At the beginning of the high school football season it was clear that Marana transfers Treyson Bourguet and brother Coben Bourguet would have to sit out half of the season per AIA transfer rules.
Both players made their Salpointe debut against Sahuaro on Oct. 4 late in the fourth quarter in a 58-13 victory. Since then, the Lancers (7-0 overall, 3-0 4A Kino) have continued to roll outscoring their next two opponents — Casa Grande and CDO — 94 to 21.
There are just two games left in the regular season as teams make their final push towards the playoffs. With little time left, Salpointe coach Dennis Bene and his staff have decided to name Treyson, a sophomore, as their new starting quarterback to lead the team down the final stretch.
So far this season, in a short amount of time, Treyson has gone 4-for-9 with a touchdown and an interception. He has 76 yards passing, including a 29-yard touchdown pass against CDO last week.
Here is an interview with Treyson after he made his Salpointe debut late in the fourth quarter against Sahuaro three weeks ago.
While Bourguet was at Marana he was a back-up quarterback to his brother Trenton Bourguet, who completed a stellar career with the Tigers that led to a walk-on opportunity with Arizona State. Treyson saw limited playing time in three games behind his brother. He completed 19 of 41 passes for 453 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions.
Treyson will try to lead Salpointe in a quest for the ultimate goal, a state title. The Lancers are the No. 2-rated team in the Open Division and the No. 1-ranked Class 4A team in the state.
Treyson and Salpointe will be in action this Friday as they play at Catalina Foothills.
