Cal Strength came to play in every regard Saturday.

In a do-it-all effort, Cal Strength kept its undefeated record intact behind dominant offensive, defensive and special teams efforts in a 29-0 shutout of Proj3ct Elite in the third week of the Winner Circle Athletics Champions League.

Right from the beginning, it was all Cal Strength, with its defense stifling Proj3ct Elite in the opening quarter before its offense eventually found a groove.

Following a 0-0 opening quarter, Cal Strength seized control immediately thereafter, as senior running back Gavin Cribb – a Monte Vista product – gave Cal Strength a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run with 7:13 remaining in the second quarter.

Fellow Danville athlete Jack Quigley – a junior quarterback at San Ramon Valley – later connected with Pittsburg senior receiver Matthew Quesada for a 10-yard touchdown strike with just 24 seconds left in the first half, and a two-point try extended the advantage to 15-0.

Quigley responded with more scores the rest of the way in a star-studded performance for the Division I prospect. Quigley, who boasts an offer from William & Mary, tossed his second touchdown pass of the day on a 45-yard completion to Judah Sheppard, which pushed the lead to 21-0 with 7:08 left in the third quarter.

And Quigley was not done there, as he found Caleb Padrid – a sophomore receiver at San Ramon Valley – on a 40-yard touchdown play, making it 29-0 in the fourth quarter.

Quigley produced his best performance in the WCA Champions League, tossing for 157 yards and three scores. He finished with 15 touchdown passes and just six interceptions in his sophomore season at SRV.

For a second consecutive week, Monte Vista junior Dyllan Devitt was there tag teaming with Quigley in a big way, following up a 162-yard and three-touchdown day in week No. 2 with 127 passing yards.

Both quarterbacks found an abundance of receivers to connect with.

Ten different Cal Strength players caught passes, led by Mitty senior Aden Jackson’s four catches for 51 yards. Padrid finished with 46 yards and a score on two receptions, while four other players had 30-plus yards – Sheppard (45 yards, one touchdown), Monte Vista junior tight end Jack Endries (43 yards), Quesada (33 yards, one touchdown) and San Ramon Valley junior Caden Ridley (31 yards).

Cal Strength’s defense delivered, too, forcing multiple sacks and seeing Dublin’s Adam Moore record an early interception.

Special teams was another standout unit, with Freedom’s Tyler Lepolo blocking a punt that Monte Vista junior Rocco Schramm recovered.
