With Folsom High’s outstanding football team, the only question these days is how long quarterback Jake Browning and the other Bulldog starters will play.
On Friday night, most were again sitting shortly after halftime as the top-ranked Bulldogs rolled to a 61-13 win over No. 15 Burbank on homecoming night at Folsom.
Browning, who holds the state career passing record, added seven more touchdowns, six in the first half when the Bulldogs led 47-0. He completed 20 of 31 passes for 362 yards.
The Washington-bound Browning now has 165 touchdowns for his career and 27 through four games this season.
Folsom (4-0) scored on eight of its 10 first-half opportunities, then the first of the third quarter before Browning took a seat for the night.
Homecoming King Cole Thompson had touchdown catches of 75, 43 and 26 yards, giving him 14 for the year.
Browning also threw two touchdown passes to Jake Morgado and one each to Jake Jeffrey (who later took over for Browning at quarterback) and Josiah Deguara, who also had a 4-yard touchdown run.
Folsom also forced three Burbank turnovers, including first-half fumble recoveries by Calvin Gardner and Sam Whittingham.
As a new member of the Sierra Foothill League, Folsom will open league play Friday by hosting Granite Bay.
Give Burbank and coach John Heffernan credit for playing an incredibly difficult schedule in preparing for the upcoming Metro Conference that begins on Friday against visiting Hiram Johnson. The 0-3 Titans have also lost to No. 3 Oak Ridge and No. 4 Grant.
