Landyn Hudson filled the stat sheet during the Ceres High School football team’s 36-15 victory at Amador on Friday in Sutter Creek.

The senior quarterback finished with 303 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions on 12-of-19 passing.

“We got the win,” Hudson said. “That’s all I really care about.”

The Bulldogs improved to 2-0 overall.

The Buffaloes dropped to 0-2.

Ceres High has outscored its first two opponents, 90-36.

“We’re right where we should be,” Hudson said. “This isn’t a surprise. We’re excited but we’re not satisfied. We know how it feels to be at the bottom. There’s definitely a different feeling around our football program. People are starting to talk about Ceres in a good manner.”

The Bulldogs rolled up 398 yards of total offense versus the Buffaloes.

“They couldn’t stop us,” Hudson said. 

Hudson tossed touchdown passes to three different players, including Tarrell Lee-Gill, Ricky Stanley and Manuel Mendoza.

“I wasn’t trying to force anything,” Hudson said. “I was making quick reads. My line was dominant again. That helps with everything.”

Hudson was also quick to praise Ceres High’s passing-game coordinator.

“Coach (Brandon) Moring has a lot of trust in me,” he said. “And I have a lot of trust in him.”

Lee-Gill totaled 83 yards and two touchdowns on three receptions.

He also ran for 44 yards and one TD on 11 carries.

Stanley caught four passes for 112 yards and one touchdown.

Mendoza grabbed three passes for 90 yards and one TD.

Ceres High’s defense allowed just two touchdowns.

Donovan Osuna had five tackles, one interception and one pass deflection.

Faiva Taukalau had four tackles, one interception and one pass deflection.

Thomas Lopez had three tackles, one interception and one pass deflection.

Nikahli Garcia had one sack and one tackle.

Izaiah Rodriguez had six tackles and one pass deflection.

David Diaz Deleon had six tackles

Nicholas Vieyra made all four of his point-after kicks.

The Bulldogs led 22-7 at intermission.

Ceres High outscored Amador 14-8 during the second half.

“Our defense was forcing turnovers,” Hudson said. “Our offense was clicking. Everybody did their job.”
