Meyers, a senior for Greenville, led the Indians with 192 yards of total offense on 17 carries and one reception. He averaged 10:6 yards per carry and had a long rush of 22 yards in the first haft. After scoring on a Ray Bustamante interception, Big Valley drew first blood to lead 8-0, but that tally would not last for long as Greenville put two on the board after a safety by Dalton Johns got the Indians their first points of the game. And the Indians were not done just yet. At the beginning of the second quarter, on a fourth- down-and-four play from his own 49-yard line, Bustamante handed off to James Martinez for what would be a 51-yard touchdown run to give Greenville a 10-8 lead. Despite the brief lead held by the Indians, the squad from Greenville didn't score again the game and managed to give up 42 points to Big Valley for the 50-10 final score. In addition to his TD, Martinez was also a major force on offense with 155 all-purpose yards. Logan Carmichael put up 128 yards on the night. Darian Potts led the receivers with two catches for 49 yards. Defensively, five players led '13 CHEVY SILVERADO LT 2500HD EXT-CAB 4][4 6.0L VS, Z-71 OFF ROAD PKG., CUSTOI WHEELS & TIRES.

After the game, Meyers gave credit to his teammates and ruminated about the passing of his final battle in orange and black. "The group of guys I played with this year was amazing," Meyers said. "Some of the, best players I have ever worked with were on this team and I have tried my best to give all I had this season. It's a little bittersweet to lose this game, but that is life.

"Overall, we had a good season and grew as a team. We came a long way," Allan said. "Those five wins in a row were big and we felt ready for this game, but they were just too much for us.
