VALLEY CENTER — It wasn’t Kyler Kinnamon who led the McPherson ninth-grade football team to a 32-14 victory over Valley Center on Monday, but it was the combination of Kyler to Kinnamon that paved the way.
Kyler Hoppes pitched three touchdown passes to fullback Jace Kinnamon to highlight the Bullpup victory. One of them was a one-handed stab that Kinnamon plucked out of the air before setting sail.
Hoppes finished with four TD passes as he also hooked up with Gabe Hoover. The other touchdown was scored by Honestee Whittker.
Kinnamon had the only 2-point conversion.
The Bullpups are home Monday to play El Dorado.
