ Latin.
Peterson opened the scoring with a 9-yard run off a reverse. Tahir Perlote stretched the lead to 12-0 in the second quarter on a 7-yard run.
Eric Lark threw three touchdown passes for the Warriors. His 10-yard connection with Chris Hudson in the third quarter put Boys’ Latin up, 24-0.
King’s only touchdown came in the final period when William Giddings recovered a fumble and ran 26 yards. That cut the deficit to 24-6.
