The Pima Community College football program has done something it has never done in its 14 year existence; gone 4-0.
The No. 16 ranked Aztecs surpassed last year's win total after they defeated the New Mexico Military Institute 58-31 on Saturday at Kino North Stadium. The Aztecs have scored 231 points in four games and are averaging almost 58 points per game.
Freshman quarterback Antonio Hinojosa (Mountain Pointe HS) broke down the NMMI defense and threw four touchdown passes; two to freshman wide receiver Timmy Hernandez (Mountain Pointe HS) in the first quarter on 20 and 10-yard strikes. He threw a four-yard touchdown pass to sophomore Donovan Moore (Tucson Magnet HS) (pictured) and a 15-yard score to sophomore Eric Dedrick.
The Aztecs also capitalized on NMMI's first half turnovers. Pima scored 21 points after they recovered three kickoff fumbles deep in their territory. The Aztecs took a 38-10 lead at halftime.
Down 3-0 early in the first quarter, the Aztecs would go on to score 28 unanswered points to take command of the game.
Sophomore Deontay Townsend (Mountain Pointe HS), this week's NJCAA national Player of the Week, scored on a four-yard run on the first play of the second quarter. He had 92 yards on 14 carries in the first half and finished with 104 yards for the game.
The Aztecs will play at Mesa Community College next Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
