September 27, 2008 Colts throttle Castle View Brody Lockett averages 36.8 yards per-touch for undefeated South. By TOM PURFIELD THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN South High School's football team didn't need any extra motivation in its homecoming game Saturday afternoon against Castle View, but a little push never hurts. Brody Lockett took the opening kickoff 93 yards to the house and the Colts never looked back in dismantling the Sabercats 56-7 in a Foothills League game at Dutch Clark Stadium. "They said they were going to open up with a kickoff return," Lockett said of some information he received prior to the game. "So we did the exact opposite to them." Lockett totaled 184 all-purpose yards on just five touches of the football and scored three touchdowns, making Castle View's first visit to Dutch Clark and first game against South a forgettable one. When asked if he planned on hitting the weights or running a couple miles after getting the entire second half off, Lockett said, "No, I don't think so." The Colts, ranked No. 3 in Class 4A, remained undefeated at 4-0 in Foothills play and 5-0 overall. The Sabercats didn't win a game in the first half of the regular season. South put together two sustained drives in the first half, scoring on both, and its other five first-half scores were of the quick-hit variety. Lockett capped an 11-play, 61-yard drive with an easy touchdown run and, after Jordan Cartmell recovered a fumble deep in Sabercats territory, fullback Devin Hart bulled in on the next play to make it 21-0. On the Colts' next offensive snap, Lockett went off the left edge, maneuvered through traffic and outran the defense for a 78-yard touchdown run. Kivon Cartwright easily picked off a Castle View screen pass and returned it 39 yards for a score, and Kallen Baca scored two more first-half touchdowns for South, the second capping a 10-play, 49-yard drive. Castle View had three first-half turnovers and, except for a 44-yard run on which there was a play- breaking hold, South limited the ’Cats to 22 total yards. The Colts scored every time they had the ball offensively in addition to the special teams and defensive touchdowns. The second half only took 26 minutes in real time as the 40-point mercy rule kept the clock running without interruption. (Complete story at www.chieftain.com) South had eight days off prior to Saturday's game and the starters didn't get a whole lot of work against Castle View. The Colts will need to be sharp for their game at Air Academy on Friday, but didn't mind not having to extend themselves in this one. "We need the rest. It's starting the playoffs for us right now, pretty much," Lockett said. "We've got some injured players, so we've got to get those kids healthy and get them back."
