Jung-powered Sunny Hills cruises past Kennedy   – Orange County Register

BUENA PARK – Tackling Alex Jung must feel like tackling a porcupine.

Problematic as it is getting a paw on the kid, wrestling him to the ground proves the pricklier proposition.

Jung, one of Orange County’s leading rushers, burned another defense Friday night, amassing 285 yards in Sunny Hills’ 36-7 win over Kennedy at Buena Park High.

“We have three three-year starters and four seniors on the offensive line,” Lancers coach Pete Karavedas said. “Those guys take a lot of pride in having one of the best rushing attacks in the area.

“They’re really proud of what Alex is doing.”

Jung, a 5-foot-9 senior, scored thrice, upping his touchdown total to 14.

While his other 26 carries did not result in points, they kept drives alive and allowed Sunny Hills (4-0) to control the tempo.

“It’s all because of my offensive line,” Jung said of his sizzling September. “I got my H-back, my tight end, he does an amazing job picking up blocks. My line sets holes, that’s all I need.

“And my receivers, when I need it on the outside, they set their blocks, and there we go.”

Sunny Hills took a 17-0 lead into intermission and never was threatened. Lancer Railan Peace had an interception in the second quarter and an 85-yard TD run in the fourth.

Sunny Hills avenged last season’s loss to Kennedy (2-3).

“Our kids were up for this game,” said Karavedas, now 12-2 in preseason games as Lancers coach.

“From Day 1, when we sat down,” Jung said, “all of us wanted to beat Kennedy on homecoming night, and we accomplished it.”

After rushing for 407 yards and six touchdowns against Dana Hills a couple weeks back, Jung treated his offensive line to In-N-Out.

He wondered aloud Friday where he’d take the crew next.

“All the credit goes to them,” he said, naming his linemen. “Honestly, I couldn’t do it without them. Without them, where am I?

“They all bust their tails.”

Louie Zamora finished with 191 passing yards for Kennedy. Ethan Hordyk and Ray Aldapa led the team with 46 yards receiving.
