Jack of all trades: DB Tocho shows off versatility
Jack Tocho really, truly, did it all for the Wildcats defense on Sunday.
Tocho registered three tackles and one tackle for loss, one interception, one pass defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
"I think it was Deion Sanders who said, 'The play doesn't care who makes it.' When I'm doing the right things and I'm in the right position, if the play comes my way, I'm going to take advantage of it," said Tocho after Tuesday's practice at Long Beach City College.
The 6-foot, 202-pound safety, along with the rest of the Wildcats defense, made life miserable for QB Cardale Jones and the Defenders' offense. Jones ended with four interceptions and a passer rating of 20.7 while the Wildcats sacked Jones three times and batted down four of his attempts.
"We were prepared. We had a game plan, we executed it. We made sure we studied and were on the same page and things just went out way because we we're doing what we were supposed to be doing,"Tocho said.
On his second-quarter fumble recovery, Tocho recovered the ball and got it down to the Defenders' four-yard line before he was tackled. Tocho had his eyes set on the end zone.
"I did think I was going to score but the defender came and flashed in front of me and I just made sure I secured the ball," Tocho added."
