Addison Owen and the football are inseparable.
The 6-foot-2, 206 pound Camas High School senior scored touchdowns on a 57-yard punt return, an 8-yard catch and a 37-yard interception return to help lead the Papermakers to a 66-14 victory over the Hudson’s Bay Eagles Friday, at Doc Harris Stadium.
“It’s exciting,” Owen said. “I feel blessed to have the ability to score three different ways, the teammates to help me, and the coaches to prepare me.
“It’s probably one of the best games I’ve played,” he added. “It’s the first time I can remember scoring a touchdown three different ways. I had to get the team fired up somehow.”
Hudson’s Bay led by six points briefly in the second quarter, before the Papermakers scored 58 straight points. On top of Owen’s three touchdowns, Logan Grindy passed for 271 yards and three touchdowns to three different receivers. Zack Marshall rushed for 98 yards and scored three touchdowns.
“We kind of got off to a slow start, but we overcame it and played well,” Grindy said. “I think we showed a lot of maturity.”
