Foothill sophomore quarterback Drew Doxtator has gone from an unknown at the beginning of the season to one of the valley’s best passers.

Doxtator had yet another big night for the Falcons on Friday in a 28-13 homecoming victory over the Silverado Skyhawks. Doxtator threw for all four touchdowns.

“He’s done a good job,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “He’s doing well, but we’ve got a lot of guys who can make something happen with the ball in their hands and a lot of guy who block well. I think that’s helped him.”

Kyle Keplinger, Doxtator’s favorite target, caught two of his touchdown passes. Tyren Boykin and Tyler Morris were on the receiving end of the two others.

The Falcons remained poised after falling behind 7-0 to the Skyhawks when they scored on their first possession. Foothill responded with 20 unanswered points. A second-half Silverado touchdown on a reverse play to Deandre Gause wasn’t enough of a spark to rally the Skyhawks back into the game.

Foothill now stands at 6-1 with a significant game against rival Basic on deck.

“They are always excited and come out and play us really tough,” Redmond said. “That game is always a dogfight. They’ve got some great wide receivers this year, so we’ve got to come ready.”
